STAN – UPDATE

5/13/22 – Stan showed up in a cat community. He was skinny, scared, and appeared blind in one eye. It took 3 weeks to trap him but finally it happened and he was taken to one of our partner veterinary clinics. Stan is about 8 years old and he had to be sedated to be examined and while he was under, the doctor decided to neuter him at the same time. He had bite wounds on his shoulders and a tick was also found. The poor little guy also needed to have several teeth extracted which was scheduled for a later date — that was yesterday. He is now back with his foster, no longer in pain and now looking for his forever loving home. Stan was obviously abandoned by his owner or may have escaped but there was no identifying information. If you are interested in adopting this sweetie, please contact Bonnie at: bonnie.cushing@yahoo.com – Diana.

RUBY – FOUND WITH GRADE 4 LUXATING PATELLAS IN BOTH LEGS

5/11/22 – This is Ruby. She had surgery yesterday and was a real trooper. We were contacted about Ruby around January. A person had rescued two kittens and one, Ruby, started dragging her back legs and was hardly moving them. Ruby was 5 1/2 months old. Ruby’s person had her x-rayed and it was determined that Ruby had severe (grade 4) luxating patellas in both back leg. After searching, For the Love of Cats Rescue and Adoption (LOCRA) was contacted because Ruby’s rescuer could not only afford the medical but she could not handle the recovery if surgery was able to be done. Ruby was then surrendered to the rescue. Ruby was surrendered to LOCRA and they contacted Gina because they could not afford the total cost of surgery. Ruby had been given pain medication and over the next few months attempts were made to make the surgery happen. Finally, we were able to share the costs of the double leg surgery with one of the best veterinary doctors we work with–Dr. Zalac–and Ruby’s surgery was finally completed. Dr. Z believed performing surgery on both legs at the same time would be best. Today I talked with the office staff and learned that very sweet Ruby did great. When fully recovered, we will cover her spay. It is always great to be able to partner with one of the many amazing rescues in our communities. – diana.

SPRINKLES – UPDATE

Update – I need help..

Sprinkles needs to go with a rescue with a positive reinforcement trainer that can work with her. She has had little training with confidence, impulse control, and boundaries. I feel she is definitely trainable and deserving of a chance. Someone with knowledge of the breed, experience, and patience could help her. She walks good on a leash, friendly with everyone she has met, food motivated, pottie trained, healthy, spayed, seems well and unreactive with other dogs and current on vaccines, heart worm negative. Time sensitive.. Please email me if you are able to help. Gina.4paws1heart@gmail.com

One week ago this little girl was found curled up in a flower pot inside someone’s yard. The pic is below..

It was pouring rain and she was crying to come inside. The finder called me and I offered to scan her for a microchip, but she didn’t have one.

My manager was kind enough to say she could stay for her stray hold which was through the city of Eastpointe. Unfortunately, no one has contacted animal control looking for her. She had yellow stains on her rear area and her stomach which indicates she was possibly in a crate long enough to sit in urine. She has not had one accident in her crate in a week, so I suspect she was sitting for several hours.

We estimate her to be 2 or 3 yrs old. She is pottie trained and we are going to test her with other dogs soon. Next week she will be fixed.

4 paws 1 heart is funding all of her medical care. So far she has needed all vaccines, poop check, flea, tick, heartworm prevention, treatment for diarrhea, bloodwork and the spay is next week. We are currently calling her “Sprinkles” because of her adorable dots. While she is in our care, the staff has been giving lots of love and they are also walking her on our lunch breaks while working with her on commands. She needs some basic training but she is very smart and trainable. She is loving, smart, and friendly with everyone she has met. Walking is very enjoyable for her and she is very food motivated. If you are looking for a forever companion or want more information please email me and I will send an application through Macomb County Animal Shelter. Gina.4paws1heart@gmail.com

TROOPER – FOUND WITH GLAUCOMA AND REQUIRED EYE REMOVAL

5/6/22 – Trooper was rescued in February by a very caring family who had been seeing him in the neighborhood and feeding him. It turned out he was blind from glaucoma and today we authorized his pre-surgery blood work and his eye removal surgery. He has become a loving inside pet who was never truly feral. Prayers for this beautiful baby. – diana.

OLIVER – ROUND WITH A RUBBER BAND WRAPPED AROUND HIS TESTICLES

5/5/22 – Meet Oliver. Rescued after a great deal of work–no names. He appeared to have a weakness in his back legs. He had a rubber band imbedded around his testicles in an attempt to neuter him. Thankfully, we were contacted and one of our faves, Dr. Z, saw him and actually reported back to me that not only was this poor boy inhumanely suffering because of the ‘backyard’ (my term) attempt to neuter him but he had also been shot. X-Rays showed shell fragments in his front shoulders but fortunately the bullets had missed his spine. Dr. Z said “he is going to make a lovely house cat as he purred and was social for everything”. If anyone is interested in this baby, please look up Kittens in the Mittens who have taken him under their rescue. – diana.

HERMAN – REST IN PEACE

5/4/22 – For anyone who believes that cats can and should live “in the wild” or be “inside/outside” cats — please read our recent posts. Again, another RIP. Herman was another beautiful boy, very feral, rescued when he showed up in a cat community. Part of his nose was missing from what appeared to be an infection. He was brought to a veterinary hospital with our approval and it was found that he was missing bone and a tooth was protruding through the hole that was his nose. The doctor thought the cause might have been a spider bite. He was allowed to cross the Rainbow Bridge where he would not longer be in pain. Thank you to our 4p1h friend, Melissa P., for rescuing him and saving him from days of horrific pain on the streets. – Diana

STAN – BLIND IN ONE EYE WITH SEVERAL BITE WOUNDS AND AN UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION

5/2/22 – Stan showed up in a colony cared for by a friend of 4p1h. He appeared to be blind in one eye and had several bite wounds on his body. He also appeared to have an upper respiratory infection. He had not been seen before and the rescuer believes he was ‘dumped’ into the colony. Stan was seen at one of our favorite veterinary hospitals. He is estimated to be about 8 years old and also had several dental issues. Stan was treated for his wounds and infection and will be scheduled for the dental work. Although Stan is a little fearful, he does enjoy being petted. He will be looking for a furever, loving home. If you are interested, DIANA
