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!

Enzo (formerly Davie)

Hi SCARS! I fell in love with Enzo almost the moment I laid eyes on him. We sat down with his foster family to meet him and before long, he was laying at my feet, perfectly comfortable. I would have taken him home immediately, but we had to wait

Loki (formerly Cole)

Hi SCARS, Even though we don't have room for another dog we still look at all the animals that SCARS has and it breaks our hearts to read about the poor animals that come into their care that have been injured and neglected. It warms our hearts that there

Teddy Lee

Hi SCARS, Here is a photograph of Teddy. I adopted him from you several years ago. He is such a good cat! Teddy was abandoned with a broken jaw, dehydrated and malnourished, lying in a gas station parking lot until you found him.  God Bless all your hearts at

Hi SCARS, This is Lily (formerly known as Cher). We adopted her at the end of April of this year. This spunky girl loves her squeaky toys and playing in the water. She has quite the nose on her which helps her to do some tracking, but this currently

Finnegan (formerly Gable)

Hey SCARS! Thought you might like an update on Finnegan (formerly known as Gable). Finn is growing into a big, rambunctious guy! The vet couldn’t believe how big he was for his age. He’s quite active, enjoying lots of long walks, and chasing Daddy around the house. Nothing is

Hi SCARS! I love seeing all of the "Look at Me Now" updates so I thought I would send you one of my own. A year ago we adopted Kepler (formerly Hazel). And it was one of the best decisions we ever made. She matches our life perfectly. When
