Hi, SCARS! We adopted Dodger on October 31, 2015 after reading his profile online. Our first meeting was at Sadie’s K9 Stay and Play and we were instantly hooked (it was the butt wiggle)! In the beginning (and middle), Dodger was very timid around men; he would cower and


With mom shot and left for dead, Bronco and Bear’s lives hung in the balance

Being in the right place at the right time is very important. It saved the lives of Bronco and Bear. Saturday, November 18, on a job site in Heart Lake, Bronco and Bear were found nearly frozen and very hungry. Further into the bushes lay their mom – deceased

On December 8, Blue passed a post-surgery veterinary follow-up appointment with flying colours. He is healing very nicely and finished his medications on Dec. 9. We are so pleased to announce that we have found him a forever home. Thank you to his foster mom for the loving care

Hi!  My name is Billie. And, as you can see, I am the mostest adorabalest princess in the whole wide world! But I wasn’t always that way. I ended up in the City of Edmonton Animal Control facility on Dec 4, 2015.  Fortunately, a short time later, I came


Pumpkin’s story – Sometimes injured dogs hide, but we don’t give up on them!

Hi guys! I’m Pumpkin and I consider myself a pretty lucky gal. People heard me crying and it took them five days to finally find me. I’m so lucky that SCARS sent an angel to rescue me. When she found me I was hiding in a hole I had

Mya (formerly Hannah)

Hello SCARS, I wanted to share Mya’s “Look at me now” story. Exactly a year ago today I picked up Mya (formerly Hannah) from her foster mom’s house. She was four months old and had a deformity to one of her front paws. But right away I fell in love

Hello SCARS! Just wanted to touch base with an update on Teddy. Let me say… He is the sweetest, cuddliest, nicest boy I could have ever thought of bringing into my home. He has not put a paw wrong, and he and my (rather vicious) cat get along really
