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!


Hi SCARS, We got Zeke in December 2017 and the happiness and love he has brought our family is irreplaceable! Haiden (our son) and Zeke have become the best of friends. We joke and call them brothers because their relationship is like that of siblings. He is the biggest

Sahda (formerly Grumpy)

Hi SCARS, it was hard day at our house on July 15. We had so say our goodbyes to the best buddy we could ever have had. We adopted Sahda (Grumpy) from you guys seven years ago. Every day she brought so much joy and love into our house

Hi SCARS, One year ago I met and fell in love with Foster and made him part of my family. He is the sweetest little boy and definitely spoiled. He loves people and playing, and you can't help but fall in love with him. Thank you so much!

I wanted to give you a little update on Figaro. It's hard to believe that we've had her for nearly two months! She's settled in beautifully and we LOVE her. We've come to know her as a very sweet, quirky little kitty. She always seems to be near us,

Cali and Dusti

Hey there, we adopted a cat and dog from you guys a few years back. They have now become the best of friends and just made a long road trip across Canada together. I wanted to send you some pictures of our trip of Cali (cat) and Dusti (dog)

Hi SCARS! I wanted to give you an update on Sandy! It's been just over a year since I adopted him - June 25th last year. Now I can't imagine my life without him. I remember the day I got him. I drove all the way up from Cochrane

Hi SCARS! I’d like to thank everyone at SCARS for the work you do! A year ago we adopted our sweet little girl from you. Her name was Mercedes and we kept that name. To remind you, she was the gray poodle X, the one with the spinal injury

Vinny (formerly Vince Vaughn)

Hi SCARS. Thanks again! We want to update you about our dog Vincent (we call him Vinny)! When we first met him, he looked very lost and skinny! His foster mom was worried that anyone who adopted him might be in for a challenge. He had a history of

Hello! We adopted King last August. As you can see he is right at home and his best friend is our cat, Sappho. It took him awhile to overcome some separation anxiety. A chewed up couch and ottoman, door frame and bannister, but he got over it and we
