Leia (now Zuri)

Leia (now Zuri) Image


Leila is now named Zuri (swahili for magnificent and beautiful), as she looks like a sleek black panther. She is growing fast and had adjusted in less than one day! She is really smart and super affectionate. All her shots are up to date, and she made friends with her vet. She is eating only organic food, as we want only what is best for her. Adopting her was the best thing ever! Please see the photos attached. Thank you for all the wonderful work that you are doing!



Pandora Image

Pandora is doing well - she is a very busy cat and is always checking out what we or the boys are doing.  She likes to sleep on our bed and sometimes she sleeps in the boys' room too.  She loves to play floor hockey with whatever she can find that the boys have left out (sometimes in the middle of the night :)  ).  She is healthy and steadily gaining weight, so I have started adding a reduced calorie cat food to her mix.  She is 10 1/2 pounds now.  She is keenly interested in the activities outside the window as you can see in one of the pictures!

Have a great summer!



Maude Image

Maude is doing fantastic. She fits right in to our family and she is such a sweet little girl. 

Thanks for providing adoption service to animals like Maude. I recommend you to all my friends!

Figaro Image

I thought I would update you on Figaro. He is such a fun cat. My cat took a few days to adjust and went from wanting to bite him to loving him as the picture I sent you shows. My cat has the happiest look on her face now. They chase each other and wrestle. He tried to dominate her but she gently put him in his place!! I'm amazed that she lets him eat out of her bowl too. He has been licking her so they are really good buddies. Also he really likes her food so is eating well. I thought you would want to know that he is doing well. Thanks for taking such good care of him so I could get a great cat.


Farley (now Harley)

Farley (now Harley) Image


Well, I figured it was time for Farley's update, which is long over due!

Dan & I adopted Farley in July of 2011, and changed his name to Harley. The joke is our puppies are the biker gang (Bobby & Harley).

Harley had a fairly sad beginning to life, as most puppies do that ended up being rescued. He made it to the Ponoka Pound. Sadly, no one wanted him and they could no longer keep him. He was on his way to doggy heaven at only 10 months, when the pound realized what a great little guy he was - so they called NASAP to the rescue!

I found him on the NASAP website, and convinced Dan we should take our dog Bobby out and meet him (also a rescue from 2008). Well, Dan & I returned home with two dogs that night.... Needless to say.

Harley has taken some work, as he was scared of people - mainly men when we rescued him. We aren't fully sure what happened to him prior, but know it couldn't have been good from how terrified he was of men and teenage boys.

He hated being in the dark, and more so if you came out of a dark room - he would start barking and cower.

Guess what thou! With lots of love and patients he's confident and a wonderfully well adjusted guy. He loves people, kids, cats, horses, rabbits and most of all chasing birds !

Strangely... Harley also loves watching TV. His favorites would be, the Telus commercials, Hockey, Soccer and cartoons.

He often tries to bite the puck or hockey players - which keeps him entertained for hours. Needless to say - he's pretty happy about the playoffs !

Bobby taught Harley that not all humans are bad, and Harley is now a full time lap dog. Even at his size, he is convinced he belongs on anyone's lap for a snuggle. Harley still questions teenage boys on skateboards a bit, but knows he's safe and is far more relaxed around them.

I attached a few photos of them together. Harley has the long black fur and a white chest. (It's fairly evident, they are two peas in a pod)...

There isn't a day that goes by, I'm not thankful you rescued him. He's such a big part of our family and I couldn't imagine not having him around.

Besides, who would keep my feet warm at night if I didn't have my little Harley-Farley??

Kind regards,


Sicily (now Lucy)

Sicily (now Lucy) Image

Hi there - I adopted Sicily (who I renamed Lucy) and I just wanted to touch base and let you know how things are going. Things are going very well. We had a bit of a misstep at the beginning (totally my fault) but with guidance from her foster mom for me Lucy is coming along really well. She is very shy and timid but she is getting better day by day. She is very friendly with me and talkative. She likes to snuggle on my lap and she has a great purr. She is very well behaved. She is slowly gaining confidence in the remainder of the house - right now she is still happy having her own room (with food/water and litterbox) - she likes to sleep in the closet of the spare room but she does venture out to explore and hang out as she feels comfortable. She is a really sweet cat.




Maude Image

Maude is such a sweet cat and we love having her in her family. Thanks so much for taking care of her before adoption!


Sookie Image

Sookie went on her first camping trip with us May long weekend and we are pretty sure she had a great time. She spent most of her day hiking the trails and chasing squirrels; and with her colors, she camouflaged really well in the bushes. After a long day outside, Sookie would be ready for bed and would climb into the camper at the same time the kids went in....too tired to sit out by the fire with us! She has already gained quite a few pounds and seems to be very happy here....and so are we.
