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.

Hello! My name’s Kimby, although sometimes my new mommy calls me Gizmo because she says I remind her of the cute little alien in Gremlins (I have one big ear that sticks straight up and another that flops over, so I think I’m much cuter!).

Although I love my foster family, my new forever home is pretty okay too! My sister Cassie is about my age and we play all day (except for walks and meals, of course). Here’s a photo of us on mommy’s bed (well, she thinks it’s her bed, but really it’s ours). She even gave us our own bedding because we like to chew it up so much.

Usually, I’m a perfect little angel, but sometimes mommy gets upset, like the time I watched her gardening and decided I could help by digging up the lawn or when I thought grandma’s glasses were for playing tug-of-war. Mommy likes it best when I just roll over for tummy rubs, and I have to admit I like that a lot too!

My sister is a rescue puppy just like me and we’re both so happy to have a loving home. We’re starting puppy classes next week; mommy says it’ll be fun, but I’m not so sure. Sometimes I shake a paw when she asks, but usually I don’t see the point! Cassie seems to enjoy performing her tricks, so maybe there’s something to it after all.

Anyway, it’s time to play again. Thanks so much to my foster family and the nice people at SCARS who helped me find my forever home!
