Evie Image

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would send you an update on Evie!

I adopted Evie just a month ago, but it seems like it has been much longer than that. I cannot tell you what a joy she has been! She gets along fabulously with our other black lab; they spend their days running, playing, and napping in front of the fire place. Evie learned crate training very quickly (less than a weekend), has learned many new tricks and is working on her recall. She's just been an absolute delight. She adores working at the farm with me, going for car rides, and playing at the dog park. But perhaps one of the best moments with her was three days after I adopted her, my stepbrother broke his leg badly. He was put bed rest and was going a bit stir crazy. Evie took it upon herself to comfort him by curling up and cuddling him in his recovery bed. Perhaps she has a future as a therapy dog!

Once again, thank you for the wonderful opportunity for me to find such an amazing friend!

Mandy (formerly Callie) & Rory (formerly Matthew)

Mandy (formerly Callie) & Rory (formerly Matthew) Image

We wanted to let everyone know how our NASAP kitties Mandy (formerly Callie) and Rory (formerly Matthew) are doing.  They have become fast friends and spend many hours together playing and then napping.  We didn’t realize when we first brought Mandy home how charming she would be!  She is also VERY playful and energetic.  She keeps Rory on his toes!  She also likes to dig in plants, which we are trying (so far unsuccessfully) to convince her not to do!  She is a purr machine and REALLY enjoys attention.  They both really enjoy being brushed – of course Mandy tries to play with the comb as well J.  They have become best friends. They recently got a cat tree and love to spend time playing and sleeping together on it.  Thank you NASAP and a special thank you to Rachael for doing such a great job socializing the kitten litter that Mandy came from.  We are so happy with both our new family members!

Finley (formerly Tywin)

Finley (formerly Tywin) Image

Finley is trouble with a capital "T" but we love him to pieces!  He steals things from my daughters room, he unravels all the toilet paper, he's extremely nosy and he torments his older brother Junior but he makes us laugh every single day.

He got fixed about 3 weeks ago and is really doing well, he's my daughters favorite photography model and he seems to enjoy it too.  He uses his litter boxes faithfully (he even likes playing in them), he eats extremely well and he spreads himself around at night, sleeping in either my and my husband's bed or with either of the kids.  You're never alone in this house because he's always close behind wondering if something fun will happen.  He's been an absolute joy and we are so happy we found him.

I've sent a picture that my daughter took of him, he's hanging out in the bathroom waiting for us to turn on the tap so he can play with the stream of water. I just had to send you this too. I installed a new toilet today and Finley had a great time "helping" me! 

Take care and thanks again for asking about Finley!


Alina Image

Alina is doing great , we are enjoying  and loving her so much. She's settled right in from day one. She's taken over the place, when we wake up in the morning there's cat toys spread out all over the living room.  I've attached a few picture.  She enjoys her cat tree and has never scratch our furniture. She loves to hang out with my husband in the garage, and loves her cuddle time with myself.  

Thank you again for Alina she really brings us some much joy


Perdita (now Pi)

Perdita (now Pi) Image

Pi (formerly and briefly known as Perdita) was with me for about ten months before I became a foster failure. In those ten months she was with me throughout a move, health problems, family tragedy, and my graduation from university. I couldn't stand to let her go.

Pi was a very timid cat when she came to me, she hid from everyone and everything for weeks. Now she makes sure you're aware of her by sitting right on your chest or head, and purring loudly. She was the annoyed foster sister to many cats, begrudgingly taking them in and showing them the ropes (or more accurately, the cat tree).

She can't meow for some reason, though not for lack of trying. She'll make squeaking noises non-stop when she's excited, and can get quite loud if she wants! Pi also likes to "hoard" things, once we've found her hiding place we always know where to find a pen (since she's taken them all).

Pi had some allergies and was a bit overweight. We've switched her to raw food and the years have melted away, she looks and acts like a kitten! We just had her at the vet for a check up and he said she's the picture of feline health :-)

Thank you NASAP, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to find my best friend. I couldn't imagine life without her, and I promise you, she's the most spoiled cat on the block. Hopefully she'll be getting some more fur siblings to play with soon!

Luna Image


Me and Reid CANNOT believe how well behaved this pup is. She is exactly what any person would want in a dog and more and can't imagine who would ever give her away. She has all of her manners, walks well, nice at the dog park, comes when called, sits and plays dead, and has great manners around our resident cats (Sadie a NASAP rescue, and Link a SAFE rescue). We are so lucky to have her.

We've already taken her to the mountains and had no hesitation in introducing her to friends of our. She loves everyone and is so sweet to those she meets. She loves to run back and forth between me and Reid when we call her name and can't resist chasing chunks of snow we throw for her.

We absolutely love her and are so thankful that you came in and saved her (and Maya) from being euthanized. You guys do amazing work and we can't say how appreciative we are. We are so happy to have the kindest ball of fur come into our lives.



Jet Image

Jet has found his forever home. His day starts with a 5:45 a.m. jog with 5 runners. He is becoming familiar with the route. With a slight wag of the tail, he proudly holds his head high as he leads these ladies on their run. They have graciously welcomed Jet to the club, and Jet is very grateful for their patience and acceptance.

In addition to the parents, the young adults in Jet's new home love to take him for afternoon walks or romps in his back yard. Jet thinks he is a kangaroo as he bounces in the snow and then pounces to find one of his new squeaky toys. They think it is quite funny with Jet's butt wagging in the air as he pushes his nose through the snow. He's such a big goofball!

Jet is a quick learner as he settles into his new surroundings: He wants to please his new family. Jet is a good looking boy with a loving and playful heart. He will love summer camp when he arrives for two months on Kalamalka Lake in the Okanagan. But that's another story......


Cooper Image

Cooper is doing great! We are loving having 2 dogs in our house. He gets along so good with our other heeler Yoda. They could play together for hours outside or in the basement. We had lots of children around our house at Christmas and we were so impressed with how gentle and well behaved Cooper was around them. He certainly has filled out a bit since we got him and is looking way healthier. He has come a long way in training. He will sit and stay when the front door is open, instead of making a break for it like he used to. Yoda is definitely the pack leader but Cooper is happy to follow him around and to have a playmate. They both love to sit on our front window and bark at everyone who goes by. He still has some bad habits like jumping up on people and the counter but we're slowly working on them. I attached some photos also. Thanks for checking in. We are so happy with how Cooper is doing.
