Oakley

Oakley Image

Hi Everyone at Nasap Just wanted to give you a quick UPDATE on the two dogs we adopted FROM you. We adopted Oakley in June of 2002 at 8 months old. He is a partially deaf (about 80%) Border Collie/Newfoundland cross. Jenna was adopted in November of 2003 at 9 years old. She is a Shepard/Lab cross. Jenna is 13 years old now but still very active. She is starting to SHOW her age a little after a long walk or a run at the dog run park as she as some difficulty climbing the stairs back INTO the house or jumping in the car. However, she still plays with Oakley like she was a pup and she is the Mother Hen of all our family. Constantly breaking up fights between the kids or between the animals by barking and contributing her two cents worth. Oakley on the other hand is 5 years old and as goofy and silly as any animal I have ever met. He knows all his basic commands in hand signals but thinks that if he doesn't look at me than he doesn't have to follow them. He also will spend hours trying to groom the cats if they will allow him too. My oldest cat Zeus will put up with it for only a few minutes and then will swat Oakley across the nose (claws sheathed) when he has had enough. I cannot thank Nasap and all the volunteers enough for the wonderful work they do. These two friends have been such a wonderful blessing in my family life. Whenever someone is looking for a pet to adopt I always recommend they look at Nasap. Words really cannot cover how much Nasap and its volunteers mean to my family. THANK-YOU.

Charlie

Charlie Image

I wanted to write in and let everyone know how Charlie is doing. He was quite spooked when I first met him in February and he really liked to hide under blankets, behind couches and even under my bed when I adopted him. I thought my room would be comfortably his but he quickly made the back of my closet, on a pile of shoes, his home. It wasn't exactly how things would work out with Charlie as he seemed really apprehensive for the first few weeks. Eventually, after countless nights of backaches, sleeping halfway in my closet on the floor, Charlie began to cuddle with me. I think he missed our closet sleepovers as he eventually began to come out at night and sleep with me in bed, or bat a sock around my room for countless hours. Sometimes he even gave me kisses with his nose. We have made the basement his home now and he has plenty of adventures to explore. I can always hear his bell jingle as he moves about downstairs. He no longer runs FROM me when I enter the room and is running away less, when my big scary brother enters the room. Charlie has made a lot of progress and to anyone out there that is maybe doubting what their pet is capable of... give them a chance, go INTO their world and build some trust, I believe with time, they will come around.

Dottie

Dottie has been adopted to a great family with 13mth old twins to play with on 5 acres! Dottie, who's name is now Maggie, gets to sleep on her "parents" bed and is loved so much already. She also gets to hang out with the cat when the twins are HAVING a nap or while her family is away on errands etc... This a great new home for Dottie who had such a rough start to her life.

Keeto

Keeto Image

I just wanted to give you an UPDATE on Keeto.Hes has become a big boy for sure. Big and beautiful I might add. Doing very well. He is quite the character too. Hannah and he have a great time FROM chasing each other around to curling up on the bed side by side. Defintely bonding. Thanks again for choosing me as Keeto's home. He's a great addition to my home & my clients love him. Some say they are going to steal him when I'm not looking. I could never part with him. He's everything and I could have asked for more. Thanks again. Glen.

Comet

Comet Image

We wanted to write in to tell you how Comet (ID # 06-184-C) is doing. We love this cat! There is no sign of the respiratory infection that he had after being rescued by NASAP save the odd sneeze, and he is the picture of health. We even found out (through his tattoo) that he is younger than expected - just 5 years old - which likely explains that playful personality! He delights us with his antics on a daily basis, especially when he goes charging after a bouncy ball. He can dribble the ball and catch it in midair. We've never known such a talented cat. That, combined with his nerves of steel (he loves the vacuum in particular and is the opposite of skittish) and his love of snuggling with the kids when they go to bed, has made him the perfect cat for our family. We owe a huge thank you to Les for nursing Comet back to health so that we could adopt him. Thank you NASAP! We are attaching a photo that we hope you can use on the Happy Tails page. Regards, Christine Vogel & Family

Bunnicula and Jiminy

Bunnicula and Jiminy Image

Hello Everyone at Nasap. Everyone here is doing great. We had a hard time of it for awhile. Bunnicula was being such a pain and wouldn't be friends with Jiminy (we have decided to change his name to Artoo) Finally they gave INTO each other and are the best of friends. I am sending you a photo of them with their kitty sister. Not the best photo but they are so fast moving its hard to catch them all together. They have moved INTO a bigger condo and seem to be quite happy. Bunnicula is definitely the boss but I think that Artoo is okay with that as long as she cleans him regularly.

Poncho and Olive

Poncho and Olive Image

Happy Anniversary to us! It's been a year exactly since these 2 came to live with us... and we couldn't be more thrilled! They're just great lapdogs.. although Miss Olive is a bit heavy..and she would rather sit beside you so you can scritch her as long as *she* wants! They love to curl up with anyone who sits still long enough.. including babies and toddlers... they even like to "watch" movies with the kids... Bath time with the two is fun.. kitchen sinks work wonderfully.. they put their paws on the windowsill and watch the back alley.... Thanks again..
