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 thought it was time for an update on Cuddles, a name that is very well deserved, but one I would not have chosen.

Cuddles came to SCARS after spending a year at the Fort McMurray spca to come here and spend another year with SCARS. I can not imagine how a dog with so much energy and spunk could spend so much time behind bars.

I began to foster Cuddles and soon discovered why people may have been turned off by this sweet girl. Lets just say she acted like a crazy girl when she was in her run. We always liked Cuddles and knew she had a “personality”. We only decided to adopt her after our old dog became very ill and passed away of cancer, and though we could never replace her, Cuddles seemed to fit in with us and our other 4 dogs and even the three cats.

We love her to pieces and I don’t think a day goes by that she does not make us laugh out loud. *Sylvia
