Marla Image

Marla is doing great. She is a high energy puppy so we bring her to the dog park almost everyday and she loves it. When she sees all the other dogs she gets so excited. She plays well with other dogs. We live on a acreage so when we're not at the park she has lots of room to run around. However, she started roaming too much and playing/chasing with the neighbours horses too much so we had to put an invisible fence around the yard. The fence is working fantastic. Now she understands where her boundaries are.
Despite being so high energy, in the house she is quiet. She loves to chew on her toys and she has been fairly good at only chewing on her toys. We knew that Marla was going to shed but we didn't realize that she was going to shed that much. Washing the floors/vacuuming the couches has now become a daily routine for us (the owners needed some training too). That was a big adjustment for us. Now that it is winter the shedding has decreased.
We have another dog, named Penelope, she is a Boston Terrier. Penelope has been the queen of the castle for 4 years so the introduction of Marla was a little adjustment for her. Penelope has now gotten use to Marla and they now play together... for the most part. Terriers are stubborn. When they think we are not looking we catch them sleeping together. Therefore, Marla can't be that bad.
Marla makes me and my husband laugh all the time. Despite being a lot of work, we love her and she is a great addition to our home.



Zoe  Image

Zoe has been both a sweet heart and a handful at times.  She likes to go stick her nose in places she shouldn't when there is no supervison as her boredom gets the best of her.  While her curiosity and hunger can get the best of her, the affection she shows to people is like no other, although I can't say the same about how she feels towards some other dogs :)

Both her and our other dog (Bert) are inseparable and get along very well.  It has been very helpful having two dogs, as they can keep each other busy when we feel like laying down.  Attached is a picture of our dogs taking a nap.

We can't imagine our lives without Zoe because it feels like she has been with us forever (even the cat gets along with her!).

Oscar (previously Quincy)

Oscar (previously Quincy) Image

I would just like to give a quick update to let you know how our adoption is going one week in.  Our little guy has settled right in to our family - he began purring when we went to the foster home to collect him and pretty much hasn't stopped since.  Moreover, and most importantly he bonded very quickly with our 16 year old son, and vice versa.  The two are now inseperable! 
Quincy (who we've renamed Oscar) is a wonderful little cat.  he is very even tempered, affectionate, has character and is not phased by much. He's eating well, terrorizing the dog and cuddling like crazy.  He's more than we could have hoped for! 
I would like to say a big thank you to NASAP and Stacey, the foster mom, for taking such good care of our little guy and giving us the priviledge of adopting him into our family.   Considering the start he and his brothers had in their lives, our little one has adjusted amazingly well. 
He has also helped our family heal after the loss of our beloved cat a month ago.    We are still grieving the loss but having a little one to cuddle rounds out the sharp edges just a bit. There is nothing like celebrating a new life!
Thank you again for our kitten.   We are blessed. 
Best Wishes,

J. D.

Many Thanks for bringing J.D. into our lives.

He's a fine dog and has fit into our routine. We're enjoying this extended spell of nice weather with lots of long walks, followed by naps. He even is getting along OK with the resident cat.

People are so impressed that rescue dogs can have such nice personalities and tempermants. Thank you again NASAP and all the foster homes.


Josiah Image

Hello: We have had our orange and white tabby cat Josiah for almost a month, and he is such a wonderful part of our family. He is a big ball of love, and enjoys cuddling with all of us. You can hear his loud purr all through the house. He has adapted well to our family, and we are so thankful to have him. Many thanks to NASAP for their wonderful work, and Josiah's foster mom Sue.

Robertson Image

Two weeks ago we adopted Robertson and we just love him! We didn't know what we were going to name him as we wanted to see what his personality was like. When we were on the computer the name Otis popped into my head. I immediately thought of the movie Milo and Otis and remembered the kitten was orange and very curious. It was the perfect name! Milo loves to cuddle and curl up and sleep with you all night. He is extremely playful but when he crashes he's out like a light! Milo is definitely the king of the house. He's got us all wrapped around his finger or should I say paw. He absolutely loves the mice toys that he got from his foster mother Laura. He has grown tons already and is always ready to eat something. Milo loves to sit at Derek's feet and they always watch TV together. Thank you NASAP and Laura!!!!!

Buster and Rufus

Buster and Rufus Image

Rufus, formally known as Lillian, is the blue and white Australian cattledog fast asleep with her best friend Buster, the Anatolian Shepherd formally known as Buster, watching out for her as always. Rufus is now about two years old and her happiest day was when Buster joined her here about a year ago. Both dogs are from NASAP and they have been the best of friends from the first moment they saw each other and ran off to play. It is hard to think that our family did not include Buster and Rufus at one time. We are off for a walk and will check in some time in the future!
