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 *** KiKi ** Adopted
Kiki came to us as, what I call, a "train wreck. She survived hurricane Harvey and
contracted a serious case of mange and heartworms. She had aggression issues with other dogs
and all of this combined ended up as her being labeled
"UNADOPTABLE!" But as we
have learned here, if one is patient, there is truly a home for every dog
and along came a wonderful woman who has taken her in, nursed her back to
health and adopted her. Now Kiki
lives in a beautiful house with a huge fenced yard and grandchildren to
love her. Is she blessed or what?????????
Adopted *** Zoey ** Adopted
In my book,
“Under A Kansas Sky”, there is a story about Honey, a rock carrying
dog! To make a long story short, she
had a grand daughter who ended up at the local humane society and she
wound her way to SCARS. Time went by
and the right home did not happen UNTIL one glorious day the owner's of the famous Marvin of book and movie, ha ha, said he needed a pal. Well, a good looking girlfriend is what
he needed and she has taken over his care and protection. They are good buddies and he succumbs to
her bossiness. Thanks to this wonderful family for providing safety for yet
another soul in need of a home!!
Zoey is the granddaughter of the famous "Rock Star"
in our book, Under A Kansas Sky!
She somehow ended up in the local pound and Honey's original owners
called me to bail her out. She
stayed there for a month and although a HUGE favorite, she did not get
adopted. She is a year old Pit mix,
spayed and housebroken of about 50 lbs, and gets
along great with kids and other dogs.
So far she is behaving herself with the cats in her foster
home. Isn't she too cute for words?
Adopted *** Lebo ** Adopted
Lebo was abandoned in Lebo, Kansas, thus his unoriginal
name! He was so cute, but time went
by and he did not get adopted which confounded all of us. Now we know he was waiting for the
perfect family, and along it came.
Years ago a wonderful young woman volunteered here, went off to
Cornell Vet School and started her own vet practice. Now she is in New York, and came back to
Kansas to visit family AND return with a SCARS dog!! Since she had adopted two dogs many
years ago, I believe she was honoring them by taking yet another from this
sanctuary. Of course, we are
eternally grateful and here is one of her boys with Lebo in his new
home back east!
Lebo (dumped in Lebo, Ks.) is a year old, male, Shepherd
mix. He is neutered, up to date on
shots, and only weighs 35 lbs. (He
looks bigger in the picture!) Lebo
has a lot of energy, loves to run and play with other dogs and gets along
fine with kids and adults. Lebo is
not housebroken yet, but he is smart, and anyone who works will him will be
able to train him fairly fast. We
will continue working on it here also.
He does well on a leash, but loves to run away from you when you
want to catch him. We think he is
Adopted *** Thunder ** Adopted
I really did not
think this gorgeous dog would ever find the right home. He came to us missing hair, having had no
vet care and growling at everyone.
Not a good profile for adoption.
However, as time marched on he mellowed a
bit...started to let me feed and pet him.
In time he even got friendly toward two or three people. Then one day I got an email from a couple
very interested in adopting him...wow.
I could not believe it and they said all of the right things! My favorite was "There are not bad
dogs, only bad owners."
OK...that works for me. They
showed up, spent a couple of hours with him and it was a done deal. He liked them and actually jumped
voluntarily into their car. All
reports are great and it appears Thunder is home!!!!
Thunder is a
gorgeous, male, Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix. He is three years old, neutered and seems
to be housebroken, but no guarantee.
He weighs about 80 lbs and has beautiful
blue eyes. He greets people with a low growl!! Thunder is going to take an experienced,
strong owner. He was confined in an
abandoned house and was isolated to the point he does not trust anyone
initially. Once he knows you, he is
fine. I love him and have no problem
at all with walking him or brushing him.
He needs someone kind and gentle and he will be fine, but also
someone strong. I really think he
would do best as an only dog and he will be a fabulous companion.
Adopted *** Marley ** Adopted
decided, with a baby coming, they did not want to keep an energetic dog so
they called SCARS. I hooked her up
with an old friend and she and her daughter met Marley and made her the new
member of their family. She loves
playing ball and having a youngster to play with really meets her
Adopted *** Clover ** Adopted
Clover was either dumped at a camp at the lake north of Topeka,
or she somehow was lost with her buddy, a black lab. A friend of ours was in the area, took her
to the local humane society, where she sat and was not adopted after a
week. I saw her and thought she was
beautiful and offered to take her here.
Once here we had her spayed and got to know her and before she was
even posted on our website, someone called and asked to meet her. Off we went to her new home where she
stayed and is living happily ever after!!
Adopted *** Jasmine ** Adopted
Jasmine is a
tiny purebred Yorkshire Terrier. She
is the product of a puppy mill and, as a result, not socialized.
Subsequently, she cowers in her cage and is afraid of everything. But the wonderful family who adopted
Lily, has also taken this little precious dog into their home. So far she is still scared, but they are
not giving up hope that they can turn this
around and she will one day be a happy , normal dog.
Adopted *** Rudy (now known as Louie) ** Adopted
Rudy is now Louie. This one
was tough to let go. He is a
purebred Shih Tzu rescued from an auction...puppy mill dog. When he came here I was so tempted to
keep him, but I knew of a family who loves this breed and would give
him a wonderful home. He is now
happily settled with them and has a Shih Tzu sister to play with!!
Adopted *** Ringo ** Adopted
contacted by a local humane society to see if we would take this adorable,
year old dog. He had a spot (tiny) on
his foot that they were unsure about, so he was to be euthanized. We could not let that happen!!! He came to our foster and was a fun and
sweet little dog, and one bath and the spot was gone forever. Now he
is happily settled in his new home and doing just fine.
