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.

Jasper (Chaos)

I adopted Chaos for my son and myself a couple of years ago (April, 2005). His name is now Jasper and he is a very happy, healthy, well adjusted addition to our family. He loves to play ball and run through the gully by our house. He loves to camp and hang out by the lake. Jasper has made our family complete. He is a special animal that is full of love and he has touched not only our family but all our neighbors too.

Jasper was one of 4 puppies found together (2 girls and 2 boys, one was named Tango). We had a lot of challenges with Jasper initially as he was developing open soars all over his body because he was allergic to almost everything. After a year of experimenting with food and steroids we finally have a solution. Jasper has been eating raw dog food and specifically Pets-Go-Raw buffalo full meal, and all the soars are gone. No more steroids!!! I am telling you this in case any of the other puppies have similar issues and you have been contacted. So far Jasper is allergic to wheat, corn, all grains, chicken, fish, turkey and possibly some molds. If any of the other puppies have similar issues to Jasper I am willing to talk to their owners about solutions. Jasper is a fantastic dog and I would hate to see someone give up on a dog they adopted because they can’t find a solution and are frustrated.

Thanks for giving Jasper his start in life.
