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*** Mama (now known as Kash) ***Adopted
Christmas miracle!!! Remember Mama
Boxer who was rescued from a drug group and given to us at eight
months....pregnant? She had her
beautiful 6 puppies who were all adopted, but the right home just did not
come along for her. Everyone adored
her, including us, so we held out for the perfect family. Santa knew just who that would be and Mama
(now named Kash) is settled safely with four
boys, a boxer brother named King and two parents who love her. To see our dogs in loving families reminds me why we do what we
do...and I am going to throw in a plug here which I do not normally do! Last summer Steve Bonner brought the boys
in the basketball team he coaches, the Kansas Hogs, to SCARS. They had so much fun and the dogs had a
blast. Kudos to Steve for his
dedication and commitment to these great kids. AND, many thanks to Steve and his adorable
family for coming back to SCARS when they decided it was time for King to
have a sibling! Merry Christmas to
Mama needs a real name!
All of her puppies are happily adopted and now it is her turn. She is about a year old, housebroken and
spayed. She was a perfect mother, gentle and understanding and all of her
pups have the same sweet disposition.
Mama is a boxer mix and weighs about 40 lbs. She is friendly with everyone and shows
no aggression. She will make a wonderful companion.
Adopted*** Eva ***Adopted
Eva came to us with her pups after having been chained for two
years of her short life. This was
her second litter and the pups were gorgeous. A local rescue took four and
we kept one with her mama. The pup, Hazel, was adopted and we
waited for the perfect family for Eva. We began to think this gorgeous girl would
never get adopted but along came the best family ever!!! She has lots of
grandkids to protect and a family who loves her. The grapevine says she is
Eva is a 2 1/2
year old female, spayed, Brittany Spaniel mix. She is gentle and loving and
weighs 58 lbs. Eva lived on a farm
where she had to be on a chain, and the neighbor dog kept visiting and she
has had two gorgeous litters, but this is now over. Eva can now be a young dog who enjoys a
life of freedom. She is wonderful
with kids and adults, and shows no aggression at all with other dogs. We think she is absolutely beautiful, and
you will also when you meet her.
Adopted*** Stewie ***Adopted
When I first met
Stewie, I just shook my head. His home was a mess
and he was timid, not to mention he never had any medical care....no shots,
not neutered, nothing. But, at least
his owner had the decency to reach out for a better future for him, and he
got it. He went to our foster who
taught him to love and be loved in return.
He played with other dogs, and became the dog he was supposed to
be...happy and healthy. Now he has
his very own family for Christmas!
He has a doggie brother, a teenage brother and a mom to spoil
him. Thank you Santa, I am glad you
read Stewie's letter!
Adopted*** Maggie ***Adopted
got her Christmas wish!!! First she
was being starved and neglected before she was rescued, then she was
adopted by a family who brought her back after more than a year but we will
not go into why... She needed time
to settle back down and become the dog she was before she left here, which
helped her get ready for her new home.
Good vibes with this family - they are gentle and understanding and
think she is beautiful, which she is, inside and out. Merry Christmas and thank you Santa for
an early Christmas present!!
Maggie is a 2 year old, female Basset mix. She is spayed and housebroken. Maggie
came from a family with several young children and is totally non
aggressive. She weighs about 40 lbs and is a wonderful, gentle companion. She should not be around rabbits, but
other than that, we think she is just about perfect!!!
Adopted*** Romeo ***Adopted
Although Romeo is a Jack Russell Terrier mix, he is not the
hyper type as are most of them. So,
Romeo settled in comfortably with a SCARS foster and their dogs and cats.
We thought he would be adopted fast, but several families came to meet him
and he was not adopted...although nothing he did was wrong! Finally, the right family saw him as a
perfect fit, adopted him and took him home.
Romeo is a 2 year old, neutered, Jack Russell Terrier. He is absolutely adorable and not hyper
like so many of them. He is
presently residing in one of our foster homes with several dogs and a few
cats, kids and adults. He has passed
the test on getting along well with everyone. Romeo weighs 30 lbs and is really a fun dog. He will be a great
companion for a family!
Adopted*** Sacha and
This is a true
story of a Christmas miracle. Two
dogs with "issues" were looking at the possibility of not having
their very own family. Thanks to
SCARS, they were both rescued and safe, but they
longed for their very own home and family to love. Faith came from a filthy living
was abandoned and then adopted, but returned. She was discouraged. Faith was shy and not well
I really thought they would be with us forever. But then I answered the phone and began
talking to a woman who wanted to meet Sacha so we set up a time at Petsmart adoption day for her and her husband to meet
this gal. At the same time, she
mentioned loving Aussies so I asked my foster to bring Faith, which was not
going to be easy as Faith does not "get out
much!" However, luck
prevailed and when this fabulous couple met Faith and Sacha, they decided
to take them both!!!!!! So, with trepidation,
they embarked on an adoption of these two pups and the end of the story
is magic. Faith is coming out
of her shell and they heard her very first bark in the other room. When they went to check on her, she was
watching "Pit Bulls and Parolees" on TV and barked at the
screen!! Sacha loves them and
insists on sleeping with them as long as she can touch them in bed and not
be lonely. In addition, they tell me
she "talks" to them. So you see, Sacha and Faith, there really is a Santa
Sacha is a 4 to
5 year old, spayed and housebroken female, of about
50 pounds. She is truly the perfect
dog! Sacha gets along with other
dogs and loves children. She has never had an accident here, is laid back
and happy and would be perfectly content as an only dog. We are not sure of
her breed, but maybe a little bit of Rottie,
Shepherd or mutt??? We really do not
get many dogs as well adjusted as she is, and any family will be fortunate
to bring her in as a loved member of the family.
Adopted*** Cooper ***Adopted
Cooper is an 8 week old mini Aussie, and as cute as he can
get. We lucked out and got him
just as a friend contacted me looking for a dog. I suggested this baby, she
came and met him and decided he was perfect for her family which
includes a canine brother. What can
we say? He is a cuddlebug according to this new
owner and we are sure he will be a joy as a companion.
Adopted*** Juliet and
Christmas miracle has come to SCARS!!
Penney had to be relinquished because her owner was ill. She came here, all 5 lbs
of her, and became best friends with Juliet who had just lost her best
friend, Alex. Along came a family
who wanted to adopt just one dog, and Penney was their choice. I dreaded Juliet being left alone again,
but did not want to deny a good home to Penney. But...when they saw how much the two
girls loved each other, they adopted them both. That is what true animal lovers do!! So Juliet and Penney, as I told Sacha and
Faith, and Manny and so many others lately, there really is a Santa Claus!!
Penney is a one
year old long haired Chihuahua mix.
She is spayed and housebroken and adorable. Penney is not yippy at all and is not an
ankle biter. She weighs 5 lbs and is really a lap dog. Looking for a companion? She is perfect.
