SCARS is saddened to say that sweet Lobo passed away just recently.  It was unfortunately of old age. He had been loosing his sight over the last years but this fall his legs started to fail. He sometimes couldn’t get up at all so another winter would have been too hard for him.

He ran the show until his last day though, such a character that dog was.   His foster mom Terra is devastated.



Lobo has began to loose his faculties and we feel it would be unfair to have him adjust to a new home. He will spend his remaining days enjoying the love and comfort of his foster home. He hopes you find another dog on the SCARS webpage to love.

Is that a polar bear? No, it’s Lobo, a mature 10 year plus, male Chow-cross. I have been an outdoor farm dog most of my life. I think the hassles of leashes and confinement are for the weak of heart. I love people and I am great with kids. I really don’t care for a leash, but I will deal with it if I have to. I LOVE truck rides, but I don’t let you know that right away. As far as all that “messing with me” –brushing, nail trims, handling–it`s really not my thing. But if you want to just hang back and chill, and let me lay beside you and pass the occasional milk bone along, I`m down with that. I have not been tested with cats, but I could be.

Don’t let my age fool you, I still love to run and play, and I even still chase my tail, I do this just to make my foster mom laugh…

I’m a Sanctuary Animal

What’s a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioural issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family.
SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities.
We look to businesses to sponsor Sactuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
