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!

Hello SCARS, I wanted to send an update on the most beautiful pupper. My parents adopted their Duke from you guys 11 years ago. He was Hopps then. My mom saw him on your Global TV news segment and had to love him!! ❤️ He lived the best

Hi SCARS, Annie has claimed her new domain. She treats her subject with kindness as long as the treats keep coming. She enjoys her 5 a.m. scratching almost as much as her midnight ones. We are loyal to our new Queen to a fault.


Orly (formerly Kraglin)

Hi SCARS. What can I say about Orley! He has brought so much joy into my home! When he first came home with me, he explored the whole house top to bottom. He seemed very happy, as was I. He likes to play and run around the house.
