Cody (formerly Petra)

I am the SCARS volunteer coordinator and I adopted Cody (previously Petra). All I know about Cody is that she had a rough few first years of her life. It is believed she lived outside and, unfortunately – for more than a year – with a broken back leg.

Molly (previously Ella)

Molly (previously Ella) was rescued by SCARS along with her eight pups and taken to the Hinton SPCA. When I picked her up February 5 of this year, they had to carry her to put her in the back of my vehicle to bring home. She was stressed with

Ellie (formerly Elf)

Hi SCARS, I just wanted to give an update on Oakley. She is doing great and fitting in so well with our family. She loves my 3-year-old daughter, our cat and our other dog Odin. When we first adopted her she was really thin and didn’t eat as much

We have a very sad update about a dog that was part of our spay-neuter-return program. Breevo was a young, healthy dog that had been spayed by SCARS to reduce the number of unwanted pets in a northern community. We got a frantic call recently from her owner who

Checkers, Twister and Yahtze

We are four-month-old siblings and, unlike our new names, our lives have not been fun and games. We have learned a lot of lessons. Some very hard ones and some good ones in a very short time. First lesson. A garbage dump is no place for puppies. So many
