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!

Kepler (formerly Hazel)

Hi SCARS! I love seeing all of the "Look at Me Now" updates so I thought I would send you one of my own. A year ago we adopted Kepler (formerly Hazel). And it was one of the best decisions we ever made. She matches our life perfectly. When

Hi SCARS, we adopted Dixie back in January 2017, and decided to keep her name the same, although she has other names also such as Diggers, Digger Dog. She is a huge part of our family and loves to be involved in whatever we are doing. She can be

Hi SCARS! I adopted Douglas as a puppy from you in 2010. When I was reading the heartbreaking story of him and his siblings being left in a cardboard box on a highway, it just broke my heart. I knew I just had to adopt one of them. I thought the name Douglas

Hey SCARS, It’ll be a month on August 9th since we officially adopted our beloved Naya. She has acclimatized extremely well. She loves playing in the back yard and going on our multiple daily walks.  The one thing she gets sad about is that we don’t let her chase

Merlin and Lola (formerly Taga)

We started as a foster home with SCARS in 2014 and were fortunate enough to foster 12 beautiful dogs. It was truly a rewarding and enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend fostering to anyone contemplating it. In 2015, we adopted our eighth foster dog, not because we didn’t

Wyatt (formerly Wylie)

Hi SCARS, Eight years ago we adopted Wyatt (a.k.a. Wylie) through SCARS as a buddy for our Border Collie, Charlie who unfortunately passed in 2016. Although they had really different personalities, they were great buddies. When we lost Charlie, the vet suggested that Wyatt would make a great Certified

Hey SCARS, Pitch here just wanting to give a 1 year update. I found my furever home last year when my mama came to look at my brother storm. I made such an impact on her that she ended up taking me home instead! My mom says I’m such

Sophie (formerly Daenerys)

Hello SCARS, An update on Sophie (formerly Daenerys). We adopted Sophie on October 21, 2017 and have never regretted it. Sophie has settled in with our family and her “big” dog brother Ricky who is 10 ½ years old. She just worships her brother and Ricky probably hates it,
