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.

I just wanted to let you know that Kya has added action and adventure, not to mention loyalty and love, to my life from day one of arriving here at her new home. After recovering from her amputation and then surprising us with 6 puppies Kya has settled into a bit more of laid back lifestyle. She is near completion of basic manners in which she is doing very well. She has also become quite the social butterfly and loves any opportunity to meet new people and dogs. One of her favourite things to do is go down to the river to swim and splash with all the other dogs. What fun! Kya has proven that three legs are better than four, or at least equal to. She is a natural at long distance runs and climbing numerous flights of stairs. Nothing can stop this girl. I cannot imagine a better companion and know that my life is better with her in it! **Nola
