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.

Linus & Ella (aka Sherlock & Lily)

Just wanted to give you all an update on Linus (formerly Sherlock) and Ella (formerly Lily). They are both doing well, getting along very well - no health problems, doing what normal puppies do. They both enjoy playing with other dogs at daycare and the many children that come into our home. They are very gentle and affectionate however Linus is quite protective and warns us of any strange people around the house. They are both high energy dogs and they seem to keep each other running for hours in our back yard - sometimes they get into the flower boxes but I guess thats what puppies do :-)
Most of the time Linus runs around with a stick and Ella chases him but Ella is quite good a pinning Linus. We have really been blessed by these two dogs and have recommended adoption from SCARs for some of our friends who are interested. I am attaching recent pictures of Linus, Ella and one of both of them. Please pass this on to Fran if possible. **Thanks,Rajeev & Naomi.
