Look at me now!

Please submit your “Look At Me Now” update

If you have adopted an animal from SCARS, please send us a Look at Me Now update. You can provide an update at any time during the life of your pet and more than one is welcome. We sometimes get updates shortly after adoption but we also get them months or even many years later.  All updates are welcome.

Reasons to submit a story

  • Inspire our volunteers. The dogs and cats we rescue live in our homes so our volunteers develop a deep bond with them. Seeing a pet thriving in its forever home is a source of pride and joy for our volunteers. The update you provide gives us the strength to say farewell to a beloved foster at adoption time. Adoption means there is now an opening for the next rescued pet.
  • Encourage others to adopt. When people see how much joy a rescued pet can bring to a family,  it encourages them to adopt. This helps us to reduce the number of unwanted pets in Alberta.

How to submit your story

Please email your story along with one or more images to scars@scarscare.ca. We will add it to this page and share it on our social media sites. Thank you!

Charlie (formerly Yoda)

Hi SCARS. I thought you might want an update on Yoda (now known as Charlie). He's grown to be a very energetic yet still a sleepy head dog. He's a great addition to our family and fits in great! Charlie has grown quite a bit since as you can

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

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.

Gizmo

Hi SCARS, Gizmo joined our family two years ago now. We were hesitant adopting a senior animal, especially because Gizmo had some pre-existing conditions, but I would never change our decision to bring Gizmo into our home. He is quite the character. Every day when I get home, I’m

Banjo

Hi SCARS, First of all we would like to thank those responsible for rescuing our little Banjo. We could not love him more. He is without a doubt the sweetest, cuddliest, most loving little guy. He has been on his first camping trip with us and has been introduced

Sawyer (formally Bali)

Our family is very excited to announce our one year anniversary with our big, rambunctious goof – “Sawyer”!  Sawyer has grown so much over the past year, and we’ve grown right alongside him. When we first spotted Sawyer on the SCARS website, his gorgeous eyes and big silly smile

Violet

Good morning SCARS! I figured today was as good as any to send you a Look At Me Now update on Violet. Today is her 1-year anniversary with us. We picked up Violet in Athabasca from Cathy. We had previously inquired about meeting Violet at the beginning of May.

Max Power

Hi SCARS! We wanted to write to let you know how Max is doing. We adopted him just after Christmas last year and our lives have been so much better every day since! It didn’t take him long to make himself at home with us … the minute we

Yoshi

Hello, Yoshi here! I just wanted to update you about my new parents, they are fabulous. Every day I get to play ball in the park and go for a long walk in the woods. On the weekends we all wake up late and head for a long run
