4 Paws 1 Heart has covered the medical needs of so many of my fosters. I would not be able to save kittens and cats if they weren't here for me. These folks are angels in my book. I love them to the moon and back!

I found a dog that looked like she had been on the road for awhile on my lawn one day.. I took him in and shared her on Facebook to see if I could find her owners, Diana responded and offered to help being a fellow SCS resident. She did not know me at all but out of the goodness=s of their organization and her heart offered to have Lucky spayed thru 4 Paws and One Heart if I could keep her...I absolutely kept her and always kept her posted to see if she had owners looking for her... I cannot not say enough about the people at 4 Paws One heart...they are saints on earth for what they do to help our furry friends

I first encountered 4 Paws 1 Heart when one of my ferals was injured. I was desperate to get medical help for him, but had no money. A bunch of my friends led me to 4P1H and this organization has been amazing from the moment I first came into contact with them. They've funded TNR for 6 of my ferals, plus medical treatment for 2 others. Without 4P1H I would never have been able to provide this level of care for my outside feral community that I love so much. Whenever my ferals are in need 4P1H steps up.

4 Paws 1 Heart is a wonderful organization. I found a kitten, that I thought had a broken leg
and when I contacted them, they immediately set up an appointment for the kitten. It
turned out the cat did not have a broken leg, as he started walking on it, so I cancelled the
appointment, but I was amazed at how they were willing to help!

I first really comprehended what 4 Paws 1 Heart does when they saved a kitten's life, and enriched our lives. They give animals a chance that normally wouldn't get one. My Snickers was found as a tiny kitten, in a frozen alley crying for help with his eyes encrusted shut. then 4 Paws 1 Heart team went into action and ultimately saved his life, giving him a second chance....and we adopted him. Since then I have been a faithful supporter of 4 Paws 1 Heart, not just because of this one incident, but because of all the ones that followed. They work together with rescues and organizations in helping with these medical costs - so your donation to 4 Paws 1 Heart goes to many animal organizations - donate now and spread the love!

Hello my name is Brian Dombrowski. I have helped rescue many cat's and dog's in the past few years. If it were not for 4paws1heart helping me help animals in need. I would not have been able to afford to help those animals. 4paws1heart is a blessing for animals that need pur help. Thank you for always helping caring people help afford to save precious animals lives. I appreciate all that you do for furry animals in need. Without 4paws1heart i would not have been able to rescue more then 18 cats and kittens. Around 10 dog's this is truly a great organization. Thank you with all my heart.

4 Paws 1 Heart really has their heart in the right place. They work to provide veterinary care for stray and abandoned animals in need through a network of caring veterinary professionals and wonderful volunteers. They generally do not conduct adoptions themselves, but work with other great rescue groups in the metro Detroit area to find these animals loving homes. They often answer the call of their rescue counterparts to assist with financing medical care also. They are a completely volunteer organization and use 99% of their donations to help the animals - the 1% covers a phone bill for the group.
