Buddy 00-0101-D

It is with extreme sadness that we had to say goodbye to the love of
our lives "Buddy" on Tuesday.    We rescued Buddy, a 7 year old lab/
husky mix from NASAP in September of 2002.  So we think he was 14 or
15.  He was such a good, good boy.   I don't  know if you keep track
of the original families who couldn't keep him and if they would like
to know.  He was well loved and spent most of the day on his pillow in
our family room over the past few years.  He loved to go for walks
here at Hastings Lake and for short swims to cool off in the summer
heat.  He rarely barked and was loved by all our friends and neighbors
too.  We will miss his cheerful disposition and snoring furry face so
very much.  Our hearts though broken today, are so grateful he was
part of our home and we were able to love him for such a long time.

Sincerely, Jim and Kelly Daye

Very sad day today.


We finally had to say goodbye to  Socks, our beautiful border collie. I found Socks (then about five years old) ten years ago on NASAP’s rescue website. James, my then oldest border,  was sixteen and the calm in my storm of younger border collies. Socks was described as a mellow gentleman. I twisted my husband’s arm by telling him that Socks would be a perfect “replacement” if anything were to happen to James.


He never was a replacement. He was adored by everyone. Gentle, loving and loved.


He was diagnosed with Cushing’s at the beginning of the summer. Treatment was going to be hard on him and with no guarantees. He was in no pain so we decided to let him enjoy the summer. The last few weeks have been a real struggle for him. I couldn’t bear for him to have to battle through the winter.


We’ll miss him so much.


Can’t thank NASAP enough for the years we shared with Socks.

In May of 2003 we adopted at Rottweiler named Aragorn at the NASAP Pet Adoption Day at PetSmart.  Hooch was aptly renamed Hooch after the movie Turner and Hooch.  When we brought Hooch home he ran into the house like he had always lived there.  We lost Hooch on Monday June 1, 2009 to Liver Disease and possible Tumors.  He was a constant joy to have in our home, a best friend, a good companion and so much more.  He is gone but never forgotten.

The Colonel 01-231-C

The Colonel was a Permanent Care NASAP cat that was found as a stray in 2001. He had badly frostbitten ears when he came into care which is why his ears looked so small and wrinkled up. The Colonel was a very sweet natured boy and has been described most recently as a "creampuff". He got along with the cat-friendly dogs and cat-friendly cats that shared his permanent care home. He was used to being an outdoor/indoor cat and loved to spend a bit of supervised time in the backyard during the spring/summer months. The Colonel was diabetic for the last several years of his life and required two insulin injections a day.  He was at least 12 years old when he had to be humanely euthanized due to complications related to his diabetes. We are extremely grateful to Ann Powell for caring for The Colonel for most of his life and to Les Hicks for looking after him these last few weeks.
