Adopted *** Hogan *** Adopted
Hogan was rescued from someone who was not kind to him. He came here with his little sidekick, a
Pekingese named Meka. We thought she would be the first to be
adopted but lo and behold, Hogan was!!
Anyway, I worried about him even being adoptable since he growled
and acted shy...but he is doing great with savvy dog people who love
and understand him!
Adopted *** Max *** Adopted
It may seem strange to see an adoption picture with someone in
bed, but here is the story. This woman
lost her sight and her leg two years ago and has soldiered on alone. She has a live in helper now and her
most ardent wish was to get a puppy to "give her something to live
for." I took a Pittie puppy to her apartment with great
misgivings, but everything has worked out just fine. She adores this pup and all the neighbors
pitch in and help her exercise him and take care of him.
Adopted *** Kimber *** Adopted
Kimber came to us as the runt of a litter of purebred
German Shepherds. She was thin and
had a bad infestation of worms so we went about taking care of all of
that. The son, and his family,
of one of our fosters adopted her and she is
surely one of the prettiest shepherds we have ever seen!
Adopted *** Millie *** Adopted
actually picked up by some firefighters, put on the fire truck, and taken
to my foster's house. Millie was
very thin and not spayed, so since no owners ever appeared, we got
everything done. In time a great person decided to adopt her and she
is doing just fine!
Adopted *** Saber *** Adopted
When Saber arrived at SCARS we thought he would be gone
overnight. However, he is young and
energetic and not everyone can deal with that. He is a purebred, registered, neutered
and up to date on shots...friendly with everyone. What a deal!! Then along came this couple who have had
Labs and know how to train them and work with them. We think Saber will be very happy on
his new 130 acres in the country!!
Saber is a
registered, purebred, male, black Lab.
He is a year old and neutered.
He has temporarily forgotten his original house training and needs a
brush up course. Saber LOVES other
dogs but especially kittens who he can play with endlessly. He has had some sort of training
according to owner, but we are trying to get more details. Isn't he
Adopted *** Violet *** Adopted
We have been unable to get a picture of Violet and her family
but we sure have talked to them.
Poor Violet came from a puppy mill and was neglected and dirty and
matted. Her new family saw through
that to the darling dog she is and now she is all cleaned up and settled
nicely in her new home!
Adopted *** Stella *** Adopted
When on my way to KC, I received a phone call that a beautiful
blonde lab was found sitting in the middle of the highway about 20 miles
from our shelter. With nowhere to
take her, she ended up here with my friends who were taking care of the
dogs while I was gone. The owner
surfaced but after a conversation, she decided to surrender her to
SCARS. In less than 24 hours I had a
new home for her with someone who was waiting for the right dog and it
worked out great. Stella is now in
her new home and I wish all adoptions could be so easy!!
Adopted *** Stash *** Adopted
Stash and Lucy (see belwo), the rat
terrier, were living a sad life as their owner was never around. They spent the hot summer in the yard and
the neighbors fed and watered them.
Both dogs have now been adopted and both had adopted dogs from SCARS
before. If you remember Stubbs, the
one whose mother chewed off his back feet,
he is now the brother to Stash!"
Stash is a 9 yr old purebred registered Chihuahua. He is neutered and very healthy with
clean white teeth. He just wants to
be someone’s lap dog
Adopted *** Tank *** Adopted
TANK!!! Tank is finally
settled in his new home and it has taken a lot of screening to find what we
thought would be the perfect home.
Here he is with his new family and they look so happy!!
Tank is a one
year old English Mastiff mix of 100lbs.
He is gentle but strong and we have seen no aggression. He is kennel trained and walks well on a
leash, as long as you have good control.
Tank came to us in poor condition and has gained weight and
confidence. He has a gorgeous
brindle coat and will make a large dog lover a great companion!
Adopted *** Cookie *** Adopted
Cookie was a stray in a nearby town and she probably wore
the people out - they let her run off and did not look for her. I was not sure anyone would be up to
training her but one of our volunteers was here and took to her. I asked her to foster Cookie for a few
days and a miracle happened...she kept her!
I know it is challenging with this little fireball, but in the long
run, she will make a great companion.
Cookie is a two year
old mix of some sort. Our best guess
is Pittie/Boxer/Boston Terrier. She is very friendly and there is no
aggression with other animals. We do
not have cats, but I doubt she would bother them but if that is the
primary concern, please pass. Also,
she is waiting to be spayed but is up to date on all shots
and heartworm negative. Cookie
is lively but settles down nicely in the house.
Adopted *** Leo, Lola, Mr.
D, Sadie and Gracie *** Adopted
These five puppies are too adorable for words! They are Poodle/Shih Tzu mixes and all
five are happily placed in their new homes.
Two went to a friend who named them Leo and Lola, and she drove the
other male, Mr. D all the way to New Mexico to her twin sister! Then the other two in the litter went
together to friends of ours. They
are now Sadie and Gracie. I know
puppies are a big effort, but so far these cuties are doing fine!
Adopted *** Huck *** Adopted
Huckleberry was relinquished by an owner who had him since he
was a puppy and now he is 7 years old.
We worried he would not get many adoptions but the apps just kept
rolling in! He is now with his new owner who adopted a SCARS dog years ago
and he is going to be very spoiled!
Adopted *** Lucy *** Adopted
My daughter is a sucker for Rat Terriers so when this little
gal came along, I just knew she would want to adopt her. For some reason she fell in love with
this breed probably years ago when I rescued a wiry little gal named
Squirt. Next came Scooter and then
Pinky and now Lucy! So all is well
in Lucy's world now....and she has a sister Pinky to play with and a big, big
sister named Belle.
Adopted *** Toby *** Adopted
I was quite upset when I got an email saying a family was
returning Toby the next day after three years! Wow...no warning. We were too full, it was too hot and I
had no room. So, I thought of a
woman looking for a medium sized dog and jumped on the bandwagon. I bundled
him into the car, drove to the other side of town and she loved him. They
are still together and all is well and I look at his adoption as a flat out
