Please send your happy tails of NASAP animals to


Pepper Image

We've had Pepper for 8 weeks now and she has brought so much happiness to us. Today she graduated from her Beginner Training Class and we signed up for Intermediate. Yesterday she had her first trip to an off-leash park and she loved it. If we can get her to stop barking at every dog she sees and noise at the door we'll all be a little happier, but other than that she is the perfect companion. Our extended family loves her as much as we do. She is at home in all their houses and is happy to spend time with any of them. Thanks to everyone at NASAP for your program and for letting Pepper move into our home.

TJ Image

Hi Mary.  Another little update for you on how Winston (formerly TJ) is doing.  He has settled into our home beautifully.  He is a happy little guy who always has a waggy tail and a kiss ready.  He loves car rides, has come to love his jackets and sweaters as he knows that means he's going for a walk, loves sitting in the laundry basket and lying on pillows.  He is a climber (like a kitty!) and a digger ... tries to hide his bones in the plants.   Keeps us laughing all the time.  He has lots of energy and can really rip around the yard!   Still shy with strangers (especially men) but licks anyone when they scoop him up or pet him.    What did we ever do without him!

Kingsley (formerly Dancer)

We adopted Kingsley (formerly Dancer) at the beginning of December.  He is the best Christmas present we ever could have hoped for!  He was very quiet and well-behaved for the first little while he had him, except for showing a little separation anxiety in his crate when we left him alone.  This cleared up within a week of him learning the routine.  He now runs into his crate when he sees his frozen peanut butter Kong and knows that we’re always coming back!  His true personality is really starting to shine through.  He only barks when he needs to and loves to go for walks.  Kingsley is a master-toy-destroyer, but somehow he just knows he’s only allowed to chew on dog toys.  He’s so happy to greet that he sometimes forgets he’s not supposed to jump up.  He wants nothing more than to sit on the couch next to you, often laying his head right in the crook of your neck. While not snuggling, he’s playing with his fur-brother Santino the enthusiastic Boston Terrier (and luckily, Kingsley is patient enough to put up with his brother’s larger-than-life personality).  Unlike the slimy face-baths that Santino delivers, Kingsley gives us sweet little delicate kisses right on our noses or lips.  He’s been really easy to train because he wants nothing more than to please you. We had sort out a couple of minor health issues when Kingsley first came home, but he’s more than 100% healthy now and has even gained about 5 pounds (which his skinny frame desperately needed) and a little bit of height.  Kingsley is so quiet and well behaved that we sometimes forget to take him out to pee and he doesn’t yet know how to tell us he wants to go outside.  He’s afraid of some men and dogs that are larger than him, but we’re working on socialization and signing up for puppy school soon – hopefully this will help him build his confidence with men and larger dogs.  I update Kingsley’s progress often on my blog, and I post lots of pictures and stories:  All in all, we couldn’t have found a more perfect dog to fit right into our family.  Everyone who meets him thinks he’s a wonderful and sweet boy, and we couldn’t agree more.  Thank you, NASAP, for bringing Kingsley into our lives – we love him so much!

Hello to everyone at NASAP! I just wanted to thank everyone for taking such good care of me before I was adopted on Dec 15/07. I love my new home! I had no trouble settling in when I got here. My new brother Milo, however wasn't too sure if he liked me at first. I had to let him believe that he is still king of the castle. After a few days we became best buddies! My new mom even has my favorite furry mice here! I can't let on that I totally love it here but I think she knows because I always sneak up to her when she is sleeping and give her kisses. Don't tell anyone though, I gotta keep my cool cat status! I'm very happy in my forever home! Thanks for everything!


Molly Image

Hello everybody!
Just wanted to give you an update on Molly who we adopted on May 19th. She has been a really good dog. My 
daughter trained Molly herself and she has turned out to be a great dog. She goes for walks with her big brother Meeko.  She loves to chase the cats when they are outside. Molly loves to wrestle people alot and a few times she ran away but she has grown out of that and wherever she is, Meeko is there.! Like one time she was going to the vet and Meeko wanted to go to so he jumped into the car. She had a pink and black nose but she has now grown out of that and also had those adorable white socks  but she hasn't grown out of those. Some of the tricks she has learned are shake a paw, high five, sit, lay down, jump and play dead. Molly also enjoys to swim and have belly rubs. And so does her big brother Meeko.

Bye for now! Wynn Bileski and Family


Hype Image

Just thought I would send you a couple of pics of Red, Diesel and Hype so you could see how the boys are doing. They have all learned to live together as a little doggy family and even the cat has made her way into the clique. I am not sure that we could even imagine our life without Hypie anymore J 


Marlie Image

Leeanne FROM NASAP named me and I just loved it and want to keep it. I had a rough start at the beginning of my life so at least one thing (like my name) should be the same. I now have a momma named Jessie. She is FROM the SPCA and is 10 yrs old. She takes really good care of me. She has potty trained me and cleans my face for me when it gets dirty. I try to play with her alot, but most the time she likes to sleep, so thats when I play with the kids Zach 7, and Brady 4. And they tucker me out!!! I finally have a home forever and ever. Love Marlie.

Keira (formerly Ariel)

Keira (formerly Ariel) Image

We adopted Keira (formerly Ariel) last April.  She is our 3rd rescue dog. One of the main reasons we adopted her was our oldest dog, Morgan, was having some health issues and we did not want to leave our other dog, Sasha, without a companion.  Unfortunately Morgan passed away last August.  Keira and Sasha (also a rescue from NASAP), have since developed a tremendous bond.  They spend hours playing and chasing each other.  Keira has been to puppy socialization class and is doing well at learning the game of flyball with the Muttniks Flyball Club.  She is now going back and forth over all four jumps and has started working on her box turn.  Keira is still very shy around new people and is cautious when meeting new dogs.  The best things about her are that while very much a puppy she has gotten into very little puppy trouble and she is just the cutest dog ever.  Where ever we take her, we get comments from people about how pretty she is.  So even if the dog sports thing doesn't work out, she can just go on being cute
