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.

Jake (aka Big Jake)

I was on your site and thought I would let you know how well Jake is doing.

He is wonderful. He's an escape artist so he has to get tied in the yard but other then that he's a pleasure to have. He's getting older but he still acts young. He loves his walks and getting attention from anyone who will pet him.

Here's a pic of him and his biggest fan. (my son Bram) Jake lets him crawl all over him and all he does is lick his face. Once in awhile we have to watch him when his arthritis acts up but that's about all. I just got Jake shaved all the way down and what a difference.... He looks so young. He likes it cause it keeps him cool and I like it cause not as much hair. The thing is his underbelly and legs are almost all grey.

Thanks again for giving us a wonderful dog. Grace, Stefan, Bram, Bree and Jake
