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.

Stella (aka Dotty)


I thought it was time for another update on Stella (a.k.a Dotty) or "Gorgeous" as she is sometimes known. She is 5 months old and is doing wonderfully. She graduated from obedience puppy training at the top of her class, is well behaved on a leash, is amazingly intelligent, and is the most accomplished puppy in the world at knocking over all the plants in her house.

Stella has a big extended family that loves her and lives to spoil her and let me tell you, this dog was born to be spoilt. Her first Christmas passed relatively uneventfully with the exception of the discovery that she loves to "help" open presents ...unfortunatly the presents she was opening weren't hers and it was a week before Christmas.

Stella will be starting agility training in the Spring, mainly to keep her healthy, active, and her mind stimulated. One day soon we hope to extend our family with another dog adopted from SCARS. Stella is very much looking forward to this day since the cat really isn't into running around the yard like a maniac. Thank you again for helping us find our little pup.
