Charlie Image

Just thought I would update you on our dear Charlie. He is one year old today and we have loved every minute of the past year with him. He was the perfect addition to our family. Thanks for all of the work that you do!

Lincoln Image

Lincoln is Megan's dog, but thankfully, she is sharing him with all of us.  She saved up babysitting money to adopt him through NASAP and we are very proud of her commitment and dedication.   
Lincoln is loyal, friendly, playful, FULL of kisses and absolutely HILARIOUS!   There are so many kids in our house, he is VERY busy keeping track of all of us :)  His tail is ALWAYS wagging and he is absolutely smitten with Megan.  He gazes adoringly up at her eagerly waiting for his next command.  

Moby (Now Molson)

About 3 weeks ago, my youngest daughter and I were at the Petsmart on Calgary Trail picking up treats for our 2 dogs.  We always go looks at the cats and give them warm wishes , even though allergies prevent us from having one ourselves.  This particular day I started flipping through the N.A.S.A.P book and fell in love immediately with the goofiest guy in there! Moby!!  Well, needless to say we really didn't need another dog, so we went on our way.  That weekend we went camping and goofball Moby was still in my brain. We got back, and I went directly to the N.A.S.A.P website to see if he was still available. I really didn't think he would be because he was just so handsome!  We finally got to meet in real life and I really thought "Well, he's probably not that great in person." I was right he was amazing!!  We fell in love right away! I found out that Moby had actually been in foster care for more than 6 months!!

 There is a reason that Molson (that's his new name) needed to be with us, I don't know what it is yet, but I feel it!  We are getting used to his sense of humor (you were right Helena it is weird!), and just loving him to bits! He has a new brother,a golden named Geronimo and a new sister a shih tzu called Zoe. Molson also has 2 human brothers and 2 human sisters!  It feels as though he has always been with us, he is our family now.
  Thank you so much to everyone at NASAP who gives these animals the care they deserve, thank you to Helena, Molson's foster mom, who really did an amazing job of taking care of him and making sure he was adopted by the right forever family!
Love,  The Borgeson Family

Hi Pat!

It's Madisen, I adopted Luka and Teija (the surrendered mom and baby) about 2 months ago now. I thought I, 'we' would give you an update on how they are doing. Both of them are happy, and playful, I have never been more in love withanything in my life! After being here a while they didn't seem to suit their names, so the baby is now Aurora (or roar) and the mom's new name is Roxie. They have made friends with the cat in the suite next door and enjoy talking back and forth. Roar, I have discovered, loves showers. It's the strangest thing. The day I brought her home I couldn't take my eyes off her, so I got in the shower with the door and curtain open so I could see her and the little thing jumped right in with me! Ever since she'll shower with me, sitting on the edge or the side of the tub, she is adoreable. The mom is my buddy for sure, she wont let me leave the room without confirmation on where I'm going. They are in a good home as far as I'm concerned. Thanks so much for taking care of them till they found their way to me.

Penny Image

Penny has been a part of our household for one month now.  She has had her dental surgery and pulled through like a little trooper.  She is a sweet loving little girl and loves her new sister Murphy.  As needed, she has gained a little weight.  She loves playing with all her stuffed toys.  Thank you NASAP for allowing us to have such a sweetheart in our lives!


Kingsley Image

Just wanted to send a more recent picture of Kingsley (formerly Dancer) and give you a little update.  He's been such a dream dog, just far too easy for words!  He graduated from Intermediate Obedience this spring, even though it was clear that he'd never had any obedience training before.  He's just so eager to please that he picked up on everything in the class - our trainer was very impressed!  He's as cuddly as ever, and gets goofier by the day.  You should see him playing by himself, which involves lots of jumping straight up in the air - too funny!  And his confidence around other, larger dogs has grown so much, that we're actually able to take him to the off-leash park without him vomiting from nerves.  We've had him around many children lately, and he's ever so gentle and happy to be around them.   My favorite thing about him is when he settles down for the night and lets out a huge-manly-growly sigh from sheer happiness.  He's been the perfect addition and we couldn't ask for a more perfect dog for us. 
I thank NASAP everyday at some point for bringing him home to us... Natasha


Shiloh Image

Shiloh has been doing really awesome - she does still have accidents in the house and she loves to chew but slowly we are working on it.  She has become one of the family.    Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have Shiloh as part of our family

Dear Pat,

We've had a fantastic few days with Emily (formerly known as Tiny) and Taylor. They get along fabulously with each other - love to play with, groom, and sleep together - and really seem to adore us, too. Taylor purrs and cuddles almost as much as Emily! They are both very, very sweet, and we now can hardly imagine our lives without them. We truly couldn't be happier. They are loving and gentle with us and get along so well together, too. Thanks so much for your help and patience.
