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, Yoshi here! I just wanted to update you about my new parents, they are fabulous. Every day I get to play ball in the park and go for a long walk in the woods. On the weekends we all wake up late and head for a long run

Cocoa and Casey

I don’t think I have ever sent an ‘official’ update of our two hounds! Cocoa (one of Fossey’s pups) has been with us for 2 1/2 years and when she is not guarding the front window, protecting us from the mailman, the girl guides and that small dog who

Hello SCARS. I wanted to send a quick note about Oscar. I wrote a look at me now update not long after we adopted him in 2014. He was found in a rural dump, underweight and with very bad demodex. We nursed him back to health, fell in love

Hi SCARS! I am still loving life in my forever home. They let me sleep on the furniture, play with me and I get daily walks –  which is my favorite part of my day, of course, after breakfast and dinner. The vet said they have never seen a

Hi SCARS. My name is Gretchen, formerly Azalia. I was adopted last year in April and I’ve now been with my furever family for one year! The past year has been great. My parents are so pleased with my manners, I know how to sit, stay, come, heel and

Tango (formerly Ceceilia)

Just wanted to send an update on Tango (formerly Ceceilia) who was rescued with two bullet wounds right around Christmas time. She is doing SO awesome! She is completely healed up from her wounds and her coat has finally grown back. None of her former injuries seem to have
