Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: starfish smallMarooned on the beach by the tide, thousands of starfish were dying.  Seeing their plight, a young beachcomber began picking them up, one by one, throwing them back into the water.  Watching this seemingly futile effort, an observer remarked, “There are thousands of starfish out here. You can’t possibly make a difference.”  The young man picked up another starfish and, tossing it back into the waves, said, “It made a difference to that one.”

 

At SCARS, this is our philosophy.  When people tell us we can’t possibly save them all, we simply tell the starfish story.  And with your help and support, we will continue making a difference to each and every one of our dogs.

We work to provide love, shelter, and veterinary care to abused and abandoned dogs in the eastern Kansas area.   It is our mission to find them a permanent, loving and healthy home, or temporary accommodations until a permanent home becomes available.   All of our dogs are assessed and treated by a vet immediately upon arrival.  Shots are updated, and the dogs are neutered or spayed prior to joining the rest of our friends.

 

 

SCARS is featured in the April edition of Cesar’s Way.  This is Cesar Milan’s (The Dog Whisperer) magazine, of and about dogs.  See our article on page 26 and 28.

Many thanks to Dona-Rose Hackerott, herself, and her family and friends for generously supporting SCARS.  Following Donna's wishes, donations upon her death were to be provided to our dog rescue in remembrance of her lifelong love of dogs.  Donna Rose lost her sight at the age of 12 and , as she once told us, her first guide dog gave "her wings."  Her life was one of joy and adventure....a role model for us all.
