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!

Gemma (formerly Magestrix)

Hi SCARS, We adopted or very sweet and awesome kitty Gemma (formerly Magestrix) at the end of May. She was then a young Momma cat whose kittens had just been weaned and still a kitten herself. She quickly settled into her new home and won her way into

Hello SCARS, I would like to let you know that when I was adopted on July 29, 2020, I was 8 weeks old and I was named Bud, but my family changed it to Louie. I’m already around 35 pounds, and I have an older sister whose name

Hi SCARS, First I wanted to say thank you to your rescue, and also a huge thank you to the foster families for everything you do for animals. I adopted Willow (formerly Alexis) a little less than a month ago. When we initially went to meet her she

Hello SCARS, I thought you might like an update on George the blind dog that was found in January. He's been with us just over 2 months now. George has become quite the little local celebrity! The neighbours all know him and their kids like to give him


Lita (formerly Iris)

Hello SCARS, Just wanted to give an update on our Lita girl (formerly Iris) who we adopted almost 9 years ago from SCARS! When we originally met her, they told us that she wouldn’t do well in a house with cats, probably would be better without young children,

Hello SCARS, Mr. David came into our lives in early April. I saw his pictures and fell in love. I have a soft spot for pups with heterochromia. David was very timid with us at first, that didn’t last long as he opened up to us and settled
