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.

Jasper (aka Monkey)

I wanted to say hi and let you know that I’m doing well! My name was formerly Monkey, but my new name is Jasper (for my mom and dad’s favourite park). I love to run, run, run and jump and climb and fetch, and my mom tells me that we will be going to agility classes in January to try to use up some of my energy! I’m fearless and I LOVE people and other dogs. I have been doing very well with my housetraining and have just graduated from puppy classes. My favourite trick is a “high five!”

I am teething right now, so am a little chompy, but have been very good and haven’t chewed up too many things that I’m not supposed to.

My new best friend’s name is Levi – he is a Golden Lab and is only two weeks older than I am. We like to go to the dog park together and we like to wrestle and play. He is much bigger than I am, but I’m faster!

My mom and dad would like to say thanks to SCARS for rescuing my mom and my brothers and sisters and I. They are so glad they were able to adopt me!

Merry Christmas! Love Jasper
