Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless animals in Northern Alberta, Canada

We believe that there is a suitable home for all homeless animals: young or old; large or small.

As a volunteer-run, registered charity, we care for these animals by providing veterinary care and foster homes for animals in need until a permanent home is found. These private foster homes provide the animals with warm shelter, food, exercise, and tender loving care (something that so many of the animals we receive have never experienced).

SCARS does not practice selective intake procedures and operates in a triage manner: taking the animal in most medical need first. As a result our medical expenses are enormous. Please consider donating to our rescue efforts.

Look At Us Now!

To date, SCARS has rescued and rehomed over 3,000 animals.

Because these animals live in our homes, we deveop a very deep bond with our fosters. Many of the adoptive families keep us updated on how well their new companions are thriving in their new homes.

To all the wonderful foster homes, all the tireless volunteers, all the compassionate furever-homes: we say a heartfelt thank-you!

Please support your local rescue society and consider adoption as opposed to buying your new friend.

(web-poster note: could not locate pictures referred to but have one of Zeus)

Here are the pictures of Cindy and Zeus with their new family. Everything is going great and they are wonderful additions to the house.

The pictures of Cindy show her on her favorite couch where she waits for Karen to come home from work so she can go for her evening walk.

The pictures of Zeus are one of the few when he isn't running around all over the place.

The family picture shows Cindy, Karen, Keya, Zeus, Sarah and Sneaker. Sneaker and Keya are adjusting to the new kids in the house although for a few days did have their noses out of joint.

They will be 14 in October, but run around after the other two as if they are puppies. Quite a handful when all 4 go out for walks at the same time.
