Pumpkin Image

Hello All,
I received a letter today asking how Pumpkin is. Well, where do you want me start! LOL. She is doing fabulous and has worked her way into our hearts like no other cat has done. She has her own spot on the beds where she sleeps. Yes, I did say beds. LOL. She is usually up at 0600 hrs and running around the house like a mad hatter with all her toys, then after that she is back to her scratch post sound a sleep again. {Talk about a cats life!}. Right now she is walking around the house talking to Monika my wife which she does on a regular bases. You can hold a continuous conversation with her like a regular person. Come to think about it probably more of an intelligent conversation than a person!!! Sparky and Pumpkin usually sleep together on the beds or on the futon. Where ever Sparky is, Pumpkin is not far behind. They are like husband and wife. She is always grunting when ever they are walking around the house together as if she is talking to Sparky telling him what they should get into next. I must say that she is a VERY happy cat and an absolute joy to have around the house. Pumpkin is one cat who came into our house and made herself right at home with no fuss or muss. Well, I must go and some sleep, I have included some pictures for everyone. I will try to email every once in a while just to update everyone. Take care, and keep up the good work that you are all doing. Paul Salandini
P.S.- The one picture is the Princess in her new bed that we got. The other is Sparky and Pumpkin on the futon and Spray is being camera shy.


Callie Image

Callie is doing very well.  She settled in amazingly fast.  She loves daycare.  She has completed the first levels of obedience and agility, demonstrating her intelligence and willingness to work (especially if treats are involved) at every turn.  She is loved by everyone who meets her.  I barely remember what life was like before she became part of my family.
I attach a few pictures of one of her favourite activities: snow dog angels.
thank you for bringing us together,

Hi Ashley,

Here are some pictures of Elliot and Emma. They have the run of the house but seem to spend most of their time on the gym looking out the window. Emma is the sweet and cuddly one. Elliot only cuddle’s when he wants to sleep, otherwise he just plays.

HI Ashley,
Little Ashlie is doing fantastic & she had the rest of her boosters today, along with a rabies shot. She is now 4.6 lbs & she is bad.....Brian said she is full of hell! She is something, but she makes us laugh & Kuffs just loves her. We love her so much too & can't imagine not having her in our family. Hope things are great with you. Take care & keep in touch.
Kathy, Brian, Kuffs & Ashlie


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)

Moby (Now Molson) Image

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.
