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.

Akira (AKA Sawyer)

Hi! My name is Ktista. My husband and I adopted Akira from your organization just over 2 years ago. At that time he was known as Sawyer. He is a Ridgeback cross, we believe he is mixed with Husky,as he displays a lot of physical and behavioral characteristics of a husky. Akira's mom and sister were also from your organization. I remember his mother was Onyx and his sister was Sassy.

Akira is a great dog! He is a big sweetheart, and he loves to cuddle and kiss. He is madly in love with our 4 month old daughter.He will not stop kissing her, and every time she cries, he runs into the room to check on her. He sleeps beside her all the time too. He is so loyal, and he is very very protective of our family, especially me and Kalle, our baby girl. He is either following me around the house where ever I go, or he is laying beside Kalle. He is such a fantastic dog for our family.
