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 RIP

Our dog, Oakley, crossed over the rainbow bridge earlier this week. We got Oakley from SCARS 13 years ago. He was the gentlest most loving dog. He got along with all creatures big and small. He was well loved and will be badly missed. Linda and Sonny Kim

Luna (formerly Elluna)

Hi SCARS, Owen and I adopted Luna (Elluna) a month ago. Luna is growing up to be an energetic little goof ball. She loves to tug and chew on everything, especially anything that squeaks! She has quickly become the new fluffy star of our neighbourhood even though she would

Kai (formerly Ang)

Hi SCARS. It has been 3 years since we adopted Kai and he has been the most amazing addition to our family! We brought him home when he was only 2 months old, and several years later, he still thinks he’s as small as the day we took him

Freya (formerly Chianti)

It's been a year (late last month), since we adopted Chianti from SCARS. I thought I would send an update on how she is doing now. We gave her the name Freya which is old Norse for "the lady" and is also associated with fertility, beauty and love. Frey is

Wall-E (formerly Diego)

A special hello to SCARS and my foster mom Sherri! On March 27, 2017 I met my furever family! My parents came to meet me and even brought my future sister Pistol with them. Well it must have been love because a few days later, my mom was back

Ava (formerly Jada)

When people find out we are a SCARS foster home, they often ask us how we can possibly care for dogs in our home and then say goodbye when they are adopted. We respond that we've had around 25 wonderful dogs stay with us while they waited for their

Firstly I would like to thank SCARS and Linda for bringing Jasper (formerly Kelly) into our lives. Jasper turned a year old on November 1 and we love her so much. She is so full of life and loves everything new - new people, new places and especially new

On Thanksgiving weekend, 2017, we said goodbye to a precious member of our family, Houston. We called him HoustonTheWonderDog because he truly was wonderful.  He found his forever home with us in 2004 after being rescued and cared for by SCARS. Thank you. Houston was loving, loyal, funny &
