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.

Gracie (aka Nana)

I wanted to update AGAIN how well Gracie is doing. She definitely has the Basset in her as she loves to howl when we sing! She certainly has her own voice and makes sure you know exactly how she feels about things. She has a cat brother named Reilly whom she would dearly love to play with but who has decided he can't be bothered with these dog things. And she has a big brother named Buster (in picture) who she torments endlessly. She has been a test of his patience has she runs alongside him ,nipping at his ears. But he loves her so much and washes her face each morning. He's very protective at the off-leash and at the slightest sign that she might be in over her head, Buster runs over to "save" his princess. I am so grateful to SCARS for giving her a second chance. We just love her to bits.

Just a few pics to show you what a little gem you guys helped create.

Gracie(Nanna) and I spend every waking moment together and the favorite part of both our days is the half hour walk we take at 6 in the morning. I know she is a special little monkey if she can manage to have me awake at that time and NOT be grumpy!! More and more of goofiness comes out everyday and we sometimes refer to her as "graceless Gracie" as she is terribly clumsy. But she makes me smile and even Reilly, the cat, has determined she is hardly a threat and will allow us all to sleep together in peace. The look of horror on his face when he woke up cuddled up to Gracie instead of me was priceless. Thanks again for this little bundle of joy and laughs!!

Feel free to post pics and letter. Everyone should be so lucky to have a Gracie!

OK so I am biased because I am her mom but SCARS has changed our life by finding us our Gracie Bean. She brings joy each day and a laugh. Her big dog brother adores her (a bit too much sometimes) and she has mellowed her grumpy old feline brother to a point where he and GRacie sleep together on her bed.
She's just a little love bug.
