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.

Daisy & Duke (aka Audrey & Apollo)

Daisy (AKA Audrey) here.

Had to write and brag about how much fun my brother Duke (AKA Apollo) and I are having at our new home. Yes you read the names right...........Daisy/Duke. I don’t get the big deal about our names, but everyone just seems to think that it is just too funny. Mom always calls Duke first, I wonder why? Mom's nephew tells everyone......Daisy & Duke came from the Lost and Found. Is that where we came from, no matter...........we are just so happy to be together!

Let me start by saying that I am soooooo excited to have my little brother living with me! He is so much fun, and he is such a cool brother.......he lets me win most of the running races and the wrestling matches. Well so he says that he lets me. I just know that I am a wee bit more determined than he is. He says that since he has gotten his cast off, that his leg sometimes bothers him. Really I think that that is just an excuse, 'cause I don’t see that it bothers him very often at all. Far as I am concerned, him breaking his leg just gave him a cute little wiggle to his walk. Makes my mom giggle, so it can’t be a bad thing.

We both love to swim, in the doggie pool, the little lake or the big lake where the trailer is.........it dont matter. Anywhere we can splash is a great time! Fetch is a favorite past time, but not as much fun as wrestling. We wrestle for hours.

We love our squeaky toys, the louder the squeak the better, and sometimes mom thinks that we are going to drive dad crazy with the band that we are starting. Still needs some fine tuning, but practice does make perfect! Mom also reminds dad that a squeaky toy is a good toy, as long as they hear it..........means we are not getting into any mischief. He just sighs, and agrees.

Well, that is all for now. We will keep you posted on how things are going in our forever home. Mom says I got to write this letter, and that Duke gets to write the next one.

Till next time.... Daisy
