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.

Charlie (aka Good Boy)

Hi Guys it's Charlie here.....I'm coming up to the 6 month mark, and the dreaded vet visit. But good news! Our vet has laser surgery now and it'll be a cinch. He also agrees that I don't much resemble a cock-a-poo like my Mom and assumes I must look like my Dad. I've got a real terrier look to my snout, and a sense of smell to match. Oh and the people here tease and call me "charles" cuz I look so mature already with my white beard. I've really grown to love my people and would be lost without my best pal Lacey. I will sit and shake a paw now, we are working on stay. Thanks to all the fabulous volunteers at SCARS and in my case a big wet kiss to Cheryl at Little Arf' N' Annie for finding me a forever home with both a little boy to take care of and a mothering shelty to take care of me. *Charlie & The Family
