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.

Not sure if you remember us, we adopted Dixie (black shepherd mix) from a farm outside of Edmonton a couple of years ago, but I just wanted to let you all know she is doing wonderful! My fiancĂ© and I just moved to Nova Scotia but I had to drive out here first by myself because he had to leave a week or so later. Anyway I took Dixie and she was the best company I could have had! We love her dearly and we don’t forget where she came from! I’ll attach some pics!

editors note: of course we remember you and Dixie! We never forget our puppies who we will alsoway love nor their adoptive families who we will always be greatful to.
