Adopted*** Riley ***Adopted
Riley is an adorable 4 month old,
female, black Labrador Retriever. She
was found wandering around a neighborhood and all efforts to find her home
failed. Riley has been adopted by a
wonderful family who already have two SCARS dogs!! Their dogs are getting up in age and they
decided they had room for a puppy - their boys love her!! We know this is a great home and are so
happy they adopted her.
Adopted*** AJ ***Adopted
AJ came to us from an old friend
in Wichita. He was found on the side of the road, limping,
but our friend had no money to get him to a vet. Our new helper at SCARS drove to pick him
up and fell in love with him. We have had him neutered and X-rayed and his
hips are dislocated but it is an old injury and for the time being, he is
doing fine on his medication. If
surgery is needed down the road, we will take care of it. In the meantime, here he is with his new
mommy (the one who picked him up!!!)
Adopted*** Lily ***Adopted
Lily is doing great with her brother
who also has a physical disability. She is enjoying life, running around
and playing and, as you can see, taking lots of naps!! (she is the one in
the back!) If at some point her
condition deteriorates, we will all (SCARS and her new family) take her to
K State for an evaluation but for now, she is doing really well. We could
not have found a better home for this lucky little pup.
Lilly was found by one of
Maureen's students one cold winter night on the side of the road. He (the student) thought she had
been hit by a car because she dragged her back legs and was nothing but
skin and bones. His family had no
money to take her to a vet, so Maureen encouraged him to turn her over to
SCARS. The vet feels her prognosis
is good and is not sure if she suffered trauma as a puppy or if it is a
congenital problem. Lilly is now 5 months old and weighs 9 lbs. She will be spayed soon and is learning
to go to the potty outside. She has
now been wormed and had her puppy shots.
As you can see in the short video below, she gets around really well
now and sort of bunny hops!! Lilly is brave...she never complains about her
fate and is so happy to be warm now.
Do you want a true rescue dog? If so, here she is!!
This family has been adopted!
family who contacted us about momma's pups had actually seen her story on
the Internet and had considered rescuing her and her babies but SCARS got
them all first!! When she saw them
on our website, she felt it was fate!
They drove from Omaha,
NE and adopted a darling
female named Buffy and here she is with her new human sister!
of our licensed fosters found Sadie and her pups on the internet with a
plea for help from a large city shelter in Kansas. She asked if we could do a shelter
transfer and she would take care of the pups and SCARS took care of the vet
bills.What a wonderful job she did raising these pups to be the healthy,
fluffballs they are. In the meantime, she decided she could not give up
Momma and has now adopted her as her own. I love happy endings!!!
and her 5 newborns were dumped at a high kill shelter in Kansas who put out a plea for help,
"This is no place for this little family." A friend of SCARS called me and offered
to go get them if we would do a shelter transfer and now her
babies are 8 weeks old and precious.
It appears they are a Pomeranian/Yorkie mix and there are 3 females
and 2 males. They have been wormed
and had their first puppy shots and declared very healthy by the vet. The two males are blonde and tan, with 2
blonde females and one tan. Aren't they just precious? Here is mom on arrival...
Adopted*** Max ***Adopted
was found as stray and taken in by SCARS.
He was advertised for several days and never claimed. We gave up looking for his owners and
found him a great new home with a family who had lost their Boston Terrier
and were ready to rescue another one.
Max came and went before we could even get him on the website which
is wonderful when it happens!! So
far..he is doing great.
Adopted*** Freckles (now known as Pippi) ***Adopted
is a great SCARS story....one of my student's mom has Cocker Spaniels and
SCARS has placed many of them!
"Freckles" was the last and needed a new home and I
remembered someone had mentioned wanting one. Freckles' mom is now a therapy
dog at a nursing home.
Anyway, I went through my notes, found the name I was looking
for and everything fell into place really fast!! Freckles is now Pippi and she has a
sister named Gatsby. These two are
doing great and I wish all adoptions could be so smooth.
Adopted*** Maya ***Adopted
Maya has been adopted and
has gone to a nice home in Osage.
She has her own fenced in yard where she can run and play. Have a great life, Maya!
Maya is 17 months old and her
energy is too much for the elderly dog that lives with her. Maya is spayed and housebroken and weighs
about 60 lbs. She is up to date on
shots and heartworm negative. Maya
is a Husky/Malamute mix and loves to eat ice cubes and play
Frisbee. She also loves kids, adults
and other dogs. Actually, she would be okay as an outside dog if she had
good protection from the elements, a fenced in yard, and lots of room to
