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.

Hi Jamie and Foster Parent Olivia,

Sierra is doing beautifully! She is very happy and loved. She is extremely smart and we have started training. She loves her walks and loves to play fetch. Her and our little shitsu terrypoo, Abby, are the best of friends, and they will even share a food bowl now. She truly is a member of our family and we just wanted to thank you for her, and your support and guidance when we had questions or concerns. We are looking at agility training for her as she is extremely smart and can jump crazy heights. She also loves spending time with us, and that is some great one on one time. Our 18 month old daughter can say her name beautifully, and in fact it was one of her first words. The girls really enjoy her.
Thanks again,
Jenni, Khery, Brieanna, Indigo and her best pal Abby

Lets just say that we built a six foot fence around the yard with a 5.5 foot gate at the sid of the house. She jumped over the gate!!!! We had to replace it. She sticks to the yard even when she gets out thought...she loves her humans :-)
