At approximately 5:00pm, on Sunday, August 30th, 2020, an injured kitten was brought into the Eastpointe Police Station lobby. The reporting parties stated a vehicle pulled off to the side of the road and stated they were going to “dump” the kitten, but instead handed the kitten off to them. Chief ACO Pylar was called and came in immediately to examine the overall condition of the kitten. The kitten is estimated to be 2-3 months old, female and black and white in color. She was not wearing a collar and no microchip was found upon a full body scan. The kitten appeared to have burns on her face, head and most severely, on her ears. Half of the kittens body appears shaved and singed. The kitten was lethargic, pale/anemic and had a very low temperature. Chief ACO Pylar immediately contacted our friends at 4 Paws 1 Heart , who without hesitation, agreed to cover the emergency veterinary care this poor girl desperately needed. She is now at an emergency veterinary hospital receiving treatment. She is currently being hospitalized and carefully monitored by their wonderful veterinarians. We will continue to investigate this and ask that if anyone has any information as to who owned this kitten, contact Chief ACO Pylar at, (586) 445-5100 Ext. 1035.
A very big thank you to our friends at 4 Paws 1 Heart, for your compassion and generosity to help as many sick and injured animals that you possibly can. We are very grateful to have your support ! 💙🐾

8/25/20 – Penny was left behind in the backyard of an abandoned house. Upon learning that Penny was left behind and that no one had been living in the home or caring for her, she was released from the tow chain she had been “secured” with and was taken to a vet for an exam. Unfortunately, like so many found in this particular City, Penny tested positive for heart worm. The rescue group asked if we could pay for her treatment and we, of course, said ‘yes’. Penny is a really sweet girl and is currently in a good foster home. Anyone interested in her potential adoption should contact Streethearts Animal Rescue. Another life is saved because of the generosity of our supporters. – diana

8/20/20 – Meet handsome Jack. He was chained in a yard for his entire life. Good friends of 4p1h were able to get Jack surrendered and from now on he will live a life of love and shelter. We were happy to play a role in Jack’s journey by taking care of all of his medical needs. – Diana
8/15/20 – Can you believe that on Tuesday, August 18, 4 Paws 1 Heart will be celebrating our 10th anniversary!! I swear it only seems like yesterday when Gina DeLuca came into our lives because she was the vet tech at a veterinary hospital we had decided to use for our very sick kitty. At the time, the vet hospital had a small kitten rescue which Gina took care of. The relationship with Gina became a little stronger when she took in a hours-old kitten who had been left at our doorstep by an outside cat who had 4 kittens that morning. Gina named that kitten ‘Mouse’ and Mouse became her constant companion for a number of weeks.
Unfortunately, Mouse did not survive but her mom became our cat, Sophia, one of her babies moved in with my mom and dad, and her other two babies found homes
Tony, my husband, and I remembered Gina and her kitten rescue and when we had some extra money from a family fundraising event, we decided to donate it to Gina. But when we contacted her, we found out that she had moved on to another job at an emergency hospital in Harper Woods, MI.
Gina told me about her experiences there and that was the beginning of our discussions as to how we could make a difference for those stray animals being brought into the emergency hospital. The majority of those animals were injured or ill and had no one to care for them, let alone pay for the medical treatment. Gina and I did some research and learned that there was no organization in our region who was committed to funding medical treatment for stray animals. At that point, I was able to convince a few of my colleagues from Leadership Macomb to join us in our mission and the rest is history.
We applied and joyously received our 501c3 – non-profit status and since that very beginning, we have paid $926,961 in medical bills for over 7,000 stray, abandoned, and abused animals. We continue to be humbled by the amazing support we have received from our communities, our donors, and so many veterinary hospitals. There are many cases that stand out for me but I think that two of the most prominent, which brought attention to our organization, involved Hercules and Katniss. Their stories were so heartbreaking that they brought awareness of the cruelty of some humans and the plight of those most vulnerable in our society. Hercules’ back legs were broken by his owner and Katniss was left out in the rain, at the street curb, with the garbage.
Please check out our website, or are main fb page to read the many cases we have been involved with since 2010. Again, thank you for your long-time support. Please know that you have made a significant difference in many lives. – diana
8/11/20 – Bentley was living in a car with a homeless person. That person apparently dropped him off at another home and during that time he was attacked by another dog and suffered a severe gash very close to his eye. The rescuer had been trying to get Bentley from this person for a month because of suspected abuse and was finally able to get the person to surrender him. Bentley was taken to our partner emergency hospital where the wound was treated with antibiotics. He also received his vaccinations. Bentley is currently in a safe home. – diana
