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.

It has been about three months since we adopted Sly from Jan. I just wanted to email another update and let you know how he is doing…aside from tearing everything he can get into his mouth apart, he is wonderful. We moved out to an acreage so he has a companion and lots of room to run and play. (which he absolutely loves, especially when he escapes) He has grown a bit since we got him, but still a little teddy bear. He did have a bit of a run in with a porcupine, but luckily he only got one quill (through the tongue somehow) We had the vet fix him up right away though. Everyone we've come across absolutely adores him.
Again thank you.
