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 SCARS, We adopted Andre last week and he is fitting in so perfectly with our family. He is very well behaved and is so quiet and gentle with the kids. We could not have asked for a better fit. We are still working out some kinks with


Arlo (formerly Wolffy)

Hello SCARS, We adopted Arlo (formerly Wolffy) at the end of September, and now we can't (and more so don't want to) remember what life was like before he joined our little family. He makes us proud everyday and brings unlimited amounts of joy to our lives. His

Theodora (formerly Rainer)

Hello SCARS, We wanted to share an update on our (not so little anymore) little bean. We adopted Theodora, previously Rainer, on August 18 at 10 weeks old, and she stole our hearts immediately. Our 13 pound fluff ball was obsessed with us right away, and her obsession

Hello SCARS, Here is an update on Crusoe who came to us in June 2011 during the first Canadian Animal Task Force clinic (then called the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force) that SCARS was involved in. I had been volunteering for SCARS a year or so at that


Snax (formerly Sparks)

Hello SCARS, After a few days of being named Sparks, he now has the name Snax (named by Ethan) and has been an absolutely wonderful addition to our family. He loves snow and since he has strictly been an indoor cat, we often bring in a tub of

Meeko (formerly Blanche)

Hello SCARS, I wanted to give you an update on our newest addition Meeko (formerly Blanche). We have been so happy to have her in our little family. We got her almost a month ago, and she was very quick to settle in. She is such a happy

Hudson (formerly Ganges)

Hello SCARS, Thank you for bringing Hudson (formerly Ganges, one of Rio’s river pups – who is technically still a river) into our family. He has made such an impact on our lives in the short time we’ve had him and has been a huge part of my

Hello SCARS, I adopted Binoo, who was in your care during July 2019. Binoo has gained at least 10lbs and is a healthy 80lbs. She loves any kind of food and, in particular, likes to eat the crab apples off our tree. I take her to my dad's place every

Drax and Nebula

Hello SCARS, We adopted Drax and Nebula, our little fur babies, in January 2020, after our old girl died suddenly. They have brought so much joy to my family. I couldn’t imagine our lives without them! They are siblings so are obviously very bonded, but we brought another
