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.

Maebe (aka May)

Wow, it seems like only we met SCARS at the Pet Expo. How our lives have changes!
Since I last emailed SCARS, Maebe (formerly May) has really gotten great at walking on a leash. (No more dislocated shoulders). The halty really helped and now she is great 90% of the time on her halter.
She is quite a character, and love chewing on my favourite pillow as well as tearing the garbage apart anytime we turn our backs. But honestly, she is a very good dog. We recently found out she is an olympic level swimmer. She loves water, so we got her a kiddy pool for the backyard. I think she loves that more than treats. She also loves riding in the car and especially going to work with her dad. Everyone there loves her.
She is officially a Pet Smart Beginner graduate and likes to flaunt her tricks to anyone who will watch. She can shake a paw, give high-fives and balance food on her nose without eating it. I know...GREAT self control.
Mae has been the best addition to our family. She is definitely our little girl. We even have a "fairy dog mother" and a "dog father" for her. Every day we think about that first day we saw her (and walked her : ) and realize we made a great choice.
Thanks for all you have done for our family!
Beth, Neill and Mae
