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*** Timber ***Adopted
Timber was bought by a couple who almost immediately decided
they had no time for him. He had
until 2:00 to be rescued, or off to a shelter. We got him around noon and he settled in
nicely with one of our fosters and became part of
the family. Wow…applications were coming in fast and furiously, but we feel
he found the perfect home and, as you can see, he is being spoiled rotten!!
Timber is a ten week old, male, Australian Shepherd mix. He weighs 12 lbs
and will be neutered soon. He has
had his first round of puppy shots, and is an adorable, loveable, huggable
little guy. Don't you just love his
coloring? His owners actually bought him and then decided they had no room
for him. I think he will be a
perfect addition to some lucky family.
Adopted*** Sprout ***Adopted
Sprout had an interesting beginning! A couple was in the parking lot of a city
shelter and a woman got out of her car carrying a puppy. She stopped them and asked them to hold
it, turned around, got in her car and drove away! Well, they had a dilemma - they did not
want to take it inside, so they took her home knowing they were not in the
market for a puppy. SCARS received
this call, one of our fosters took her in and we
had her medical needs taken care of.
Along came a couple who were not in a parking lot, but on the
computer looking at her picture and decided she was the one for them. They met her, adopted her and
now she has her very own family!
Sprout is a 4 month old female Lab/Sharpei
mix. She is a bundle of energy and
loves everyone. You can see the Sharpei in her cute little face with the wrinkles. She
has had puppy shots and been wormed, but not quite old enough to be spayed
which is right around the corner.
Needless to say, she is a perfect dog....and will make some family a
wonderful lifelong companion.
Adopted*** Bella ***Adopted
transferred from a shelter with BSL in every town in the county. Therefore,
if one is even part pit bull, they cannot be adopted so she and her friends
languished for two years. She had
limited exercise and was not allowed to be with other dogs...."just in
case!" Feeling sorry
for her, we took her and the other pit mix here. Her friend was adopted and Bella
continued to live and play in harmony here at SCARS. Finally, the right couple came along and
fell in love with her and off she went to her new home. All reports are
Bella (brindle) is a 2 1/2 to 3 year old, female, Boxer/Pit
mix. She is spayed, weighs about 45 lbs, and is up to date on shots. Bella was in a rural shelter for over two
years where she languished in a cement run waiting endlessly to be
adopted. She was not allowed to play
with other dogs and only got out when a volunteer came. The amazing thing about this adorable
dog, is she is still loving and sweet.
Her time here has been spent rolling in the grass, playing with
other dogs and discovering that life can be good.
Adopted*** Junior and
Junior and Jackson lucked out!
We really wanted them to go together, but finding the right home who
would take them both seemed to take forever! Finally a wonderful family came to meet
them and decided to adopt them together.
They are so adorable and so far they are happily residing in
their new home!
Aren't we just too cute for words? We are both about 9 lbs, neutered, and up to date on shots. Junior is 1 1/2 yrs
old and Jackson a year old. Out foster thinks we are West Highland Terrier
Mix (maybe some Scottie there, too).
We are very social - we live with several other dogs and get along
great. We can be adopted together or
separately, as long as we are loved and spoiled!
Adopted*** Oreo ***Adopted
Oreo was taken care of by one of our great fosters!! One night she called and said he was
sick, and the first thing we all think of is parvo. UGH..he
spent several days on IV fluids and we all prayed like crazy. Finally, Oreo got well and nothing has
slowed him down since. He was,
however, waiting for a family of his very own and along it came!! Now he
has a teenager to cuddle and adore him, and a great mom. We love happy
Adopted*** Jack and Jill ***Adopted
While we were on
a very short, and very rare vacation, two beautiful pups were brought to
our place. Well, that's what happens
when the owners go away. What could
we say??? They had nowhere to
go, the landlord said OUT that very day, so they arrived, a boy and a
girl. Wow..what cuties.
Rarely do we find homes for two dogs together and rarely do we find
homes fast. That is why we are still stunned that these two have been
adopted together and by a fabulous family with three little girls to love
and spoil them. It does not get any better than this!
Adopted*** Mabel (now known as Skye) ***Adopted
Mabel was not doing well in a nearby shelter and the director
suggested she have a change of environment where she could bloom! She came to SCARS and ended up with a
great foster and she did indeed find her own personality. Several homes fell through but Mabel was
undaunted. She knew her forever
family would come soon and they did...all the way from Oklahoma. The fun part is they picked her up
in their private plane and off she flew....out of OZ to Oklahoma where her
name is now Skye. All reports are good
and we are grateful to this wonderful family for their love and devotion to
this special dog
Mabel is a wonderful four year old Boxer. She is spayed, house broken and gets
along well with cats and other dogs.
She loves kids but does not like stairs. We think she is afraid of them and in
time, will get the hang of it. Mabel
is a bit plump and weighs about 50 lbs.
However, she has assured us she has lots of energy and can outwalk
her new owner, whoever it might be.
Adopted*** Benny ***Adopted
Benny came to us
from the son of old friends of SCARS.
He had a new job traveling and could no longer take care of
Benny. I honestly thought he would
be instantly adopted because he was young, got along with dogs and people
and was beautiful. But time went by
and the right family did not show up.
I decided to post his picture on my Facebook account and the
son of a colleague at school alerted his parents. I could not have wished for a better
home. Benny is settling in nicely
and has a few bad habits to correct (killing rabbits) so he will not
be in the "doghouse." We
know he is loved and safe.
Benny will be
two years old in a few months.
He is neutered, housebroken, good with kids
and other dogs. His dad got a new job and is on the road most of the week
leaving Benny without adequate exercise and company. Benny is a beautiful black Labrador
Retriever mix with a chocolate sheen when he is in the sun. He weighs 50 lbs
and is having a blast running on our 50 acres and swimming in the
pond. Whoever gets him will have a
great companion and we all know what good pets Labs can be.
Adopted*** Ginger (now known as Roxy) ***Adopted
Soldier Girl came to us several months ago from a rural shelter
where she was kept in a cement run for over two years. Her life was sad and lonely with little
hope of being adopted since she has a touch of pit bull and they have BSL
in the area. I received an email
from someone begging us to get her and her friend (they were never allowed
to play with other dogs just in the event they MIGHT be aggressive) as soon
as possible. SCARS took them in and
we fell in love with these two brave souls who still had faith in the human
race. Soldier Girl became Ginger and
went to a foster who named her Marilyn because she has a beauty mark
on her face like Marilyn Monroe.
And then it happened....the perfect family came along and saw what a
remarkable and loving dog she is. I
wonder how she keeps track of all of her names, but the winner is Roxy
which suits her perfectly. Her red hair makes her the perfect Roxanne!
Miracles still happen and surely this is one!
Ginger, was stuck in a rural shelter with little
socialization. She is a red nosed,
Pit mix, weighing about 45 lbs. She is also enjoying her stay here but
is in need of a “forever home”.
Adopted*** Archie ***Adopted
little Archie? He had a tummy so
full of worms we thought he might pop, but the vet fixed him up and he is
all better now. In the meantime, his
forever family came along, adopted him and we are getting all kinds of
great news about him! He even has
his own KU kennel and is doing great with his potty
