Adopted*** Tony (now known as Gus) ***Adopted
Tony has finally landed in a good,
safe home. He was found wandering in the country and taken in by a family
who had other dogs. They could not keep him and because he is a little guy
and winter is around the corner, he needed a home soon. Tony is seen here
snuggling with his new mom who says he is doing just fine. His new name is
Tony is a male, one year old,
stray, Rat Terrier. We aren’t sure
about his shats status, but we are working with the vet and will have him
updated and neutered soon. He is real
friendly with all animals, as well as people. Tony just showed up on someone’s doorstep
one day. He weighs about 13 lbs and
has a very quiet disposition.
Adopted*** Mandy ***Adopted
was brought to Topeka by a family traveling from
western Kansas. She was one of a litter of 12 who were
"dumped." Her sister is
still here but Mandy has a wonderful new home. She is now living with a
family of four on a lake and her "sister" is a volunteer at SCARS
so we will get to see her a lot. She is learning all kinds of new
things and we know she will have a wonderful life!!
Adopted*** Cookie ***Adopted
has a wonderful new home and gets to stay inside with her "dad."
who is retired and has time for her. Cookie's family consists of two
parents and grandkids who come to visit and play with her. She has a nice
big yard and gets to ride in the truck a lot too!! I think she has finally
found a forever home and we are so pleased and happy for her.
is a year old female Setter mix. She
is really a special dog...perfectly behaved and housebroken. Cookie is up to date on her shots, spayed
and weighs 47 lbs. She loves all people and animals and has a quiet
loving disposition and she misses the kids in her family.
Adopted*** Laddie ***Adopted
had a new home, is an only dog and gets lots of walks. He also gets to
sleep in bed with his new owner and likes being the center of attraction!
Laddie is a purebred registered
Shetland Sheepdog. He is one year
old, neutered and housebroken. He weighs about 20 pounds. Laddie's owner fell on hard times and is
unable to keep him. Laddie is shy and anxious to belong to someone. You
just could not find a more wonderful dog!
Adopted*** Ivy ***Adopted
Ivy has gone to a
wonderful home in Kansas City where she is an only dog, which is what she
has wanted all along. Her owner loves German Shepherds and has been waiting
until she got her own home with a fenced yard. We are all so happy for Ivy
who was not appreciated before for the beautiful and sweet girl she is.
Ivy is a female, 2 year old,
purebred German Shepherd. She is
housebroken and needs to be an inside/outside dog. Ivy has come from a neglectful
environment where she was not fed adequately and her ears were bitten badly
by flies. She is gentle and loving and is now on the mend. She will be
spayed when the vet says her weight is normal.
has gone to a 250 acre farm and is being spoiled rotten. He has his own lazy boy recliner and a
little dog and a cat to run around with.
When I called to check on him, he was busy picking tomatoes with his
new mom. We weren’t sure we would
ever find the right home for Davis,
but he now has a forever home.
is a 6 month old, Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler mix. He is friendly and
loving, but shy around people at first. Davis was abandoned on a dirt road in the
country with a small bowl of water and a handful of dry dog food in the
dirt. He refused to leave this spot because he believed his owner would
for him. After both dog and people rolled around in the dirt for awhile, he
gave up and came here to SCARS. He is now neutered and UTD on his
shots. Davis deserves a home and family – can
you adopt him?
