Hey Everyone!

It’s time that I update everyone on how I’m doing. I have been doing so well in my foster home. I am just about done with being that super shy girl I was when I first came here. Foster mom has yet to hear me bark, but vocalizing and talking are no problem for me. I absolutely love my people! I love being pet and laying close to you. And I love to play fetch, but it has to be with my favourite bouncy ball.

Now for the not so great news – It has been found that I am in the very early stages of having kidney disease. The good news- my vet says that this has been detected very, very early. Chances are, I will continue to live my healthy, active life. I just need some special food to maintain my health. So my future is a bit uncertain, but whose isn’t?! I still have a lot to offer to the right home. Just ask my foster parents, they love to brag about how sweet, funny and quirky I am, not to mention stunningly beautiful! If you have room in your home and your heart for me, click the button below. I promise I will return the love by the thousands!




Jan 27: Many of our stories start with “I was found up north…” Well I was waaay up north. About 8 hrs north of Edmonton to be exact. I’m a small female, was not spayed and was living on a rope. Someone left me tied up and forgot about me (yea, not so good!) Lucky for me I broke free and found the nearest school. A man working at the school noticed me and saw all of my bones showing under my fluffy coat. (Ok it wasn’t very “fluffy” at this point, more like full of fleas, but you get the picture..I was very hungry!) He took me home to his family and they took wonderful care of me. I was very appreciative! And in just a short amount of time I am feeling and looking much better. They contacted SCARS and brought me to Athabasca where I am now settling into my brand new foster home.
Everything is SO new to me. I am a very shy, timid little girl. I don’t necessarily love people yet but I do like them. Foster mom says I have the sweetest smile. I do enjoy pets but I am not the begging type (yet!) I look like a husky mix but I’m about half the size. I am very well behaved in the house and get along fine with the resident male and female dog here. I’m fine in a crate. I learned what a leash was today and I am already leash walking like a pro! Guessing I am just over 1 yr old. I will go for my very first vet visit soon. Will let everyone know how I progress here!
It’s been a long day. I am going to enjoy a nice nap in the warmth of a safe, loving home!

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we will deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
