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.

Dixi & Anna (aka Dottie & Glory)

Its been a year since we picked Dixi (formerly Dottie) up from St. Albert, and 2 years since we adopted Anna (formerly Glory). Both puppies are doing excellent, other than the odd taste-testing of various objects including the telephone bill. LOL.

Anna is our very vocal but purely harmless guard dog, loudly alerting us to people, critters and wind. The hair on her back stands on ends when she hears something unfamiliar. She loves snooping around, stuffing her mouth with racket balls and lying on her back (a type of doggy yoga). A far cry from being cold and scared under a trailer 2 years ago.
Dixi has been very quiet. We have only heard 3 girly barks this whole year. Maybe she is learning from Anna how to bark – after all she learnt to play like how a dog should including chew toys and balls. Dixi loves to stretch out on the couch with one of us, sometimes on her back with her legs sticking up into the air (another type of doggy yoga). We have also discovered that Dixi loves to dance – when we move to music, she would jump up to move with us.

Both puppies are such a joy to us, entertaining us to no end. We want to convey our thanks and encourage SCARS to continue their wonderful work.
