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!

Toby (in loving memory of)

Dear SCARS, Fourteen years ago we lost an important member of our family and after a few months of grieving we decided we still had enough love to welcome another into our hearts. We found our way to the Pet Expo in Edmonton with our eyes set on

Glenn (formerly Wild Mike)

We adopted Glenn (Wild Mike) 2 years ago from SCARS. He is known for his obsession with the laser pointer and long runs. He has made our family the happiest we have ever been. He constantly brings laughter into our lives over the funny little things he does

Cedric (formerly Sherritt)

Hi SCARS! We were celebrating Cedric’s (formerly known as Sherritt) 1st birthday this past weekend, and we realized we never provided an update on our handsome boy. We adopted Cedric in June 2018, and as new dog owners we feel like we won the lottery. There were certainly

Chevy (in memory of)

I want to let the SCARS universe know that our wonderful Chevy died recently, in peace, at home. Chevy had been in congestive heart failure for almost two years and was feeling the effects of it more and more. As well, he had significant arthritis and struggled to

Hi SCARS, This is Domi (aka Flurry), one of the loves of my lives. He is so sweet and full of cuddles. He just wants love all the time. His sisters love him and he is so gentle with his 14-year-old Jack Russell terrier sister and yet loves

Luna (formerly Pamela)

Hello SCARS, I just wanted to give an update on how Pamela (now Luna) is doing. I also need to give a call out to her foster mom who insisted on a meet’n’greet -- best decision I ever made. Since bringing Luna home in February of 2018, she’s

Ezra (in memory of)

Hi SCARS, You may not remember this gorgeous black lab as she was adopted from SCARS over 14 years ago! Her adoption name was Ezra, we got her at 5 weeks old, but we re-named her Tikka. She was level 2 retriever trained, crazy for fetch and in
