11/18/22 – Meet Chance. He is a very sweet dog who was roaming the streets of Allen Park. The rescuer notices an imprint on his neck where a collar had been but there was no identifying information. The Animal Control had no room for him and his owner/rescue couldn’t be found. The kind people were concerned to bring him in because they have other pets but were determined to do what was necessary to keep him from being euthanized. We were contacted and thankfully he was able to get into our good friends at Five Mile Animal Hospital for his heart worm test, vaccines, and neuter on this Monday, November 22. Chance’s rescuer says he is a very sweet boy and they will either keep him or find him a good home. Without your support, we couldn’t help these beautiful orphans. – Diana.
No info is needed. No sign in or email or anything. Just a selection for 4 Paws 1 Heart and a click. So simple. This is such an opportunity to win money that is so desperately needed. And all it takes is a single vote and less than a minute. – Kim
11/17/22 – I decided to show a comparison photo of what this baby looked like 4 months ago today.
Good morning everyone. Just a quick Muffins’ update. We heard from the specialist at OVRS yesterday and she has consulted with some of her colleagues from Michigan State. Today, I will call and make an appointment with internal medicine department and get her scheduled for a consultation. In the last 10 minutes I’ve cleaned her poor little nose about 20 times. That’s an all day thing. I cannot wait for her to be snot free! – Gina
11/16/22 – Unfortunately, no matter how much we try, we just can’t save them all. But, we do try to find some comfort in know in knowing that we all did what we could so that these babies don’t die horribly on the streets without any love. With much sadness we just want to remember Aaron and Shortcake and please keep their rescuers and caregivers in your prayers.
At just 3 months old Aaron was dumped on the porch of our 4p1h friend, Patricia. Her Ring showed him being dumped by a neighbor. He had a hernia and an injured tail. We covered his initial medical needs and then he was found to have a heart issue. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for Aaron to see a specialist and he was prescribed medication that he would have to take for his entire life. Aaron seemed to be doing alright but then he started having issues again and we again covered his visit to Dr. Z where it was found that he had FIP (we’ve talked about this deadly disease in the past). Fortunately, a great organization chose to cover Aaron’s experimental FIP treatment and we agreed to pay for his follow-up exams. But, sadly, Aaron died of kidney failure before he got through his first 30 days. His foster mom said that Aaron was quite the character and she will never forget him.
Shortcake was another one of those special cats. Although she was a sweet feral’ cat, she was cared for by our friend, Neenah, for 5 years. Recently, Neenah, could see that Shortcake’s health was failing and although it took her several weeks, she finally got Shortcake trapped and we proceeded to get her to the vet. Unfortunately, it was too late and Shortcake passed away. But, again, she knew love.
In both cases, we do what we can but sometimes it’s either too late or just not enough but we couldn’t do anything without the support of our friends and the love of so many people like Patricia and Neenah whose hearts break far too often yet they continue to fight the fight. Please keep all of our stray animals in your prayers as the temps start to decrease and please keep the many rescuers and our veterinary staffs in your prayers; they all need our support. – diana.
