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.

Crispin Spirit says hi to everyone!

On April 24th, it will be three years since my guardian angels at SCARS came to my rescue. A very special thanks to Jan for coming to get me that cold, windy night. Thank God because I was in pretty rough shape from the porcupine quills, not to mention starving to death, literally!

Life is good. I have a sister now as well. We fostered Cammy for a year and then adopted her. She is a great little sister and sure has come a long way since we brought her home. She was shy and pretty scared of people but I told her that my mom would take real good care of her and nobody would ever harm her. She has become daddy's girl, she even lies on the sofa with him every evening to watch TV - that's okay because I am mom's big girl! Sometimes I try to sit on her lap, but her legs are a bit small for my bum.

We go for a walk every morning and just love it. Sometimes Cammy tries to run into the trees foraging for food - old habits die hard. Mom says I am a good girl because I stay close to her side. Besides why would I want to go anywhere - I've hit the good life! Two meals a day, fresh water, nice "dog" house - my people live in it too! We haven't spent a night outside since we came here and do not expect to again! My coat gets brushed and is no longer dirty or matted like it used to be. Just the way it should be for puppies, right?

Our mom and dad take us everywhere with them, we even get to stay in hotels, even Cammy is okay with this. She loves car rides, the moment she hears the 'keys' she is at the door.

Gotta go, our mom is real busy but she promised she would send this update to you. We have enclosed a picture of Cammy as well. It is raining outside today so mom could not get a new one of the two of us together.

Looking forward to seeing you at Tails on the Trails…

Love, hugs and big sloppy kisses

Crispin and Cammy
