Tori

Tori Image

Hi everyone, Tori has settled in very well. It took her a few days to get used to wearing her new collar with a bell on it. The elderly cat that we have is doing plenty of squawking and hissing in her direction but is getting used to her new 'sister' slowly. Tori goes INTO each of the kids rooms in the morning and wakes them up for school with some gentle meowing - it's kind of cute. She is curious about the outside world and has poked her nose out onto the deck a couple of times. Generally scooting right back in as soon as she hears any noise at all. She is also HAVING a blast playing with all of the little kitty toys scattered around the house. She gets pretty good speed sliding around the laminate floors. Basically, she is fitting in just fine. Slowly finding her favourite spots to sleep around the house and snuggling with one of us every chance she can. I've enclosed a picture of her on the stairs. Take Care! Jan , Shawn, Bryn, and Ryan

Nala

Nala Image

Hello Everyone! Just wanted to send a quick UPDATE on Nala. We adopted her in December, and FROM the moment she jumped in the back of our vehicle at her foster mom's, she has made herself right at home. Nala is a playful, gentle & loving dog - we can't tell you just how happy we are that she came INTO our lives! She and our other yellow lab Mr Copper are best friends, going everywhere and doing everything together - including getting INTO trouble. They each have claimed one of the lounge chairs outside under the gazebo for those lazy summer day naps, and especially love going for walks together. Nala is a true lab - we can't keep her out of the water ! She loves her toys, and especially loves "her baby", a little brown teddy bear that she had at her foster home. She likes to sneak INTO my bedroom and hide her baby under my pillow, and if she thinks she can get away with it, she settles in next to it for a snooze. Thanks to everyone at NASAP - we feel very lucky to have found Nala!

Oliver and Gibson

Hi everybody at NASAP (especially Pat!)! It is Oliver & Gibson here (formerly Ollie (the orange/white cat) & Stan (they grey/white cat)) reporting in. We just wanted to let everybody know how happy we are at our new home! We are what mom calls "wedding presents" FROM dad. She always tells us we are the best wedding presents she got! We must be pretty special! When mom and dad picked us up FROM the PetSmart Luv-A-Pet centre back in November, they took us on a long car ride to our new home. Before we left, they bought us this cool cat tree at PetSmart that we use every day. We are "good boys" and don't scratch the furniture; instead we use our tree! We have LOTS of toys that we play with. Every morning Gibson goes INTO mom and dad's room and wakes up mom at 4:30am so that we can all play. Mom isn't a morning person though, so we don't usually get to play until later on. Sometimes mom locks us out of the room and calls us by our special nickname of "little buggers". We then go off and play with all of our toys until mom and dad get up. Then we crawl INTO their bed and go for our morning nap after we get our breakfast. Oliver has what mom calls "food allergies" and has to eat a special food. Gibson sneaks pieces out of Oliver's bowl with his paw. We share very well, so there are no scuffles over food or toys. Back in March mom and dad adopted a brother for us FROM the SPCA. He is HUGE! Mom calls him a "Rottweiler". Oliver loves him, but Gibson isn't too sure of him. Sometimes he tries to climb our cat tree too, and when he does, mom puts him outside to "cool off". That just proves mom loves us best because we get to play inside while he as to go outside! When he is outside, we like to sit in the window and stare at him. We quietly giggle at him out there! Life is awesome for us! Thanks NASAP for looking after us until we found our forever home. We are glad that there is a great place like NASAP for homeless cats and dogs to go to while they wait for special people like mom and dad to come along. We are really happy with our new family (even the dog!). Love, Oliver & Gibson

Snoopy

Snoopy Image

THANK YOU NASAP!!!! Hi! My name is Snoopy, I am about 2 years old and my new family says I am "a really handsome lab cross. My family came to find me in March 2006 after I stayed for a while with a NASAP Angel named Tara and her loving family. I am healthy and doing well with my new family, who loves me sooooooo much. My family has taken me to obedience training with a great lady named Maggie and I am very well behaved. I am allowed to still be Me though, my family embraces my dog spirit and takes me for lots of walks and I get to visit other dogs (I love my friends!) at the off-leash areas. Being with other dogs and being free to smell and explore the world is very important to me. I love my family and am learning to be good with the household cat. I hope to find another dog FROM NASAP to become part of my family in the future. Thank you Tara and family you are kind people and I appreciate what you did to help me find a home. NASAP is truly wonderful for animals and people. Love, Snoopy

Skittles

Skittles Image

Hi my name is Skittles, in September I was happily minding my own business playing with the other piggies at my foster moms house when out of the blue this lady showed up. She brought with her another piggy named Micah and we played together for awhile while my foster mom and her talked. Next thing I knew I was on my way somewhere new. Now let me tell you this wasn't the first time I was heading to a new home so I was a little apprehensive and scared. I was wondering if this new family would bring me back after a little while or whether they would see how wonderful I was and keep me. Well as it turns out I am still in my "new" home. My mommy is a very very loving mommy and I love my sister Micah... most of the time. We have our moments and little spats just like other "girls". Do you want to know something funny? Well it seems that Micah got a nickname FROM my Mommy and Daddy before I went to live there, they nicknamed her first Micah Mouse then ...Miss Mousie...well see the funny thing is is that my nickname is Kit or Kitty so we are affectionately knows as Kitty and Mousie...isn't that the funniest thing ever?? Anyhow I must get back to Micah now as we have a play date and it's treat time...Incidentally when Mommy asks who wants a treat you should hear Micah and me squeal...we try to see who can squeal the loudest and Mommy just laughs. I love it here and I am so happy that my Mommy and Daddy chose me to live with them. Love, Kitty

Solo

Solo has been adopted to a wonderful family with a 4 yr old girl and a 10 yr old poodle cross to keep him company. Grampa is also home during the day so Solo (who's new name is Rolo) will be kept busy with lots of new things to see and explore and new people to play with. We wish you all the best Rolo in your new home.

Ellie

Ellie Image

Hello NASAP: Here is an UPDATE on Ellie, the puppy we adopted FROM you in May. She is the sister of Ares and Solo who appear on this Happy Tails page as well! Her puppy picture was on the NASAP site originally as Fifi Snowdrop, but now she is our beloved Ellie! This picture was taken July 21at the lake where she loves to run and play with her friends Pidg and Kashtin the older dogs of my sister and a friend who have been her mentors at the lake and at the off-leash. Ellie is very smart and is learning so much so fast we probably wont have to even take her to obedience classes. Her 4 human siblings love her so much and the alpha male Dad at our house turns INTO a big softy when Ellie looks at him with her big brown eyes. Thank you NASAP, for rescuing Ellie, her 10 brothers and sisters and her mom Teagan for us! Barb and Ron, Edmonton.

Star

Star Image

We wanted to let everybody know how lucky we have been to have found Star. We adopted Star in September of 2005. We have little children so we were in need of finding a dog that could put up with the constant "affection". Star's foster family was extremely helpful in finding the right dog for us and answering any questions or concerns that we may have had (THANK YOU!) Since then Star has settled in great. She is amazing with our children and they are definitely her babies. She watches them and always knows where they are. She loves going to the lake that is nearby, and tracking down squirrels in the bush across the way. We have never had to worry about her running off as she never leaves our side or goes very far. She is a wonderful friend. Thank you again NASAP. Without people like you we would have never met our forever faithful friend.
