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!

Oakley (formerly Clank)

Hi SCARS family, I just wanted to send a short report on Oakley (formerly Clank) who I adopted in November 2014. I just wanted to take a moment to brag about how great Oakley is. He is everything I want in a dog—friendly, kind hearted, a goof and a

Major (RIP)

Hi SCARS. We wanted to send a message to say thank you. Ten years ago this month we adopted an older dog. We didn't mean to get an older dog, but we instantly fell in love and decided we wanted him for whatever time he had left in life.

Good evening! My name is Katelyn and my husband and I recently adopted a puppy named castiel from you guys! It's been about a week and we thought you'd like to see how happy he is! He has lots of energy and loves to chase is two cat sisters!

Dryden (formerly Buddy)

In March 2010 we adopted Buddy (now Dryden). SCARS was using Sadies K-9 kennel as a platform for the animals needing homes. We attended on a Saturday afternoon to check out the facility for the purebred puppy we were scheduled to receive in April. Buddy came up and laid

Murdoch (formerly Garth)

We are celebrating 8 years with Murdoch aka Garth. My daughter shared a nice tribute on Instagram I thought you’d like to see. He tolerates the cat, Miss Marple (formerly Diana Prince from SCARS). He had a little health scare with a cancerous lump, but he's all good now.

Sako (formerly Saco)

We're so happy that today is Sako's (adopted as Saco) ONE year adoption anniversary. We took her home at around 9 or 10 weeks from foster, Jen. We are so grateful to have her in our life. She has grown from being a tiny fluffy black bear to a

Blu (formerly Rotini)

Hey Scars here is Blu (formerly Rotini) from the pasta bunch. We adopted him last mid December so he's been here almost a year. He fits perfectly in our family. Super energetic, let's us know when someone is here, listens (most of the time hehe), and has such a
