Paisley

Paisley Image

Paisley was adopted in February of 2005 after being fostered with her two sisters. She has turned INTO one of the most talkative and a curious cats, the world has ever seen. (And as you can tell by this photo, she really is a poser, she loves a camera!) Paisley's days are mainly spent chasing and playing with her two buddies, Kopi & Kyrra (2 Siberian huskies). Although she loved Edmonton, she has settled well in Calgary. :)

Angel

In October 2004, I went looking for love and found it in Angel (formerly Hemi). The picture shows her last winter with a neighbour girl she took an immediate liking to. When we first got her she was scared of everybody and everything. She still freaks out at strange or sudden noises or objects, and barks vigorously at people she doesn't know, but she now has tons of confidence--sometimes so much that I wonder if I should have named her Devil! She gets on well with our 3 cats, and sometimes even gets our old lab Sebbie to play with her. She's extremely smart, and obviously incredibly beautiful, and gives as much love as she gets. It was a match made in Heaven, and I'm so grateful to Carolyn and NASAP for looking after this lovely dog until she came to make her home with us. Pam Croft

Lucion and Gabrielle

We recently adopted two kittens named Lucion and Gabrielle (Oct. 9, 2006). They have been renamed Magick and Kalli. There have been no adjustment problems whatsoever and the little sweethearts have charmed the whole family. Magick likes to nibble on fingers (which we will stop), and loves to wash our hands and faces. Both cats love to cuddle and follow us around like little puppies. My 5 year old grandson, who has a fear of cats, seems to be overcoming his phobia with the help of these two little darlings. We have lots of little nooks and crannies for them to explore, and they seem to be HAVING a good time. Here is a picture taken at our home. Thanks again for matching us with these sweet little kittens. Thora Dorn

Petey

Petey Image

We adopted Petey about 18 months ago, so I thought we should let you know about our "happy tail." Petey has really become a true member of the family because of his buoyant and unique personality. Although Petey is a senior dog, he is really just big baby who loves to cuddle, go for walks and be in the car. We have had a few challenges with Petey - his arthritis has gotten worse and he is a whiz at detecting and eating garbage in mere seconds - but we couldn't imagine life without him. We welcomed our first baby INTO the family 12 months ago and Petey - all 81 pounds of him - has been just great with our son! Thanks to everyone involved in bringing this larger than life character INTO our lives!!

Koda

Thank you so much to everyone at NASAP, especially Genevieve, for helping us find Koda (formerly Odin). Koda is one of Teagan's pups, and is happy to hear FROM Happy Tails that so many of his brothers and sisters are happy in their new homes! Koda is so unbelievably smart (and handsome, as you can see by his picture)! By four months he knew sit, stay, lay down, roll over, play dead, sit pretty, shake a paw, high five, fetch, and many more adorable tricks. We didn't need to take him to obedience school because he is so well behaved and eager to please. He is very much a "mama's boy" and follows me all over the house. He spends most of his day playing outside in a big fenced yard, then comes inside in the evening to relax with the family. He sleeps on the floor of our room, but as soon as dad leaves for work in the morning, jumps onto the bed to sleep in a bit with mom. He loves taking us for walks and especially enjoys pulling us on the rollerblades. He plays frisbee and tug-o-war with his dad, and loves to chase magpies. His best friend, Chaz, is a scottish terrier/tea cup poodle cross, and hardly weighs anything at all. He and Koda rough house for hours and Koda is very gentle with his much smaller buddy. We know that we are so lucky to have found Koda, because he has made our lives so much richer! Thank you NASAP!

Cha Cha

Cha Cha Image

Hello everybody, I just wanted to share how wonderful Cha Cha is now doing. You can see her with her two best friends, waiting for a cookie! Cha Cha loves the rain, to play in the mud and dig, eat tomatoes and apples in our backyard, play through the fence with the neighbours dogs, get lots of hugs and caresses, play with her siblings, give us a good lick, cuddling,... So many things! Everybody loves her, she is quite irresistible with her sparkling personality. A big thank you to Genevieve who fostered Cha Chas mom, brothers and sisters. All the pups had a wonderful puppyhood because of them! A big thank you again, Marie-Paule, Olav, Lars, Missie, Milou and Cha Cha (wif, waf, wouf!)

Sprocket

Sprocket Image

We recently adopted our dog Sprocket FROM NASAP. Thanks so much to Carol and Dave for doing such a great job with this guy! He has fit in really well in our home. We recently moved INTO our new house, so Sprocket has a lot more room and a yard too! He gets along so well with our cats, neither of whom were too sure about him at first. Our cat Flynn loves to pounce on Sprocket's tail, but Sprocket takes it like a gentleman. Sprocket loves his new neighbourhood, and enjoys visiting all the other dogs in the area. He seldom barks, and has great house manners! He has adapted really well to being on his own all day. He loves to cuddle on the couch with his dad and get tummy rubs. I think he looks pretty happy in his picture! Thanks again to NASAP, and to Carol and Dave (and of course Rufus!). Kylie and Sean

Clarence and Roy

Clarence and Roy Image

We adopted Roy (on right) FROM NASAP 8 months ago and we can't imagine our lives without him. With the knowledge that Roy may have been euthanized if it weren't for NASAP and their foster homes we decided to start fostering ourselves. Roy loves the company of other cats and with foster cats coming and going we noticed that he was lonely whenever he latest buddy found a new home. As a result we decided to adopt another NASAP cat to keep Roy company, and to be a cherished new member of our family. We chose Clarence (on left) because he got along well with other cats and had a laid back personality. He had also been waiting over a year in foster care for a forever home. We couldn't be happier to have Clarence as a member of the family. He and Roy love to play together and he is a funny, loving fellow to have around. He seeks us out a couple times a day for cuddles and spends the rest of the day finding soft spots and patches of sunshine to nap in. He loves catnip mice and wrestling; interests which Roy share! For some reason he loves hot drinks and we struggle to keep him out of our coffee cups and hot chocolates. I wake up in the mornings with Roy on one side and Clarence on the other. We will continue fostering soon and encourage other homes to do the same. It is an incredible feeling to save these wonderful beings FROM being euthanized and giving them some time to find their forever family. We have found amazing homes for 12 cats since we began fostering in April! We would also like to thank Clarence and Roy's foster home for bringing them to us.
