It's been another busy month and we are a bit late with our monthly update. During September, SCARS brought into care 125 animals (56 dogs and 69 cats) and rehomed 154 (72 dogs and 82 cats). We also transferred 11 animals to partner organizations and continued with our spay-neuter-return program.

You can help animals in need by choosing to adopt, donating and supporting our events. The animals need you!

Rescue Stories 

Here are just some of this month's rescue stories. First there is Little Tyke (top left image) who had been hit by a car. Then there is Lil Rock (top right) who came into our care with canine parvovirus. Next we have Miss Mink (bottom left) who came into care with an infection in her mouth and kittens in tow. And finally, there is Tigress (bottom right) who came into care sick and injured.
