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 are delighted to give you an update on Patrick who was adopted on August 28, 2007 (or should I say that’s when Patrick adopted us!).

We lost our beloved lab Honey back in April and after 14 ½ years together, we weren’t anxious to have another pet. But from the moment we walked into Dogspaw, Patrick captured our hearts. He walked around the 4 of us, and promptly climbed into my lap which is no small feat for a dog his size! Patrick now lives near an off leash park by the river in Edmonton and loves his 3 walks each day. He is perfectly behaved and enjoys playing with dogs of all sizes. Both he and my husband have lost a few pounds and that’s great for both of them. My 6 yr old nephew recently commented that our house feels much better now that we have another dog and we wholeheartedly agree. Patrick had a check up and shots at the vet yesterday and the vet was delighted to confirm he is in excellent health. We would like to thank you for the great work you do!!

Thanks again for rescuing Patrick!
