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!


Hi SCARS volunteers, My family and I adopted Trooper a month ago. He was on kennel rest when he can home with us. He is doing great! He has settled into our family amazingly well. He loves having his ears scratched and belly rubs and playing with his fur


Mr. Jim Lahey (formerly Marcus)

Hi SCARS. Thought I’d provide a Look at Me Now update as requested! The results are in! Mr Jim Lahey has quite a diverse ancestry back ground. We guessed Shepherd/Golden Retriever given his appearance and obsession with fetch, but we were most curious about what breed accounted for his

Harlow (formerly Zena)

Hello SCARS! I am Harlow (formerly Zena) and I chose my furever home back in 2014. When I was with SCARS, I was extremely timid. The slightest noise or movement would send me into hiding. I warmed up to my mum in the pet store I was being fostered

September 2018 Hi SCARS! I was looking for a new puppy. Well, not necessarily a puppy. Ok, truth be known, I didn’t want a puppy. I didn’t want to have to go through house training again. But, who can’t look at the puppies anyway?! I saw a picture of

Miss Elsa Mars (formerly Penny)

Hi SCARS, I have an update on Miss Elsa Mars, formerly Penny from the Beatles litter. Miss Elsa Mars is very grateful for SCARS to have given her the chance to live the princess life! Her favourite color is pink (most of her stuff is pink!), and her favourite

August 2018 - Hi there, Banjo here. I'm sending you an update of how I'm doing. My new mom and dad say they couldn't love me more. They say I'm just too sweet. I can go up and down stairs now and can even jump into my favourite chair,


Enzo (formerly Davie)

Hi SCARS! I fell in love with Enzo almost the moment I laid eyes on him. We sat down with his foster family to meet him and before long, he was laying at my feet, perfectly comfortable. I would have taken him home immediately, but we had to wait
