You must live for a cause greater than yourself ~ My father, Edward Michael Luby, Captain, USN, was guided by these words taught to young midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy which he later passed down to my sister and me. I found my cause 40 years ago when I brought two abandoned dogs from the streets of Puerto Rico to the states and began my journey in animal welfare. The Second Chance Animal Refuge Society (SCARS) is a 501 (c) (3) no kill dog shelter located on 50 acres on the edge of the Kansas Flinthills. Homeless and abandoned dogs for miles around are treated for medical problems, exercised, socialized, and eventually adopted to forever homes. If they are never chosen for adoption they remain here where they are cared for and loved. This journey has ushered over 1000 dogs on the road to SCARS. These are just a few of their heroic stories.
