(November to present)
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 *** Luna ** Adopted
Luna hit the jackpot. Several years ago a wonderful woman adopted
a dog from us who is now Belle. Belle is a tri color aussie
and Luna is also, but much smaller. When I got the email that this person
wanted to adopt Luna for Belle's little
sister, I was ecstatic. They love each other and play endlessly. Hopefully
that will take some pressure off of mom on a cold winter night when walks
aren't very appealing!!
Adopted *** Mia ** Adopted
Mia came to us
in very sad shape as she was covered in mange. Our foster took her in, bathed her and
SCARS paid for her medical needs. In
time Mia bloomed into a beautiful little dog and was recently adopted by a
family with another Chihuahua and a little girl to love her.
Mia is a two year old, spayed Chihuahua mix weighing about 10
lbs. She came to us in very bad
shape, but has made a wonderful turn around. She is quiet and shy, but loves people
once she gets to know you. She lives
peaceably with other dogs and cats and will make someone a loving
Adopted *** Buck ** Adopted
Buck was fostered for SCARS and was not young. Our foster felt he was too big for her
family, but kept him so we could have more information. She found him to be almost perfect...housebroken,
not a chewer or jumper. He lucked out and the perfect couple came
along who loves boxers and wanted one who was already tested!!
Buck is now happily settled in his new digs.
Buck is a 6 year old purebred Boxer. He weighs 55 lbs,
is neutered and totally housebroken.
Buck can be left in the house all day and never have an accident,
nor chew anything up. He is also
very protective and will bark ferociously if any stranger comes
around. Please consider taking
this wonderful dog into your family.
Adopted *** Shiloh ** Adopted
remember having so many applications on one dog as we have had on
Shiloh!! It has been a hard decision
but she is nicely settled in her new home.
So far the news is great and she is fitting in well and enjoying
lots of attention. Fortunately there
are no chickens there for her to terrorize!
Shiloh is a five month old, female St Bernard/Shepherd
mix. She is spayed and close to
being housebroken. Shiloh is timid
but sweet and loving. She is fine
with cats and other dogs, and is well behaved in the house. Good guess for her ultimate weight is
probably 60 lbs??
Her coat is so fluffy it looks like Angora. She is a real cutie pie.
Adopted *** Ernie ** Adopted
Ernie was in an isolated shelter in Missouri with limited
resources. Very few volunteers
worked there, and they had no means to advertise. A friend contacted me and asked if we
would take him as he was so sweet.
Couple after couple met him and turned him down. For some reason, he would growl and that
did not go over well. Finally, the right family met Ernie and he behaved
himself and is doing great. There is the right home for every dog, it takes
patience on our part, and the dog's part also. So glad he waited for his
Ernie is a three year old mix - probably some sort of
Retriever. It would be unfair to try
to figure it out without doing a MARS test, so we will just have to
guess! He is around 3 years old,
neutered, 38 lbs, and housebroken and has a
wonderful, gentle personality.
If you are looking for a family dog who loves kids, and will
sit at your feet and watch TV he is the dog for you.
Adopted *** Koda ** Adopted
Koda has a rough
start in life like so many dogs who come here. His family was Army and dad was
posted to Korea, and mom moved in with family - Koda
was not invited. Then he was adopted
to a couple who did not have another dog, and that did not work. So back he came again one rainy Saturday
night. BUT…the winds were in his favor and a family with four kids, another
lively dog and a fenced yard met him and loved him, and took him home!! He
is doing great and loves his buddy, Otis.
I think this is a great picture of the two of them and when I saw
it, it brought tears to my eyes.
That is a Merry Christmas for sure!
This is me, Koda, in the yard at SCARS watching my family drive
away. My heart is broken. I loved them very much, but dad is
heading for South Korea (Army) and mom and my baby brother have to move in
with Grandma to a place that does not allow dogs. Maybe I should have dressed up like a
cat! Maureen grew up in a military
family and she explained that this was a hard decision for the family but
they looked for a long time to find just the right place for me. I am neutered,
housebroken, weigh around 40 lbs, am 6 months
old, and am a good boy. If you would like to adopt me so that I will have
my very own family again, please call 785-256-2976. Love, Koda
Adopted *** Minie and Moe ** Adopted
Minnie and Mo
were quite the popularity kids! We
had a lot of applications on them....all good. One couple got in the car and drove
several hours to meet them, gave us a deposit and went home. I checked them out carefully (she is a
high school teacher which puts her on top of my list!) and all looked
good. Two days later these two
cuties headed for their new home and the news is all good!!!
Mo and Minnie
are father and daughter. He is
around 4 or 5 years old, and Minnie is two. They are purebred miniature
dachshunds and weigh around ten pounds.
They are spayed and neutered and I have no idea if they are
housebroken, although former owners said yes. However, the former owners do not seem to
know much about them! We have had them to the vet and all fixed up, and now
they are ready to go. We would like
to see them go together as they are a bonded pair, but might be able to be
adopted separately. We have not decided for sure.
Adopted *** Fiona (aka Kiowa) ** Adopted
Fiona (aka Kiowa) has gone off to her new home. This family deserves a lot of credit as
Fiona had not been an inside dog before and they had a challenge ahead of
them. So far she is adapting well to
being a family companion. Fiona had
a rough start in life, but her gentle personality and loving spirit is
winning over prior adversity. We are
hoping she is in her forever home.
Fiona has been an amazing transformation since she came
here. She had spent her three years
locked in a kennel, and she was not socialized upon arrival. Months later, she is everyone's favorite. She is loving and gentle, but still a bit
submissive. She walks on a leash
well and appears to be housebroken.
She is spayed, up to date on shots and gentle with everyone. Isn't
Adopted *** Huey and Louie ** Adopted
We received a
phone call on a mother dog and her pups who were not being taken care of,
and responded immediately. The
owners turned the pups over to us and wanted to keep Mom. She was only a year old and had two
litters already. We paid for her to be spayed and returned her to the home,
and brought Huey and Louie to SCARS.
After getting them neutered and up to date on shots, they began to
have fun and be puppies!! In time
the perfect family decided to adopt them together and they are doing great!!
Huey and Louie are 12 week old mixes....mom is a small Husky
mix, dad a small Lab. They are
absolutely adorable and playful. At
this point they weigh about 7 lbs but are just
starting to fill out. They are bonded and play together and sleep
together, and whoever adopts them will have a perfect little pair of
