Our Dearly Departed Friends

 

These beautiful dogs lived out the final days of their lives as residents at the SCARS compound.  They were part of the SCARS family, enjoying a loving, and comfortable environment – many after coming from terrible circumstances. 

We will miss them all.

ALEX

 

 

Alex came to us in very bad shape.  He had been shaved too close and infection had set in. It took months of antibiotics and vitamins to turn him around.  Then there was the thyroid deficiency, the collapsed trachea and the chronic cough.  Through it all he remained cheerful and happy...a role model to us all.  Finally old age crept in and he succumbed to the ravages of time and died peacefully curled up in my bathrobe in his favorite laundry basket.

 

Priscilla

 

 

Prissy was incredible. She also came to us as a senior citizen and beat all of the old age odds. We thought she would live forever, but one day  she just gave out. Although a tiny soul, we all still look for her.

SAILOR

 

 

Sailor came to us as a senior citizen.  He was brought to a city shelter old, tired and having been attacked by another dog.  We took him in and healed his wounds and adored him for the few short years we had him. In fact, he stole all of our hearts and letting him go was incredibly hard.

scooter

 

 

Description: Description: scooter1

 

Scooter was with us for almost 13 years. She was found on a dirt road and we brought her here. She died quietly one afternoon and the vet said her heart just gave out.

 

Sebastian

 

Sebastian passed away quietly during the early morning hours of Mother's Day at his home of 13 years.  He was the patriarch of this sanctuary, and adored by all who met him. He was the embodiment of the rescue dog who rose above his adversities to become the ambassador for all those without hope.

Sebastian - Sebastian is a 12 year old St Bernard who came to us as a starvation case.  He is now 200 lbs so that is no longer a problem!  He suffers from a rare congenital defect having to do with his nasal passage which has hemorrhaged twice.  When that happens, he must have emergency surgery.  We hope he is now past the danger of it happening again, but we cannot be sure.  He also now has arthritis and has a limp, but is enjoying life on our couch most of the time!!

 

Pepe

 

Description: Description: pepe1

June 12, 2015 - It is with great sadness I report that my beloved friend, Pepe, (in picture) passed away quietly yesterday.  He was about 15 years old and quite the fighter.  In his day, he was the alpha dog of SCARS and loved by all...especially me. 

Madison

 

 

Friend and companion of 15 years.  He passed away on Jan 5,2015

 

JILL

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: jill sponsor1.jpg

Jill finally succumbed to her incessant seizures.  We’re very sad to see her move on to the Rainbow Bridge.

 

Jill - Picked up staggering down the road

in over 100 degree heat in July.  Matted and covered with fleas, some wonderful people helped get her in the car. She began having seizures from heat stroke.  Here she is after being rushed to the vet where she was being shaved and treated for a variety of ills.  Jill could barely lift her head for days and it was weeks before she had the strength to do much more than a slow walk. The vet feels she may be as old as ten, but she doesn't look it. She now chases me on the four wheeler around the pond!

Goldie

 

Goldie passed quietly on an October morning in Kansas where she had lived with her beloved family.  Rob Richardson was her only remaining family member and he did not feel it was fair for her to be shipped overseas to his home at her age.  A kind family in Kansas took her in after her "mom" passed and loved and protected her until the end of her days.

Phoebe

 

 

After 19 years our beloved Phoebe finally wore out. Her younger years were spent racing up and down the gravel road and her antics brought her fame in the neighborhood. We loved her greatly and will still look for her in her favorite spots

- ROMEO -

 

Description: romeo and me1

 

On March 26, 2008, Romeo lost his final battle. Never has a dog fought more valiantly to live, nor has any dog ever been loved by so many people.  He touched every heart with his gentle and loving nature. We rescued him too late to undo the damage from the prolonged starvation and lack of care.  But he knew finally how much he was loved and he died peacefully - but too soon.  He will never be forgotten.

-------

Read his story below:

 

Description: romeo3-1

Romeo - cruelty case. When SCARS got him, we immediately took him to the vet. On IV's for complications of starvation for two weeks and now on antibiotics and enzymes. Weighed 8 lbs when we got him, and should have weighed at least 20 lbs. Unable to  digest his food properly because of the prolonged starvation.

 

Despite all of this, he remains cheerful and determined to live. His medical bills will continue to add up, but we are determined to give him every chance to live a life he was denied.

Ollie left us on May 21, 2008.  He was a very noble dog, and had been through a great deal of trauma prior to arriving at SCARS.  He has been a total joy to have with us and will be sorely missed.  See his story from the 2006 Newsletter here.
