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!

Loki (formerly Trip)

Hi, SCARS! I adopted Legolas through SCARS five years ago, and there hasn’t been a dull moment since!  Last month we added Trip (now Loki) to the family. Lego is very excited to have someone to play with now, and he and Loki are having a lot of fun

Hi SCARS. Gilbert is definitely one snow loving pup! It's very likely he's the only one who has enjoyed the record setting winter this year. Always quick to make a silly face or tell us a story in the morning, Gilly has made our little fur family complete. We

We wanted to drop a quick email to thank SCARS for bringing us together with our newest dog and to give an update to Koda’s old family that may be wondering what he is up to. We were lucky enough to adopt a sweet and shy dog Cooper (formally

Hi SCARS, This was Bodie and Grace this morning. First I would like to say thank you for allowing us to give Ace a new home. She has been great. She is a loving and sweet girl. She is still a little shy but Bodie (our male) is showing
