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!

Hi SCARS, We adopted our cat Ringo from SCARS five years ago on March 28th. While he’s still a very “tough guy” to strangers, he is so very snugly and attached to my kids and I. He also turned into a giant ball of fluff within 6 months

Hi SCARS! Diane and I thought it would be nice to give you an update after one year. Lily has gradually been blossoming. Every month it's like she realizes that she's still here and relaxes a bit more. She has become more active, and is a very engaging



Hi SCARS. Three and a half happy years ago we adopted a puppy, a Husky Shepherd mix, from SCARS. Remi will be four years old this May. I have been quite neglectful in sending pics to our Remi’s foster mom, Julie. We want her to know how much



Hello all! Solstice and I met in December. She was a little scared when we first met, but once she got to her new home, she warmed right up. She has adapted quite well to her new home and now she is a purr monster. Thank you SCARS!!
