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!

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

Shelby (formerly Keesha)

Hi SCARS, I just want to send you an update on Keesha. She's has been the most amazing kitten. She is doing so good! I can't thank you enough! We did rename her to Shelby because of the black stripes on her back. She reminded us of a

Hi SCARS! Elmer is doing great. He is very protective and loves his farm life. He can’t wait to get to the barn to see everybody. He’s about 60 lbs. Don’t think he will get much bigger just fill out a little bit more. We had a party

I know it has been a while since you last heard from me. I had just recovered from surgery on my palate and was waiting to get my permanent teeth so I could have my dental assessment. Because of the malformation of my jaw there was concern that
