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.

Just wanted to tell you how much we love Sammy
He is being SUCH A GOOD BOY-- we absolutely adore him. He has such a wonderful personality.
We had a birthday party for Ben this weekend with 36 guests of all ages and Sammy was the social butterfly. He casually went over to each guest for a pat on the head. He was so well behaved and calm--everyone wanted to know where we got this fantastic dog and nobody could believe we'd only had him a week and that he had been a stray / rescue dog. He retrieved
balls and played with the kids and when it was all over fell asleep sprawled out on his back with a belly full of hotdog :-)
I'm glad we took the leap of faith and made him part of our family. He is everything you said he was and more.
