Rufus Image

Couldn't ask for a better dog!! We adopted Rufus in 2003. He's been awesome with other dogs we have fostered & taken care of. He's 9 yrs old and still sweet as ever. So loving & affectionate with most everyone he encounters! He's been a blessing to our family. We've thought of adopting again but a relative gave us a Min Pin pup. They are best of buddies !! Maybe one day we'll add 1 more to our family !! Time will tell  :-)


Lucy Image

Dear Friends at NASAP,

It has been two months now since I've brought Lucy home (just before Christmas) and she has seamlessly fit into our lives out here at the lake. Every morning we go for an 8 km run (I cross-country ski) on the 220 acres of bush just behind our cabin and it is such a joy to watch her run and leap and dig for mice in the deep snow. She is so confident and loves following the deer and moose and coyote trails while always staying in sight. I work from home and take Lucy with me on all of my errands. She is so relaxed and easy in the truck and seems to love 'car rides'.

She does her share of work around here. She is in charge of chasing away the deer, rabbits and the mice (all beautiful, gentle creatures until they eat your entire garden in 10 minutes flat!). One of her favorite things to do is sit in the sunshine on the deck and watch the world go by.

Soon we will be attending Obedience classes together in order to give Lucy more opportunities to socialize with other dogs. (We are quite isolated out here). She is friendly with other people, but with other dogs I have noticed that she can either be shy and afraid (and runs away), or once she is more comfortable she can be a little too aggressive in her play. Soon we'll have plenty of opportunities to practice greeting other dogs, and if we get along great with a few, maybe even schedule some supervised playtimes. Other than that, Lucy already knows her basic commands and she is always learning new things. She's very clever!

Lucy is excellent company and has really enriched our lives. She is loving and so easy to live with. She is a kindred spirit and we are looking forward to enjoying many years with our new family member.

Thank you NASAP and Jaclyn (foster mom) for helping to give this incredibly special girl another chance.

Black Jack

Black Jack Image

A week ago today we adopted Jack and we just love him! He's the cutest little cat. When we brought him home our other cat Milo didn't know what to think of him. It took about 2 days before they became friends. Now they sleep together and play together all the time. It's very cute. Jack loves to sit on your lap and be snuggled. He also loves to play with his little mouse. Milo gets a little annoyed because Jack steals his toys. Lol. Thank you for another amazing cat!!!!

Muffin Image

Two years ago we got our Muffin from NASAP and we cannot believe how much she has impacted our lives! She is a Golden Retriever Corgi cross who just basically looks like a golden retriever with her legs chopped in half!We have an older dog (who is now 11) and Muffin through her puppy antics and silly demeanor has helped transform our lovely Mack into a playful 11 year old puppy! We will forever be grateful to all the foster families and the NASAP organization for bringing Muffin into our lives. Her favorite things to do are go to the off leash park, catch frisbees, and wrestling with her best pal Mack! She also loves to  cuddle Smile

Thank you so much again for the wonderful addition to our family!!

Sam, Andy, Lori, Mack and Muffin!


Duncan Image

I would like to give a quick update on Duncan. He is doing well and has settled in nicely. He is a really great dog and we are so glad to have him. Duncan can now go up and down stairs and runs along at quite a pace. He seems to be completely adjusted to having only three legs. Duncan gets along well with our other dog Kamir and the two are now friends. Thanks for two fantastic dogs.


Durry Image

Hi, We adopted Durry almost 1 year ago and she has turned out to be a great dog! Our 3 yr old daughter and her are best friends! We weren't a huge fan of her name when we adopted her, we actually wanted to change it to Grace, for the fact she was so clumsy, but Brooklyn, our daughter, actually called her "dirty" as she was only 2 yrs old then... So we kept her name :) She is amazing with other dogs and loves the off leash park! We've recently enrolled her in doggie daycare and she seems to enjoy that as well! Thanks so much!
Tammy, Rick & Brooklyn


Hutch Image

Just an update on Hutch.  What a wonderful little character.    He laid in my arms for a chest rub just like a baby!    He is almost as spoiled as Taz - he is such a great dog, with a feisty little character.     We will keep you posted.
