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.

Here is a picture of Jackson at about 5 months of age. We got him at the end of September from Second Chance. He’s now 9 months and 90 pounds and is a very handsome dog. As he was one of the runts of the litter, I’m just wondering how big the other puppies have become and would be interested in hearing of his brothers and sisters (I think there were 11 and they came from the Enoch Reserve). I go onto your website in hopes of seeing some of them, but haven’t yet. He loves everyone, especially pretty young girls, and is a guy’s guy, a man’s man. He has re-landscaped our backyard and enjoys shrubs and small trees. Well, he’ll eat just about anything. He has a very calm temperament, though, and is on the whole very well behaved. He has been a great, if bigger than expected, addition to the family. Thanks so much for the work you do at Second Chance. My boys are happy to finally have a‘real’dog. *Diane
