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.

Olive (Autumn)


I just want to send along a success story, and a picture of our Olive (formerly known as Autumn) who we adoped in August.

We instantly fell in love with her as she bonded with us. It didn't take long for her to settle in, and even when she's causing trouble (which does happen from time to time), we can't stay mad at her for long.

She's been an amazing addition to our household - she's always good for a few laughs and loves her daily walks. She's also doing great at puppy school!

We are so greatful that we found out about SCARS and brought Olive into our lives. We can't wait for dog #2 (but need a bigger house first).
Thank you for everything you do!
