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.

Mattie (aka Lina)

I figured it was about time that I updated you all on how Mattie (aka Lina) is doing.

She has grown into the most beautiful girl with a sleek shiny black coat and beautiful brown eyes. We visit the dog parks here in Edmonton everyday and she loves to greet everyone, wailing with excitement when she sees people she knows. Mattie loves to chase balls and is learning to bring them back to me, especially if I have a yummy treat as a reward.

Mattie got spayed at 6 months and also go her rear dew claws removed she is a favorite at the vets – they all love her! She is wonderful playmate to Gyro and to the cats Sailor and Bella.

We went to play in the river on the weekend and she loved it. I am including pictures of her in the river and some taken tonight for you all to see how big she has grown and how well she is doing.

Thank you all for giving me the gift of Mattie.

I would love to know how her siblings are doing! **Jayne, Mattie, Gyro, and Sailor and Bella (the cats)
