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 to all you wonderful people.

Can’t say thank you enough for the beautiful Bailer we adopted from you back in 2007.

May I add an updated photo of Bailer to the existing post? Someone commented on the post looking for an updated picture because they adopted Bailer’s brother.

Here is an updated photo of Bailer at the lake this summer.

Bailer has adjusted very well to his new forever home.
He is a star!
Our other dog Koda loves him to bits. They romp and play continuously.
Thanks for such a beautiful puppy. We are enjoying him tremendously!

You should put up an update of this cutie. We have his littermate (Odie) and I would love to see how Bailer looks as they are a year old next month :)

wow, if his brothers have lighter fur I would say, these BROTHERS sure have something in common! happy faces and funny ears. Haha! I have his littermates Cain & Abel. It sure is nice to see how the others look like now a year later.. :)

He looks so much like Odie. He is beautiful. They are about the same size!
