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.

About 4 years ago my family adopted a collie cross puppy from your adoption center. He was only 3 months old then and the last puppy left in the litter. Although I was a little unsure about adopting a dog from a rescue center, it did not take long to figure out how smart the little dog (Buddy) was. He has now grown into the smartest dog I have ever met, mastering obstacle courses, livestock herding and not mention excellent obedience skill in all situations without the need for obedience classes. He has been the best friend a girl could have, and in a few years when I finish my education I will without a doubt get my new dog from SCARS. I recommend to anyone else thinking of getting a dog to adopt from SCARS too.
Thanks for a first class dog, Rebecca
