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.

At first we were worried about Chloe not warming up to us given what happened on her first night with us. She was very shy at first but now she is a regular part of our family. She loves to sleep on the bed with us and always curls up on the couch with her favorite pillow. She loves to run in the back field with our other dog and always comes when called. She particularly enjoys the off-leash park and bird sanctuary near our house. She loves her new home and is everything we wanted in our new dog.

You would also be pleased to know that she is very smart. In just a few weeks she learned how to sit and lay down. We are working on “stay” and “heel.” All in all she is a little bundle ofenergy and joy. She enjoys stealing our other dog’s toys to get him to play, and often they wrestle and play together in the yard. She has even been teaching our other dog how to hunt birds, so birds beware….

Thank you so much for everything you did that first night. Chloe is a wonderful addition to our family and we all love her so much. We have attached a picture of Chloe for you to see how well she is doing.

Best regards,
Mike, Cassie, J.D. and Chloe
