Hello all my NASAP friends it's me Leo. I miss you all very much, but am very happy to have finally found my forever home.  I was a little scared at first and didn't know what was going on, but I soon found my place and realized that my new home is the bestest place ever!! I have a big back yard to play in, a comfy bed to sleep in every night (not to mention I get to snuggle every night with my puppy Mommy before I fall asleep) and I get to play with my sister Java and our kitty Gordy. I'm not sure about Gordy yet but I'm sure we will become very good friends soon.  I'm getting practice with learning to walk on a leash with out pulling so much. I even have a job!! Java and I get to go to a dog grooming school once a month so the students can practice their grooming skills. It's really fun and I get lots of pets and attention from everyone. I want to say thank you to everyone at NASAP for helping me find my forever home. The people who came and got me from the pound, my foster mom, all the volunteers who worked so hard to find a good home for me, every single one of you will always have a special place in my heart!

Hi, I figured that I would give everyone an update on how I am doing. I have been with my new mom and dad for a little over a week now. Still poking my head around everywhere trying to find out what is in all of these corners. My new older sisters are not hissing and me anymore and even come up to me a give me kisses. One of them even lets me share the couch with her. It took me a bit, but I finally figured out that my brother really isn’t a cat but something mom calls a rabbit. I tried his food once cause he was chomping on it really fast but it was gross. I still haven’t caught up to this wild red dot. I try so hard for hours on end but I can’t seem to catch it. I have also found out that out our front window, mom put a bird feeder. The birds come and fly really close, but I still can’t get them. My mom says that they have to fatten me up cause I was so skinny when they brought me home. I keep trying to eat all the food when it is dinner time but my sisters won’t let me have it all. So I am doing great! I love snuggling with my new dad cause he is so warm! Thanks so much for all the care NASAP gave me before I was adopted!


Rosie Image

We adopted Rosie from NASAP 6 years ago and are happy to see that her wonderful foster family is still involved and raising perfect puppies for lucky families-to-be. Rosie is a very sweet, funny and intelligent border collie who keeps me active in the river valley of Edmonton for about 2 hours every day! She has travelled all around Canada and loves camping. She also likes to sing, bike and swim with me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. Her constant, devoted little soul has brought me more joy than I ever expected. I can't imagine what life was like before she arrived. Thank you NASAP and Laura for all the wonderful work you do, and all the lives you have enriched over the years!


Flynn (formerly Curly) and Pyke (formerly Reggie)

We adopted Flynn (Curly) the beginning of August this year and love him like crazy.  He and Pyke (a NASAP pup we adopted in 2004 who was called Reggie) have become good buddies and they make us laugh so much when they play.  Flynn is very persistent, he is a terrier after all, and Pyke is a patient old man who lets Flynn know when he has pushed too far.  Flynn follows Pyke everywhere and does whatever he does so potty training has been a breeze.   He has been camping twice and has made a good friend with our 4 year old niece who says he is just her size!  Mary Jane was a great foster mom and we are so grateful to her for taking such good care of him.
Thanks NASAP for our two great dogs, they make our family complete.

Hi Donna,
Dorian (now called Rowan) is doing wonderful. He is healthy (had recent vet trip), happy and has certainly found a place in the hearts of all family members.

Levi aka Jager is doing great.  He is so big and very happy.  He plays non stop and thinks my son is one of his brothers (a bit of a power struggle lol!!!). He is extremely loved by all  of us including our Weimeraner Neo.  They are the best of friends. His Neuter appointment is on Aug 13. We are grateful for all the good work your organization does and we thank you for this wonderful gift.  He is amazing!

Thank you,

I attach a few pictures so you can see yourselfs.

Poppy Image


Just a short note to let you know that the dog our family adopted in December 2011, Poppy, is doing well.  She has adjusted well to her new home and enjoys going for walks, playing frisbee, and snuggling with our kids for story time.  She has become much better at riding in the van and being crated in the home when needed.  She continues to get along well with our guinea pig, and has made friends with many of the neighbours.  Many thanks to Lena for her assistance and patience in the adoption process.  We are glad that we found the right dog for our family, and (we think) Poppy is glad that she found the right family to love her.
