Othello Image

Othello is doing awesome! The little man made himself right at home from day one! He loves playing with his big brother Bart! We changed his name to Jack and he certainly knows it! He is such a cuddly furry baby I'm so glad I found this little addition to our family!

Beau (formerly Barbeau)

I would like to let you know that we adopted Barbeau beginning of Sept and have now changed his name to just Beau.  He is simply adorable and very handsome and loves having a family.  He is extremely playful and is a joy to have. He loves to sit in our kitchen window and watch the squirrels and birds at our feeder.  He loves all the attention he gets daily.  We are very happy to have this new family member.  Thank you nasap.

Chili Image

Deimos aka Chile on the left, adopted from NASAP early 2013, and his new husky brother bandit on the right. Just wanted to let you know Deimos has been such a great fit to our family. He is so smart and beautiful. We have so much fun taking him for walks and he is a great listener too, even though he is only 8 months now. He is very happy with us and we are very happy with him :) Thank you!


Benji Image

Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to adopt Benji.  We absolutely adore him.  We've only had him for three days now but he has settled right in and is enjoying his new toys and many many snuggles.  Thank you NASAP and foster dad Brian. Kristina, Brent & Kayley


Socks Image

We adopted Socks 5 years ago.  She is truly the best dog we could ask for.  She loves the water and playing with her fur sister Nyla.  We were warned by her Foster family that she is a cuddler and will try and sleep with you.  Boy were they right.  Socks loves to cuddle after long walks and she just melts into you like a giant teddy bear.  We recently welcomed a baby into our family and she has been the best fur sister.  Quite often our son will use a sleeping Socks as a table to line up his toys or to play dinosaurs. She LOVES the extra attention.  Thank you again to her foster family and to NASAP for Socks.

Nemo (aka Frankie)

Nemo (aka Frankie) Image

We adopted Nemo (aka Frankie) in the summer of 2004 and have never looked back. He was very young - 7 weeks old - and fit nicely into my hand.  From the time he arrived... he seemed to know what to do as if he were pre-programmed for going out, sitting at his bowl and asking for his meal, or giving us the look that said, "do you want to play?" With two other dogs in the family - Nemo has provided great leadership, a touch of discipline when needed, and is always looking out for their safety. He is one of the best dogs we've ever had - thank you!


Atticus Image

We adopted “Attie” right after our 16 year old Shih Tzu passed away. We thought that our Japanese Chin would be severely depressed, having never being an “only child”. I myself wasn’t sure I was ready, but as soon as my husband saw Atticus he knew he had to have him because he reminded him so much of his sisters dog. I’m very grateful my husband talked me into adopting Attie. He has been such a blessing for us and our other baby Terry-bull. Terry got his energy back and was happy to play and have someone to be buddies with, they have bonded so well. As the pictures show, they are always by each others side. We were told when adopting Attie that he will try and escape from the yard and to always keep and eye on him.  After just a few months we can walk in and out of the yard and he stays by our side, and once while on a walk he actually got out of his harness while I was tending to my other dog and he didn’t leave my side.  When he follows or goes anywhere he will always come  when he’s called. I can’t believe anyone with a heart could ever give this angel up, some people just don’t get what treasures they have.  I makes me sick to know what I do about my Attie’s past and it just makes him that much more special that he can still be so happy and loving. We just can’t imagine life without him now.

Suzy (formerly Chewy)

Suzy (formerly Chewy) Image

Just wanting to update you on Suzy (formerly Chewy).  We adopted Suzy in May 2012.  We had been looking for a female companion for our male dog since he was very high energy.  Suzy seemed fascinated by Teddy right away and today they are best buddies and inseparable.  They do everything together.  Right after I got Suzy, I was told she had sliding kneecaps and would require surgery on both knees.  One knee was done last fall and the other one this spring.  Suzy has recovered well from both surgeries.  She also had to have a molar removed that was broken right off at the root.  I think that Suzy was named Chewy because she hates being confined in a kennel and chews that bars.  This can be a problem for us when we go on holiday, but kenneling her with Teddy serves to calm her down and it does not happen very often.  She is very loyal and has a sweet personality and loves our morning walks. Sometimes she plays the little mother and puts Teddy in line when he becomes over exuberant.  Suzy and Teddy are a perfect pair and we are very glad that she came to us.  Thank you for all the work you do in rescuing and rehoming animals in need.
