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.

Penny has added joy to our life following the sudden death of our other dog.

She is becoming quite comfortable around us in particular the children. She is very quiet but when she bounds up the stairs after our son with her tail wagging and that 'I'm here' look in her face, she is extremely expressive.

She enjoys the off leash area behind our house. We are not quite sure what would happen if the deer which frequent the area commonly were to make an appearance - I suspect her 'come when called' would win out - I hope.
She is very patient while we are at work/school. She waits patiently in the front window surveying the activity in the street. She has also developed a love of the leather sofa in the front room. It's a tough life!!!

Thanks for all your support.
