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!

Happy One Year adoption anniversary Mr Jim Lahey! (Formerly Marcus). When he came to us, he was a skinny, silly knot head. How he’s just a silly knot head 😆. Mr. Lahey is full of energy and love equally. He’s either running full speed creating mischief or wanting

Dozer (formerly Cordoba)

Happy 1st Birthday to our Dozer dog (aka Córdoba). He is 70ish pounds of cuddle and love ❤️. He celebrated at camp, one of his favourite places. He had to learn how to be tied up, but he knows he's gotta follow the rules... ha-ha! He really loved

Hi SCARS! I thought I'd give you a little update on my boy. Thanks to you, it’s been five unforgettable years with this guy. In five short years, Cash has moved nine times across three provinces, has charmed everyone he’s met, and has probably eaten about 15lbs of


Buddy Holly (in memory of)

We adopted Buddy Holly this winter as a senior with the intention of giving him the best life we could for however long we would have him. He was one of the sweetest dogs I have met, he always wanted to say hi to everyone even if they

Hi SCARS! I wanted to pass along a much overdue update of my best friend Hammond (formerly Rex). Hamm and I met a little over six years ago at one of your adoption events when he was just a little pup. I knew we were destined for a

Hi SCARS, Last September we adopted our first Rescue pup from you. At the time she was named June. We had just lost our dog to old age and quickly realized that we needed to have a dog in our life. I hopped onto your site and saw

Hi SCARS, I adopted Ollie on July 15, 2017, and I thought people might be interested in seeing how he is doing. Since coming to stay with me, he has gone on mountain adventures, spends his summer wading in his pool, and being the cuddliest boy anyone could
