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!

Eddie and Magic Mike

Eddie was adopted in April 2012 after SCARS picked him up from a northern community pound and he’s been living the good life since then! He was skinny and his hair was matted and he looked like the saddest little guy in the picture on the SCARS website. Fast

Max (formerly Rocky Road)

Hi SCARS, I'd like to share my story of adopting Max. When we got him at 8 weeks in December 2017. He was a tiny, happy furball that got into everything! Soon we noticed that he had a rash from the fleas he had prior to SCARS rescuing him.

Murphy (formerly Elliott)

Hello SCARS. As Murphy's 10th birthday approaches (in March 2018) I was reminded that she got her start in SCARS foster care with one of your volunteers, Barb Sheppard. What a sweet lady Barb was, and Momma Lorelai was a great mom to her 10 puppies named after the
