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.

Oslo (AKA Blue)

Hi SCARS ladies!!!

James and I adopted Oso (formerly known as Blue) from you this summer and I just wanted to give you an update! We adopted Oso after being treated at Whitemud Creek Veterinary Clinic for having porcupine quills removed from his face (he and his brothers must have been super hungry to go after a porcupine!).

Oso is the third of our new three dog family. His big brother Murdoch took him in the first day and showed him the ropes. They are best of friends. Oso has really helped my mom’s dog Bear come out of his shell (he is a bit of a mental mess) but they are now very good friends as well! Oso and the gang have all moved to Peachland, B.C. and everyone loves him and comments on his big blue eye! His life consists of exploring all the mountainous crown land, swimming at the doggie beach with other mutts, and resting by the fire in the evening. He is almost finished growing as he is about a year now (whew!).

We love Oso so much and we are so happy that SCARS rescued him so he could be the important part of our family that he is today!

Thank you so much,

Holly and James,
Peachland, BC
