3/7/24 – On March 3, 2017, Carla arrived in the home of Team Chance. She had been surrendered to the Taylor Animal Shelter after having her legs slammed in a door and becoming paralyzed. She was only 9 weeks old. 4 paws 1 heart was contacted and after I spoke with Denise (the foster mom to Chance) we agreed to take on Carla’s medical needs. We had hoped she would be able to some day walk (although a little Gimpy) like Chance, but unfortunately no amount of therapy was enough. So, if anyone knows what a medical challenge is and how much unwanted animals need our amazing Village, it’s our girl, Carla.

This is great advice but I would also like to suggest that in addition to microchipping your pet, you consider looking into collars (breakaway especially for cats) that have air-tag type equipment which will provide tracking ability just in case your baby escapes the house. – diana P.O.

CARLA: Well Team, on Sunday we turn our clocks forward 1 hour. Spring will officially be here very soon and kitten season will be in full swing! While we’re making our plans for the warmer weather, kittens will be being born in garages, back yards, fields, under houses and in the streets. They will be starving, getting hit by cars, attacked by predators…4 legged and sadly 2 legged.

4 Paws 1 Heart will be trying to keep up with all the calls they will be getting to help pregnant mamas, injured kittens, and vaccines, spay and neuter for kittens and cats being saved by rescuers. There’s 3 ways you can help.

1. Make sure your pets are spayed & neutered.

2. Keep your cats inside where they are safe.

3. Make a donation to 4p1h so they can keep up with the demand and continue saving lives and making Second Chances and happily ever afters possible.

Be a SuperHero Thankyou!
