It is Kitten season and our foster cat Persephone was found to be pregnant late in her pregnancy. But we also found a massive hernia putting pressure on her lungs. We were very worried she would have severe difficulty breathing, especially if she went into labour! After many consultations with vets and specialists on how best to save mom and babies. We decided on an urgent c section to deliver the babies as close to full term as possible and repair the hernia immediately.
Persephone is a strong mama and those kittens had a different plan - she went into labour 1 hour before her surgery was scheduled! She was a rockstar and delivered 3 healthy and strong kittens and 1 still born under the supervision of Guardian emergency vet. She was discharged home to be monitored but. that evening took a turn for the worst. She required emergency surgery as her hernia split open twice its original size! After surgery she had complications too, fever and lack of appetite required further monitoring to make sure she was strong enough to take care of herself and 3 new borns.
She has been at Guardian emergency vet for several days between the consults, births, surgeries and post op complications.
Rescue is never easy and our vets are phenomenal in helping us and go above and beyond but we cannot say no to medical emergencies and medical care! These animals need our help and we need yours to keep them healthy and thriving. Persephone and her crew are just 4 of our foster animals and the vet bills keep mounting. NASAP will always provide the best medical care and ensuring all medical conditions are treated to the best of our vets abilities. We strive for the best quality of life and full vet care is essential to that. Thank you for your support to ensure every animal has the best life possible!!

Our Mission Statement:
NASAP exists for 2 basic reasons:
• To provide a solution to the problem of homeless and unwanted animals in the Northern Alberta area, thus working towards the long term goal of reducing the practice of euthanasia as a means of controlling the pet population.
• To assist wherever possible in the education of the public and government bodies regarding the importance of spaying and neutering household pets as a main ingredient in the progress towards the goal of controlling the pet population.
NASAP leases a small commercial space for storage only. We do not have any kind of a kennelling facility. Instead we use a network of private foster homes to care for our animals while we search for suitable permanent homes for them. Our foster homes treat these animals as their own pets and make them part of the family and the household routine. The animals are given training in basic house manners, and they are provided with any required medical treatments while they are in foster care. Our foster families get to know these pets while they are caring for them. They become knowledgeable about such things as whether or not a pet is good with other animals and children, if the pet would be happiest in a rural or urban home, and if the pet has any fears or behavioural traits which a new home should be aware of.
Many of the animals who come into our care are surrendered by local area pounds. These animals are considered adoptable, but without the aid of a rescue group such as NASAP, they would likely face euthanasia. Some animals are personally surrendered by people who find themselves in circumstances where they are unable to keep a beloved pet.
