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 2015.

Adopted *** Valentine (formerly known as Violet) ** Adopted
Violet was a
name that just did not seem to fit, and since she came to us over
Valentine's Day, we renamed her.
She was very sought after so it took some work to find the perfect
home since we had some wonderful choices.
She has gone off to a family in the country with two other dogs and
a little girl to love her. We feel she has found the right home and look
forward to upcoming news!
Violet is a gorgeous 8 month old retriever, and possibly
Brittany Spaniel mix. She has a
glossy, wavy coat, weighs about 40 lbs, is up to
date on all of her shots, and has been spayed. She was found roaming in a
pasture with her sibling (see above) who looks just like her but is
black. The vet is not sure of the
breed, but flat coated retriever is a good guess. Violet is so gentle and
loving and definitely needs another dog to play with.
Adopted *** Jethro (now known as Bishop) ** Adopted
Jethro was with
Angie and Sasha (see next page) when his parents moved into assisted
living. He is a gorgeous miniature
Sheltie and was in need of a new home...soon! Along came some relatives of people who have
adopted from us and they just loved him at first sight. His new name is
Bishop and he is doing great!!
Adopted *** Pepe (now known as Pedro) ** Adopted
Pepe, after many
applications, has gone off to his new home.
His owner is a student at KU and will be keeping him as her forever
dog. She grew up with dogs and is
sensible and knowledgeable and has the right instincts. So far he is sleeping in bed with her and
is excited when she returns. He will
be joining up with his new roommate, Jasper, in a few weeks!
Pepe is a one year old, neutered, male Wire Haired Chihuahua. He weighs almost 10 lbs
and is partially housebroken. He is
gentle, does not bark and gets along with all animals and people. Pepe was found in a field and was never
claimed, so we are so happy he came here as we all love him. He will make the perfect companion/lap
Adopted *** Tonka ** Adopted
There are no words
to describe the day I first saw this dog sitting, near death, in a
truck. He was rushed to the vet
where I was told he was hours from death and they could not guarantee
he would live. Days of intensive
care, IV fluids at the emergency vet followed by weeks of monitoring
and today he is alive and well....and adopted. Tonka is now his name,
and he is living a wonderful life and adored by his owner. He is a
Adopted *** Lacy ** Adopted
Lacy is a
darling purebred Boxer who spent her life living in a garage. Yes, it was warm and she had plenty of
food and her owners came to visit her every day, but she was lonely. Finally after much going back and forth,
they relinquished her to us. Of
course, she was very popular and everyone wanted her so I had to choose
what I felt was the perfect home....a big yard and another dog to play
with. I think we made a good
decision and Lacy is settled in nicely in her new home and loves the
Adopted *** Samantha ** Adopted
on a farm in Wichita and no one claimed her. The couple fed and cared for her, but
could not keep her. So she came here
and began her busy life digging up the 50 acres looking for critters. When we heard a screech, we knew
she had scored. So, we were not
sure she would be able to be domesticated and settle into life in
town. But, we were wrong! A wonderful couple came along who had lost
their beagle and their other dogs was sad and lonely. Samantha has surprised us all....she is
good as gold and has learned to ring a bell when she needs to go
outside. Most importantly, she has
filled the void left by the dog who passed and Riley has a new friend! Do you love these pictures???
Samantha is an 8
month old hound dog...maybe coonhound? She only weighs 40 lbs and is spayed and mostly housebroken. Samantha wandered onto a farm in Wichita
and hung around. The couple loved
her but could not keep her and called us.
She was very thin when they found her, but she is fattening up
now. Scout loves to play and is a
total goofball. She shows no
aggression to a person or animal at any time. Hounds actually make wonderful
family pets because of their easy going disposition and loving nature. One cannot help but love this little gal.
Adopted *** Juno ** Adopted
I have never met
Juno, but I found her a home!! The
owners called me and asked if we could help find her a new home as they did
not have time for her. I spent a lot
of time on the phone and computer and finally one of the homes worked
out great. I have not received a
picture yet so here is this adorable dog who now has a blonde lab
brother her age!
Adopted *** Zoey ** Adopted
Zoey came with
her buddy, Norman (see below), and was starving. She had lost most of her body hair from
fleas, and was heartworm positive.
Zoey was older which made her harder to adopt and she was returned
once for chasing their cats!
However, the right family came along with children and another dog
to be her friend. Although she has
been sad and lonely since being separated from Norman, she is adjusting nicely and settling in.
Zoey is a 6 year old spayed Labrador retriever. She weighs about 75 lbs
and is gentle and housebroken. Zoey
would be the perfect dog for a retired couple as she is quiet and well
behaved - only wants to be petted and walked and hang out with her people.
Adopted *** Norman ** Adopted
us in bad shape. He is a
beautiful purebred Irish Setter but was starving and heartworm
positive. Here at SCARS we began his
treatment and put ten pounds on him for starters!! Of course, everyone wanted him but the
right person called and said all of the right things. His new owner lives in Delaware near the
ocean and has always had setters. He
said he would drive to pick him up and he did! Norman is now an Easterner and spoiled
and loved. The pictures are great
and we thank this family for making the trip and helping him be a part of
his new life.
Norman is a two
year old purebred Irish setter. He
came to us severely underweight and heartworm positive. However, he has
gained ten pounds, now weighs about 45 lbs, and
is feeling great. He is being
treated for HW and it does not slow him down one bit. Norman is housebroken and loves kids and
other dogs. He is healthy and strong and really gorgeous.
Adopted *** Boomer ** Adopted
I really did
not think we would ever find a home for this dog! He was such a mess...he jumped and
twirled and tried to bite everyone.
He was going to be "put down" at a nearby shelter. They called and asked if we could take
him so we did. He went to one home
and the mom loved him, but the two children decided he had to go and mom
obeyed. Such a shame...anyway, an unlikely owner came along and I thought
it could never work, but this gal has defied the odds. She has worked through his issues
miraculously. I know there were times
she wanted to give up, but the Goober, as she calls him, kept winning her
heart. Thank you from the bottom of
Boomer is a year old mix of some sort! He appears to be a Lab, maybe English
Setter. He is a male, neutered, and
housebroken. Boomer is great with
kids and other dogs, BUT seems leery of men at first. He will bark and act very scary, but is
fine once he gets to know them.
He is great with women!
Boomer is about 70 lbs and very
strong. Anyone who adopts him will
have to exercise him and be able to control him on a leash. I use a harness which seems to work
fine. He was in city shelter and not
doing well so we moved him here so he could exercise. Boomer needs
more socialization, but is really beautiful and will make someone a
Adopted *** Echo ** Adopted
As you may
recall, we got three purebred Jack Russell Terrier pups four years ago.
They were adopted fast and had wonderful homes, but one of them has decided
she no longer likes her canine sibling and has become very
disagreeable. Therefore, she has
been adopted to a new home where she is an only child and the center of
attention. Echo is very happy and very loved.
Adopted *** Sammy ** Adopted
Sammy has had a rough time, but we think he has finally gotten to
the right home. He was in the country, but cooped up due to his
hyperactivity. One day a visitor
intruded on his territory and he bit him in the foot. Not bad, but they called the cops and he
was carted off to doggie jail. After
his ten day quarantine, we were able to find a great home for him in the
country, but as an inside pet also!!
Adopted *** Clementine ** Adopted
Clemmie has been
adopted to a family with two other dogs and has a huge fenced back
yard. She has two college age human siblings to love her and is fitting in
nicely in her new home.
Clementine, or "Clemmie,"
as she is affectionately called is a 5 month old Hound Dog/(maybe)Dachshund mix of some sort. She is growing and now weighs about 38 lbs, is spayed and up to date on shots. Clemmie is
almost housebroken ( I can hear the calls now.."what does almost
mean??”} To me it means she only has an occasional accident. So, with that being said, she loves
everyone and is playful and fun. She
is a bit of a weenie (no pun intended) in that she squeaks and runs if her
toe gets stepped on. She is in a
