About SCARS

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.

Annie (aka Jamie)

Hi – Here’re pictures of Annie graduating from her puppy class. She’s doing really well and is a very smart puppy (now young lady dog). She is much greyer than she was as a puppy and kind of brindled like a boxer. She’s beautiful.
She’s a little reserved with strangers but is good with other dogs and is learning more each day. She is a very calm girl (especially considering it looks like she has collie, lab, and boxer (and probably shepherd etc) in her) but loves to play in deep snow. As you know, she is very smart. She knows most of her basic obedience stuff already (sit, down, stay, come, heel).
We’d like to know more about how she was rescued and if you know anything about the rest of her family.
We love her very much. Thank you for all your hard work with these dogs. *Diane

Buttons (now Bailey) was her littermate, and she has moved with us from our home in Slave Lake to Edmonton. She is very gentle, loves strangers and kids but is quite reserved-she does not bark-a soft woof once every blue moon...
