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!

Hello! We adopted King last August. As you can see he is right at home and his best friend is our cat, Sappho. It took him awhile to overcome some separation anxiety. A chewed up couch and ottoman, door frame and bannister, but he got over it and we

Sophie (Snowflake)

Look at me now! Sophie (Snowflake) is living the good life in Brampton, Ontario. A giant goofball, professional back-talker and all around diva... she is loved and spoiled beyond measure by her humans and big doggie sister. We are ever grateful to SCARS for rescuing her and her siblings
