Meet Critical Care Patient: Spunky Brewster

We’d like to introduce you to one of our newest Critical Care Program patients, Spunky Brewster.

Little Spunky Brewster - SCAR CCP

Spunky is one of the 15 dogs we rescued from an Amish puppy mill. This poor girl needed to have dental surgery because she had moderate to severe dental disease. This sadly occurs from years of neglect and a lack of veterinary care. Spunky’s medical exam also revealed that she was obese and had luxating patellas. Despite her luxating patellas, the doctors are holding off on knee surgery since she is still very mobile. We are hoping that a proper diet will get Spunky down to a healthy weight, which will relieve the stress on her knees. Spunky is very shy and nervous from a lack of human interaction, but she is slowly earning our trust and will come to us with loving words of encouragement!

We are very hopeful for Spunky! 

These are Spunky’s photos before and after photos from her surgery. We warn you that some of the photos are graphic. We would like to give a big thank you to Ani-Care Animal Hospital for their amazing work and for taking care of our little babies.

Rosie Stopped By Sunset Park today! :)

SCAR Grad Rosie came to visit us at our Sunset Park shelter this weekend! Our staff was very happy to see this sweet girl, who was adopted after spending months in our shelter. Rosie had very bad mange and was a patient in our Critical Care Program. Now this beautiful girl has an amazing family to call her own and she looks better than ever! 

Rosie stopped by today!

We are only able to give dogs like Rosie a second chance with your support. Please consider making a donation so we can continue helping animals in need.

We are one of very few rescues who take in the most difficult medical cases. We do it because no one else will. Other rescues, the city’s Animal Control and our neighbors look to us for help and support. We are however beginning to reach our financial boundaries and are preparing to scale down our critical care program in the near future. This means that we will only take in the animals that are already adoptable. Not the ones that truly need us. With your generous donations, hundreds of critically injured animals who would otherwise not be given a chance could be saved and given a second chance at life.

Any assistance you can provide to our rescue would be greatly appreciated.

Top Reasons to Adopt
Adopt, don’t shop

Great reasons to adopt and not buy a pet!

1. You’ll save two
By adopting from SCAR you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal that you’ve opened up a cage for. There’s very limited cage space at SCAR but we never euthanize healthy adoptables so if you’re not ready to adopt yet, don’t fret. lives!

2. You’ll know what you’re getting
We provide complete medical care and screen animals for specific temperaments and behaviors and match them specific adoptors to make sure each family finds the right pet for their lifestyle.

3. You’ll save money
The entire adoption fee at SCAR is less expensive than buying a pet. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, microchip and provide all other necessary veterinary care up until adoption. You will receive all available medical records when you adopt. This makes adoption a real bargain.

4. You’ll help raise awareness
Help us teach your family and neighbors about the high levels of euthanasia in shelters and how they can make a difference! Just tell them your story and what you learn from us.

5. A pet is good for your health
Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally, and physically beneficial. Dog walking, pet grooming, and even petting provide increased physical activity that can help strengthen the heart, improve circulation, and slow the loss of bone tissue. Caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment and lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation in all age groups.

6. You won’t be supporting puppy mills and pet stores
Puppy mills are “factory style” dog-breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Most dogs raised in puppy mills are housed in shockingly poor conditions with improper medical care, and the parents of the puppies are kept in cages to be bred over and over for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever joining a family. And after they’re no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discarded—either killed, abandoned or sold at auction.

RESCUED! Amish Puppy Mill dogs in SCAR Critical Care Program

Hello everyone, we’d like to introduce you to the newest patients of our Critical Care Program, Amish Puppy Mill dogs.


This past weekend, we rescued about 15 dogs from an Amish Puppy Mill. These poor dogs were left in deplorable conditions and used as breeders until they were no longer ‘useful’ and dumped. They are another case of loving dogs from a puppy mill that had been neglected, abused and not properly cared for. These innocent babies are currently in terrible condition. They are very underweight and very scared. Their fur is severely matted with feces. These pups have a strong odor of ammonia because they were left to sit in their own urine. They have sores on their bodies from being left in a filthy environment where they received no love, attention or care. They are the victims of neglect and suffering. These dogs did not ask for this, but this is unfortunately what happens in the cruel world of puppy mills. Luckily, these babies are now safe with us and we will provide them with the medical care they need and the love they deserve. Because of their conditions, they will need a lot of vet care, grooming and additional work to help socialize them.

Please share these innocent pups story and if you are able to donate anything towards their care, we would be very grateful. We are only able to take these severe cases of abuse and neglect into our Critical Care Program with the help of good folks like you.

Sean Casey Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization – EIN: 35-2244558. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please help us in providing these unfortunate dogs with the second chance they all deserve:
