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.

We adopted Sasha in November of 2005 and we have loved every minute of the time we have spent with her! We may be extremely biased but we have even had friends who don't like dogs admit what a great dog she is. Sasha loves to meet new people and animals. Her favorite things to do are run and to play with other dogs. In the beginning of 2006 we attended Basic Manners classes at Dogspaw and Sasha graduated with flying colours.

We recently had a new baby come into our home and were a little worried about if Sasha would be jealous. The worries were for nothing as Sasha thinks of the new baby as hers and if he starts crying she will come and get one of us if we don't come fast enough.

Thank you so much for all the great work you do in bringing these deserving animals to loving homes! We can honestly say that our lives wouldn't be the same without Sasha in them! It is hard to imagine a time that she wasn't with us even though it has only been a year and a half.

Celena, Scott & Kellan
