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.

Maggie (aka Allie)

It’s me Allie. I not only have a new home with great humans and a new playmate, but also have a new name. My new name is Maggie. I just wanted to let you know that I have settled into my new home and am quite the cute little character. You were right when you said I would be a handful. I got my human’s number right off the bat and kept them up every night for the last 5 weeks. They finally took a stand and put earplugs in so they could get some sleep at night. After the second night, I finally caught on and am quiet until about 6 am.

I have had both my first and second set of shots and am a very healthy little girl. I have doubled in size and weight since December 3rd. My human’s had a good talk with the vet about me getting them up at night and she said it was good that they finally put a stop to it as I am more than old enough to hold it through the night.

I was also having some house training issues that were frustrating my humans to no end. They we were sending me some mixed signals according to the vet, so I am now in a more structured routine, including my feeding and peeing/pooping schedule. They call this crate training?

The first week in my new home, I scarfed my food so fast you would have thought I was starving. I eventually slowed down and was self feeding, but the vet said not to do this, so I am now on a feeding schedule. This is to help with the house training issues as well.

I really like my new playmate, Missy, and have become good friends with her. We like to wrestle on our human’s bed, play tug-o-war with all our toys and race around the house. I also have a nice backyard to play in. I am sending you a picture of me and Missy that was taken two days after coming to my new home. So, please don’t worry about me. I love my new home; my new playmate and my human’s too!!

Love Maggie (Allie)
