I am looking for a special home, not one that wants to fit me into their mold but rather just likes who I am. I came in with a group of very under socialized dogs, none of us had been handled as puppies, so I don't look at human contact the same way a normal pet dog would. I am now drifting into my senior years and hope I can find a nice retirement home who will appreciate me even if it takes time for me to build trust. I have learned a ton since coming to SCARS. I am delightful on leash and great in the house but I want nothing to do with that city lifestyle, all that =scary. I am just a quiet, calm girl who wants to live in the country, relax with my dog and cat friends (a canine companion will be necessary in my forever home), nap at your feet in the living room, go for a walk and not be expected to handle all that "petting" nonsense. Please watch my video and read below for a note from my foster mom to make sure you are the right match for me before you apply, my grooming requirements are the biggest challenge! A note form my foster mom! "She has made great progress from her days as a feral dog, but she still requires a calm, well managed environment. A rural setting is a must. She needs a fenced area for exercise and needs to be on leash at all other times. City noises, traffic, too many people are too much for her and she will default to running away blindly. She requires another dog or dogs in the home as Tynder follows the lead of other dogs. She would prefer a cat in her home as well, but this is not essential! Her people have to be patient and okay with the fact that she does not enjoy to be touched. She is a challenge to groom as she has a very thick and difficult coat. It isn't an ideal combination - a dog who hates to be touched and a coat of fur that grows like bad weeds. She is house trained, loves food, and is content to sit quietly with family."

I'm a Sanctuary Animal

What's a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioral 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 Sanctuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them. Click here learn more about our Sanctuary Animals
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.
