Brie had been hit by a car

I'm Brie. You might be wondering what a sweet border collie like me is doing in need of rescue. Well, let me tell you! Rescues come to SCARS from all walks of life and all communities. I am an 8-month-old female and a very busy girl. So busy, in

Sydney (formerly Garcia)

Hi SCARS! This is Sydney (formerly known as "Garcia," AKA one of the Criminal Minds puppies)! Syd is five months old now and incredibly saucy. She is 100% the queen of the castle. She's a little weary of strangers and tends to hide behind mum most of the time.

Sasha

Hi SCARS! Almost three years ago we adopted Sasha II from you guys (now just goes by Sasha). She had been returned several times before we adopted her due to her excessive energy and wandering tendencies. She's still a handful but she's settled in nicely. I've never met a

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. The same is true for dogs. Sometimes bad things happen to good dogs. In my case, no truer words could be spoken. My name is Maybelline and I am a young dog with an old soul. Until now I have lived in

Casper

When I adopted Casper, she was shy and scared of everything! Now, 7 years later, she has changed and grown so much! She still does new things that surprise me and whoever said an old dog can’t learn new tricks was wrong! It’s been so rewarding having her around.

Snowball had been hit by a car

I'm snowball - and I'm feeling super lucky! Last week I had an accident, where I was hit by a car and broke my leg. It was really scary, and it hurt so much! Thankfully, someone quickly contacted SCARS and they sent a lovely lady to come help me.

Zac

Amputations are not uncommon for rescue groups to deal with, but mine is hitting the SCARS people a little harder than most. I’m Zac. I’m an older guy who has had a rough life. But I’m a survivor. In my past, there was a mishap involving me and an
