Here are the original stories and adoption
information about those dogs who came to us as a result
of abuse or abandonment, and have been placed in permanent homes during 2010.

Adopted*** Maya ***Adopted
Maya had a ride
to Kansas city
in Maureen's Jeep to meet her new family.
They thought she was "beautiful" and she went off to meet
her new brother named Dash who is also a dachshund. Dash lost his playmate last year and has
been very lonely and we all think Maya will be the perfect playmate. Stay tuned!
Maya is a beautiful 15 lb, 2 year
old, black and tan Dachshund. She is
spayed, up to date on her shots, and we are not sure yet about being
housebroken. Maya is definitely
crate trained. She survived the
blizzard of 2009 with minimal shelter so she is a tough little trooper. She
seems to like other animals and is a bit afraid of men at first. One must be gentle and move slowly to get
Adopted*** Remy ***Adopted
Remy was adopted before we could
get her on the webpage!
Remy is a 5 month old, female,
purebred St. Bernard who ended up being too big as a college
"roommate." Maureen was
talking to a woman one day who said "if you ever get a St. Bernard,
let me know!” Knowing she would be
going to a wonderful home with people who are serious animal lovers and have
dogs and horses, we told her about Remy.
Remy is settling nicely into her new home and we will look forward
to hearing about her progress.
Adopted*** Harry (now known as Barkley)
is Harry, now known as Barkley. He
is now happily settled with his new family and doing fine. We worried about him because he was so
shy and afraid of his own shadow. However, when his new family saw his
picture they fell in love with him and were willing to win him over and put
up with his quirky little traits! So, we feel we can relax now and know
that he has found his forever home.
Harry is a male, 2 year old,
purebred, Rat Terrier. He is
neutered, housebroken and really sweet.
He weighs about 15 lbs, is heartworm negative, and up to date on
shots. Harry's owner could not keep
him. He is a perky, and cute little guy who needs a loving home where he
can get a lot of attention. Is this
the dog for you?
Adopted*** Pug Mix Pup #1 ***Adopted
The first of our pug pups has
gone off to his new home!! When I was contacted by the couple who adopted
him, they wanted a small dog. I told them about the pug mix pups and that
the dad was a small/medium sized setter..they were interested!! So tonight
they met all three little boys and this one is now going home for good.
three little boys are ten weeks old, neutered, and are up to date on
shots. Their mom is a purebred pug
and dad a medium sized setter so they will probably not be too big. They are gentle and sweet and seem to
have quiet dispositions. They get
along well with other dogs and all kids. We will keep the website updated
on their progress!
Adopted*** Horatio (now known as Rudy)
is now Rudy (short for Rudolph the Brown Nosed Reindeer) since he was
adopted at Christmas time. The
family had recently lost one of their dogs and the remaining one was lonely
and needed a friend. Rudy and his canine brother are doing fine, but Rudy
really likes the cat and follows him around. He also likes the grandkids
and seems to have won the hearts of the family. We are happy he is safe and
warm and was in his new home for the blizzard of 2009!
Horatio is a 25-30 lb mix of some
sort ... we are not quite sure what.
He was found in the middle of the night wandering down a road
covered in fleas and heavily matted.
He is around two years old and quite lively. Horatio is now neutered
and up to dates on all shots. He
loves people and other dogs and seems to have a great disposition!!
Adopted*** Stella ***Adopted
has settled nicely into her new home with her brother Caymus. She gets to go to the bark park every day
and shares a comfy sofa with her new brother. Stella was on death row in a
shelter near Wichita
so we are all very happy she has found a wonderful new home and has the
love she so richly deserves.
Stella was on death row in a
large shelter in Kansas. She was rescued and went to a new home
who decided in 24 hours they weren’t ready for a dog. So she was then dumped in a boarding
facility and we took her in as she had nowhere to go. Stella is now spayed,
up to date on shots, heartworm
negative and appears to be housebroken.
Today was her first day running free on 50 acres with 40 visiting
teenagers from a local school and she had a blast!! She swam in the pond and played with the
kids and dogs. She appears to be afraid of men but gets over it once she begins
to trust them. According to a local expert, she is a blue brindle
Australian Shepherd. We just love
her and know she will make someone a fabulous companion.
Adopted*** Princess (now known as Mudgie) ***Adopted
is now Mudgie!! When she was brought
to SCARS - a stray with a too tight collar on and somewhat matted - we
began the search for her owners.
Weeks went by and no one claimed her which was highly unusual for a
purebred Sheltie with such a sweet disposition. So I turned to an old friend who is a
Sheltie lover and has one of her own.
She and her husband kindly took Princess in to see how she would get
along with their dog but said "No promises!" As time went by their calls became less
frequent and the "we don't really need two dogs line" sort
of rose up in the air and dissipated. Mudgie is now playing
happily with her sister Sheltie, has a glossy and luxurious coat, and
is content in her new digs. She gave
me the "I am not going back to the orphanage" look when I stopped
by for pictures and looked at her new mom and dad clearly saying
"protect me" with her eyes!!!
We love happy endings!
A few days ago this beautiful
little purebred Sheltie was brought to SCARS with a collar and no tag. We have advertised in the paper, called
the humane society, and animal control with no response. We do not have a lot of info yet ... do
not know if she is spayed and the vet may not know either. We are in the process of getting her
inoculated. We do know that she is
housebroken and very, very sweet and quiet (she has yet to make a sound
!!) Princess weighs about 15
lbs. She seems to be very healthy
and we estimate that she is about 2 years old.
