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.

Hi! It's Benny!

I have been with my new family for 1 month now and I am loving it! I get to wake everyone up with great big kisses every morning and then I get a good belly rub! I love my new backyard and I have so much fun running laps around it. There are lots of cool places to explore and everyday is a new adventure.

My favorite time of the day is when I get to go on long walks and if I am really lucky there will be lots of deep snow for me to jump around in. I just wanted to say hello to all my old friends and let everyone know that I am doing great!

Kisses Benny (AKA Big Ben!)

Hi From Christine and Jarrod!

We adopted Benny at this year's Pet Expo in Edmonton just over a month ago.

We have enjoyed each and every day with him. Over the past month Benny's true personality has come out and he has provided us with numerous moments of laughter and lots of kisses!! He loves having his chin scratched as well as his belly. Benny is a very well behaved boy and where ever he goes everyone comments on how handsome he is. We just wanted to let you know that things are going great and we couldn't have asked for a better dog.

Thank you so much to your organization and for introducing us to Benny.

Christine and Jarrod
