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 wanted to share our Thelma update with you for the Christmas season. Thank you SO much for finding her and taking care of her before she joined our family. We can't imagine our life without her. Thelma is an absolute joy to everyone she meets.

Fiona (formerly Cuddles)

Hi SCARS! I brought Cuddles (now Fiona) home with me on Halloween. She was shy for a couple of days but very quickly became the most snuggly, loving, chatty friend a guy could ask for! She's such a sweetheart and I'm so happy I found her.  She is

Hi all, this is Gracie (formerly known as Daisy Doodle) with an update on the last year and a half. I came to SCARS after being found in a rural area in pretty ruff shape and then having surgery on a diaphragmatic hernia at Guardian (thank you to

Hi SCARS, We were told Walker was going to be a big boy, but what you didn’t say was that he was going to be a gentle giant. Thank you for giving us the chance to watch this amazing dog grow and meld with our family. He has


Clementine (formerly Rascal)

Hello SCARS. Earlier this year we adopted Clementine (formerly Rascal) and we wanted to provide you with an update. We had never lived with a cat before. We both come from committed dog families, and one of us (Michael) was somewhat apprehensive about bringing a cat into our
