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.

Just thought I’d give you an update on Kimby. She is doing so well! She walks with her sister Cassie (who came from the Edmonton Humane Society) everyday at the off-leash area in Sherwood Parkand everyone comments on what a sweet, happy puppy she is. You would never know that she had such a rough start in life! Aside from being cute and cuddly, her little quirks are what make her so special: she loves water and will swim wherever she can, including her water dish, the toilet, and puddles (she is usually caked in mud by the time she leaves the off-leash, but fortunately she likes to take baths as well!). It has been trying at times raising two puppies together, but knowing that Kimby and Cassie will have a happy life makes it all worthwhile. And having two puppies to walk and cuddle with is a bonus! Take Care, Jennifer
