It is with a heavy heart that we must announce sweet Marley has recently passed over the rainbow bridge.  Her health took a very sudden turn for the worst and her foster mom Sylvia is devastated.  She was a loyal and beautiful soul and will be missed dearly.  SCARS was able to give her a wonderful life as a sanctuary animal.  A special thanks to her sponsor Jo-Anne.



I am a Shepherd-cross, and about 6 years old. My foster mom says I have the softest fur ever. I have been in foster care for some time, and was returned once for not being so kind to strangers coming into my yard. My foster mom says I have never had a problem in my current foster home, but maybe it’s because I now live on a large acreage. Or maybe it’s because I’m not the only dog so I don’t feel it’s my job to protect the property. Who knows? We do know that I am good with other dogs, though I prefer to ignore them until I get to know them better. I melt like butter when I get to  go for walks with Hennessy! He is the only dog I get excited to see and hang out with. I am house and crate-trained and am great off and on-leash.

My foster mom thinks I am a wonderful, loyal girl and will make a great best bud for the right person. I guess my ideal home would be one that likes to go for walks, since I have to work hard at keeping my figure just so. I would also prefer a home that does not have a lot of people coming and going. Another dog would also be nice, but not a must.

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.
