6/1/22 – Meet Millie. She was found by Yates Cider Mill in Oakland County, MI. She was infested with fleas and very malnourished. She probably wouldn’t have survived much longer had her rescuer, Lea, not taken her in. 4 paws 1 heart has covered her check up, lab work, medications, and she has made incredible improvement especially with the help of Julie and Tracey. They have opened their hearts and homes to taking care of her emotionally and medically.

Millie is now stronger, very lovable, and playful. She is about 8 weeks old and up for adoption at Moore Vet Hospital. If you are the one to give her a forever home and would like an application please email me at



This is what it’s all about..♡ A letter I received yesterday..


I just wanted to say thank you to you, the staff and to 4 Paws 1 Heart foundation for taking care of Milo and covering his vet bills. It is greatly appreciated.

By posting Milo on the 4 Paws 1 Heart web-sight Milo is now in a forever home. As hard as it was to give him up I know he will be well taken care of by his new adopted family.

They sent me a text message letting me know how things where going. Their cat Ollie has welcomed Milo into his home. They are getting to know each other. There was been no fighting or hissing going on, which is a good. We were able to let Milo out of his cage when we were there. He walked the place, used the scratching post, played with toys and went looking for food and water.

She invited us to come and see how Milo is doing. She saw how hard it was for me and especially my youngest son Scott having to leave Milo at his new family. Scott kept saying I don’t know if I’m comfortable letting Milo stay here but he finally said ok. What made it even hard was when we left Milo was at the screen door watching us leave without him. Which brought tears to our eyes.

We all miss him here.

Thank you

5/26/22 – Chip was trapped, neutered, and released at a mobile home park where we have been helping when needed with medical bills. Chip is a friendly guy who was probably left behind like so many are and after he was taken to a low-cost clinic for neutering, the doctor suggested he be taken to a full service clinic for treatment for severe diarrhea. That’s when we were called in. Chip was seen at one of our favorite places, Comfort’s Place, in Redford, MI and Chip was found to have severe infections. He is now under treatment and we are confident that he will soon be on the road to recovery. When he is fully recovered he will be transferred to the rescue WAG. Without you, we would never be able to be there for the fur orphans. – diana.

BROWNIE – Inured in a Dog Fight and Then Tested Positive for Heart Worm

4/4/22 – Brownie, another dog injured in a dog fight. His owner surrendered him and we authorized treatment for his wounds as well as the usual vetting — vaccines, heart worm test, neuter, flea/parasite treatment, Brownie’s neck wounds were pretty extensive and infected and were treated with antibiotics. Unfortunately, in the process of his exam and treatment, he was found positive for heart worm. Consequently, we also started him on his 30 day pre-injection treatment and when that is complete he will complete his heart worm treatment and hopefully move on to a loving, furever home. Thank YOU to Shelley E. for contacting us and finding a foster and thank you to Susan who is fostering him at this time. The vet staff reported that Brownie loved the office cat and gave kisses to everyone (even during the exam). Shelley said that his smile is contagious and that he’s a real heartbreaker. Without your donations and attendance at our fundraisers, we could never help with the many injured and sick animals rescued from very bad situations. Thank YOU – diana.

4/1/22 – Waffles Update: Here’s a little bit on Waffles’ diagnosis. The next step will be to have some x-rays done which can only be done at Michigan State which we will cover. The condition is ‘fixable’ so after that Waffles will be scheduled for surgery which will be costly. Everyone involved with be trying to raise funds so that Waffles can live a good quality of life in a loving home. Also, here are some current photos of the little guy. – Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080

TOOTHLESS AND FLOOF – Rescued from the Streets and Now Looking for a Furever Home

3/31/22 – Here we are on the last day of a very windy and cold March and the kittens/cats needing help has not stopped. In the past two years there was no “kitten season”. Unfortunately, the overpopulation of cats continue to be overwhelming but we are doing everything we can to make a difference. But, only with the help of our donors, the rescuers, and our amazing vets. Here is Toothless and Floof. Both were taken off the streets, tested, vaccinated, neutered/spayed, and treated for any fleas and parasites. Their finders are hoping to find furever homes. – Diana

WAFFLES – Surrendered, Very Ill, From a Breeder

3/30/22 – Prayers for Waffles. As our many followers know, we very often work with the great doctors and staff of Orion Animal Hospital. A couple of weeks ago, I received a call about Waffles and whether we could partner in her recovery. Today she is seeing a specialist to determine next steps. Here is her story:”Waffles is a 5 month old Toy Poodle with suspected Megaesophagus*. She weighs in at 2.5lbs. She was surrendered by a breeder to me so that I could care for her. We have tried many treatments on her but she is still struggling to swallow her food and currently has a feeding tube. She loves to play with her foster siblings and enjoys cuddling all the time. Thank you so much for your help with Waffles. She truly is the sweetest little peanut. Waffles already has many potential adopters but she will not go anywhere until she is healthy. – Courtney”*Megaesophagus is not a single disease. Instead it is considered a combination disorder in which the esophagus (the tube that carries food and liquid between the mouth and stomach dilates — gets larger) and loses motility (its ability to move food into the stomach). When esophageal motility is decreased or absent, food and liquid accumulate in the esophagus and have difficulty getting into the stomach. Regurgitation is the most common sign of megaesophagus. Regurgitation is. a passive process. Food and water sloshes around in the esophagus and with the help of gravity, is released back up. There is no heaving, gagging or retching prior to regurgitation. Megaesophagus is the most common cause of regurgitation in dogs and cats.” (Tammy Hunter, DVM; Robin Downing, DVM, CVPP, CCRP, DAAPM)diana.
