Chloe needed an emergency C-section when two kittens were stillborn and it was feared the others were also dead and wouldn't come out. Thanks to the fast action of Dr. Philsbury at Cody Pet Hospital, mom and two babies survived and are doing well! 4Paws paid the balance of her bill so she could they could go home to their family.


Meet little Mia, who needed an emergency operation. Her uterus was filled with pus and badly swollen. After spending 3 days at Cody Pet Hospital Mia went home and is doing much better! 4Paws helped by paying part of the vet bill.


Teddy had an awful, freak accident in which he got hit in the jaw while playing with family. He had emergency surgery and a long, painful recovery. 4-Paws helped pay the vet bill. Just after Teddy turned 1 year old he got the news his jaw healed well and he didn't need more surgery! This pup has LOTS of energy and loves to play.


Tessa needed his shots updated and some blood work done. He later developed swelling and bleeding on his behind and was very sore. 4-Paws paid all his vet bills so he could get better. Now he likes to sit outside and greet his visitors.

Harry & Lloyd

Harry and Lloyd's mom took in a stray during the awful cold but these two boys got infected with a virus from him. They were hospitalized for several days to stabilize them and 4 Paws made a donation toward their care. The stray was also cared for and will live with this wonderful family who took him in!

Ms. Dashwood

4-Paws recently helped poor Ms. Dashwood from Attleboro who was throwing up, not eating and losing weight. We paid for all kinds of tests and her medications. The vet thought it was blood parasite, but wasn't sure. However, the meds worked, she started eating and gained some weight back. It was a scary few days for her and we are happy she is on the mend.


This poor little thing was passed from home to home and finally landed at her current Attleboro home where she is well loved. However, she had an infected nipple and what we believe was dead tissue that was very painful. 4-Paws paid for her surgery, biopsy and spay and we were very happy to hear her biopsy came back negative!


This is Sipsy....when she was rescued from the south and arrived at her new home a few years ago she was suffering from Lyme Disease. She got better but recently had a relapse. 4-Paws paid for her vet visit and meds and now she is doing much better.


Here is Jack, who was always running around the neighborhood looking for girls. We paid for him to be fixed, have heart worm and lyme tests and an updated rabies shot. He got a clean bill of health and is now content to stay home. He happily posed with some of our board members and his dad.


Bambi needed some tests and surgery and we helped his mom paying for his vet bills. The cone was not fun to wear, but now he is doing much better.


Here's Quinn. We supported her treatment when it was discovered she had a heart murmur and needed special care during her spaying procedure. She recovered and has been adopted through the Paws of Plainville Animal Shelter.


This is Oreo, who had urinary tract problems and couldn't stop throwing up. We helped pay his vet bills so tests could be done and medicine given. He feels much better now!

Another 4Paws Success

Meet Tinkerbell who spent three days going to three different vets and hospitals. She had emergency colon surgery to save her life and the next day this lucky little girl went home.

Donations provided to 4Paws were used towards payment of the resultant hospital bill. Thank you all for your generosity.

A Rescue Success for 4Paws

Here is Jesse, a rescue dog, who is the first animal we were able to help under our expanded mission. He is now neutered and up to date on his shots. In the picture on the left (below), Jesse smiles his thanks!
