Adopted*** Marley ***Adopted
Marley was found as a stray by a family in Topeka and , as much as they loved her, they could not keep
her. She needed a bigger yard and an owner with more time for her. I
happened to run into a friend in Jason's Deli one day at lunch, told her
about Marley,and she
said "I will take her!" I almost fell over with joy! Marley's new
mom is a vet tech and lives in the country. She has several canine siblings
and all reports are good!
Adopted*** Charlotte ***Adopted
daughter's dog, Charlotte, kept jumping their fence and running around the
neighborhood, she came to live with Grandma and Grandpa. As much as we loved her, we always felt Charlotte
needed her very own family again.
One of our faithful volunteers told her friend about Charlotte and
we all felt it would be a good match. Charlotte now lives happily with her
new mom and grandma. Mom is a runner
and Charlotte is on the go all of the time between jogging around the lake
and hanging out with grandma when mom is teaching at the local university!
Adopted*** Loki ***Adopted
We were able to
place Loki before he went on our website which is always good news. Loki was running out of time. When the owner called me I had less than
a week to find him a home and since I had someone coming to look at one of
our dogs, I suggested she consider Loki instead. The adoption was perfect! Loki gets along great with her chocolate
lab and her cat! He is a gorgeous
purebred, registered, German Shepherd and I wish I
had more adoptions move this fast and smoothly!
Adopted*** Curtis ***Adopted
Curtis has come
a long way from being found running on a gravel road, skinny and
hungry. He was brought to our
shelter one hot summer day in bad shape.
After having his medical needs addressed, he became part of the
SCARS family. Along came a family
who fell in love with him and he went off on a trial adoption and never
came back. He gets along well with
his older canine sibling and the two family cats. The three adorable little girls in the
family have spoiled him and love him as you can see in the pictures. Who knows where he came from? Who knows
what his five months was like before this?
All we know is he now has the kind of home that every dog deserves,
and not many get.
Curtis is a 5 month old, 20 lb, male
mix of some sort. He is possibly a
Chocolate Lab/Aussi mix but this guy is a true
Heinz 57 variety which makes him even cuter. He has now had his shots and is neutered.
Curtis was found running down a dirt road and no one ever claimed him. He is very sweet, loves everyone and will
need some training!
Adopted*** Vinny and Roxy ***Adopted
When I got a phone call from a woman I could tell was going to
be a fabulous owner, I thought "why don't I get more of
these?" She wanted TWO dogs...woohoo. After
discussing her yard, etc, we decided she should
meet Vinny and Roxy. Vinny
had been returned from his last home because his escape artist tricks were
wearing thin. Roxy had been living here since she first arrived and,
despite the fact that she is beautiful, had not been adopted. Yesterday I went to visit them and found
them vigorously chasing a squirrel (he eluded them leaping from the tree to
the roof) in their yard. Mom says
they play endlessly then flop in the living room to rest and begin again. We really hit the jackpot on this one!!!.
Roxy is a 6 month old, 18 lb, female, Shiba Inu mix. She is spayed, up to date on shots, and
great with kids and dogs. Our
neighbor found her starved along the highway and nursed her back to
health. However, they cannot keep
her any longer and she is here at SCARS learning to play and be a dog. Isn't she a cutie pie?
Adopted*** Bella ***Adopted
Bella has gone
off to a wonderful family. One of
her new human brothers is a former student of mine and he and his older
brother are spoiling her rotten. She
has a canine brother whom she chases around the house. Bella is the perfect Christmas dog
sitting under the tree. Since she almost died from starvation, she is
doubly lucky to be happy and alive in her forever home.
Bella is a 2 year old, female, boxer mix. She was transferred from another shelter
as a starvation case. She and her
sibling barely survived but SCARS took one dog, and another rescue the
sister. Since then, Bella has put on
weight, learned to trust people, and loves to play with other dogs. She is gentle, housebroken, and now a
healthy, happy dog!! She does not
have a hat on....that is a skeleton for Halloween behind her head!! It sort
of looks like a crown.
