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.

Lobos (aka Teddy)

Lobos (was Teddy), who I'm pretty sure is Josie(Tanya)'s brother, is now a gorgeous 10 month-old. When we got him at two months, he was super-affectionate, but scared to go anywhere -- by foot or by car. We'd carry him out for walks and then he'd pull us all the way home.

Now he can hardly wait to go for a walk -- the longer the better, and he loves car-rides too. He has a couple of doggy-buddies to play with in the park a few times a week. That's just about his favorite thing in the world!

He loves just about everything and everybody, and even after all these months he still lives in hope that the cats will play with him. They punch him in the face when he comes too close, though. They're not scared of him, they just don't want to play with the giant.

His fur has changed colour and texture, so he doesn't look too much like the little Teddy we took home last December. His personality hasn't changed though. He's still just as sweet and good-natured as ever. We were very lucky the day he came into our lives! **Brenda
