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*** Crystal ***Adopted
Crystal was another dog found running along a country
road...where do all these little guys come from? And why does no one claim them? We wonder if they are dumped, but
they won't tell us! So, she was
taken to SCARS, settled in and spayed and socialized. I thought she
would be adopted right away because she is so pretty, but as time went
on, it seemed there was just not a good choice. Finally the perfect family found her and
decided to adopt this cutie pie. As
you can see from the picture, she is loved by a little boy and she also has
parents who love her and an older dog to follow around!! We are so happy for her...what a
great Christmas present!
Crystal is a 2 year old, white, female Chihuahua mix. She weighs 10 lbs
and is super friendly and beautiful.
Crystal wants to be a lap dog and follow her people around the
house! She was found wandering down
a country road, covered in fleas (all gone now!!) and was found by a caring
family who could not keep her. She
is spayed and gets along well with everyone...dogs, adults and kids. I know she will be a wonderful addition
to a family.
Adopted*** Manny ***Adopted
Manny was a "problem child" at several shelters and
we were asked to take him in and exercise him so he could calm down. He was beautiful, for sure, but a hand
full. Manny settled in and ran the
50 acres and became a part of our family. However, we knew it would have to
be a special family to work with him.
Fortune was on our side, and along came a family who loves him and
is working with him. He has 10 acres, horses, cats and chickens
to entertain himself! Fingers
and paws crossed he will live there forever!
Manny is a memorable, male, Great Dane mix. He is neutered and housebroken. Manny has been asked to leave two
shelters and one prison program for training, dubbed too hyper for
management!! So, we took him in with
great concern. The one good thing is
we were assured he showed no aggression towards people or animals, and this
is definitely true. The first week
was crazy as we learned he will not be kenneled without protest...and this
means a HUGE kennel with a doghouse.
So, we gave up and let him run the 50 acres. He can outrun the Gator and is not sure
about the pond. We are learning that he LOVES to be inside as part of the
gang and wants his people to notice and adore him! I think of him as a silly goofball, who
is very loveable. He weighs about
80 pounds which is mostly legs.
In truth, he will be a fun dog to have as a member of an active and
Adopted*** Lucy ***Adopted
Lucy is a
gorgeous chocolate Lab mix puppy and she has gold eyes!! The family who adopted her is very active
in sports and wanted a dog who they could run with and would enjoy
outside activities. She wiggles
so much, the picture is blurry, but she is doing just great and it
looks like she has found her forever home!
Lucy is a gorgeous 5 month old, female, Chocolate Lab mix. She is spayed, housebroken, and loves
everyone! Lucy is so darn cute that whoever
adopts her will have a fabulous companion.
She is presently living with a few cats, a few dogs and a few
people. Lucy was abandoned in an
apartment but her luck has changed and she is anxiously waiting for her new
Adopted*** Mattie ***Adopted
Mattie was found along a dirt road and so heavily matted,
she was unrecognizable as a dog. She
resembled a swamp monster!! So, we
had her groomed, some growths removed, got her spayed and her shots and she
turned out to be the cutest thing ever!!
Along came a woman and her little girl and they decided Mattie would
be a perfect fit in their little family and she is! The news is glowing and we get pictures
of her smiling for the camera!!
Adopted*** Captain (aka Nugget) ***Adopted
Captain (aka Nugget) went to a fabulous home on 180 acres
today! His new canine sister looks
so much like him, it is amazing. He
has the run of acres of rolling hills and pastures and can look forward to
such a wonderful life. We are so
blessed to have so many good people who adopt our dogs. Thank you so much to this couple for
giving this precious dog a loving, safe home!!!
Captain was adopted from SCARS when he was three
months old. He seemed so small, but as time went by, he
grew....and grew....and grew. The
end result was that he came back because he was "too big!!" He is now 70 lbs,
neutered, up to date on shots, and a gentle giant. Captain is some kind of mix...maybe
Pyrenees, maybe Brittany spaniel.
Whatever, he is gorgeous.
Captain is housebroken and came from a family with small children
and cats so he is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!
Adopted*** Shortie ***Adopted
We really thought Shortie was here
for good since she has some interesting quirks! However, one of our staff
decided it was time he and Shortie made it legal
and he has adopted her. Shortie is now spoiled rotten and spends much of
her time luxuriating in bed watching TV. We find her new outfit to be most
fetching...a pink sweater coat with a fancy fringe. You go girl.
Adopted*** Hazel ***Adopted
Hazel came to us with her mom who had been on a chain most of
her life. Hazel was one of a litter
of gorgeous Australian Shepherd mix pups.
SCARS took one pup and mom home, and the rest went to a rescue and
have been adopted. Good friends saw
her picture and felt she would be a good match for their family and she
is!! She has a canine sister, Lulu,
and two little girls to shower her with love.
Adopted*** Angel ***Adopted
I got a call one
day from a local man who was looking for a home for his grandson's dog. The
dog, Angel, was living with his new grandpa, but grandpa wanted to
travel....without a dog! So, I drove
over and met the dog who is absolutely adorable. The next day one of my former
students, now a teacher, came over with a few of her fellow teachers. One was looking for a dog as a companion
and running partner. Woohoo...Angel
popped into my head and off we went.
It was love at first sight and Angel now has her very own home and
two people to love and protect!
Adopted*** Nikki ***Adopted
Nikki has gone
off to a wonderful home, thanks to the Lawrence Humane Society. They contacted us about a "problem
child" and we decided to trade.
I knew their county was pit friendly and Nikki would get more
exposure. We had exercised her for months and she calmed down and became a
wonderful candidate for some family.
No sooner did Nikki land in Lawrence, that she got adopted. The staff there loved her because she
looked like a piggy! No pictures, just good news!!
Nikki is a two year old Staffordshire Terrier. She weighs around 80 lbs
and is spayed and housebroken. Nikki
is not aggressive with dogs or people, we have no information on cats. She was in a shelter where every town had
a ban on bully breeds and she languished in a cement run for far too
long. SCARS took her in and here she
has been able to swim in the pond, meet people and run off her energy. We do not recommend a family who has a
lot of trees with low branches as she will jump and jump to try to grab
them! We would also recommend a
family with a member in it who has big muscles...this dog is strong although
she walks well on a leash!
Adopted*** Toby ***Adopted
Toby was picked
up by animal control and the owners did not want to pay to get him
out. He is a gorgeous purebred Lab
and the vet clinic neutered him and got him fixed up with all of his shots. I actually posted him on Facebook and the
applications came rolling in!!! A
great family adopted him and the only picture I have that is not blurred
was taken at the vet's office!
Toby is a beautiful purebred blonde lab. He is two years old, neutered,
housebroken, and weighs about 35 lbs.
Toby gets along great with all dogs and people. His owners declined to pay for his bail
when he escaped from the yard (he is not a runner here) and so he needs a
new home! Toby weighs about 60 lbs and loves to play and swim in the pond. He is a real gem....you will love him!
Adopted*** Rosie ***Adopted
Rosie was found by the landlord of a rental house one very hot
summer day. She was without food, water or electricity and time was
running short. We took her in and
found out what a loving and adorable little dog she could be. SCARS got her spayed and updated all
of her shots - and before we could post her, she got adopted by a wonderful
retired woman who adores her. We
love happy endings!!!
