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!

Jack (formerly Simba)

We all need a good news story! SCARS received an update on Jack (formerly Simba). He was adopted a year ago🎉! He came to SCARS from a rural pound, and he looked lonely and depressed. His foster mom brought him home where he settled in for the night.

Hi SCARS, I just wanted to write to you about our newly adopted cat, Mateo, who is a wonderful fit in our home. We are delighted to have him in our lives. Thank you for all you do and for giving us the chance to find such an



Hi SCARS, Four years ago I went to meet my possible pet. Foreman was a nine-pound bundle of fur living with his five littermates. They all looked alike. Well now he is my "panini dog."  Short and long. His mom was a dachshund and the dad a golden


Phantom (formerly Shelly)

Hi SCARS! I just wanted to share with you that Shelly (now Phantom - due to her Phantom of the Opera mask) is doing very well. We are a whole day into her joining our family and everyone seems to be adjusting well! She has discovered her new

Keira and Ryder

Here we are SCARS. Our journey has been long and daunting. We were adopted out when we were both just puppies from two separate litters. We then found a forever home and learned to be the best of buds. We are a match made in heaven. Keira (me)

Noodle (formerly Earl Grey) and Ginger (formerly Lady Jasmine)

When SCARS took into care two tiny orphan kittens, their rescuers estimated them to be about two weeks old.  They were scruffy, with ungroomed and messy fur, and about the size of large hamsters. Everyone, including the vet, was shocked when upon examination, the kittens' teeth revealed them

Ginger (formerly Lady Jasmine)

Hi SCARS, Lady Jasmine's name has been changed to Ginger. Ginger has been great for the kids. She loves to lay with them and be petted- she’s a purrrr machine!! However, she doesn’t like to play with the kids like Lenni does and get rambunctious. So the kids

Bailey (formerly Peach)

Good Afternoon, SCARS. We adopted Peach in mid-November 2019. She is just about four months old. We decided within days of her arrival that she would become “Bailey”. For Bailey, the first few weeks were likely very interesting and challenging: Learning to climb stairs in her new four
