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.

Maskwa (aka Dandy)

Sorry it's taken so long for us to get you an update on our new best friend...Maskwa ( Adopted as Dandy-February 18 2006).

He was just what we needed to take our hearts out of the sadness we were feeling. After our best friend (Kumomoto) of almost 10 years passed away from Cancer just after Christmas, we were left with a big hole in our lives!!! She was also a rescued dog and never let us forget how grateful she was for that!!! She was full of life right up until she passed.

Maskwa has become one of the family, he is so full of life and has become quite the handsome young dog! He is such a goofy dog (fits right in with us). We get many compliments on him when we are out for walks, looks as well as his good behavior! He is an outside dog with a pretty nice house and yard. He and our cat (Roo) are becoming friends as well. They greet each other at the back door when we are coming or going, not afraid at all!

We just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for doing what you do for our friends!!!We couldn't imagine our days and holidays without him! There is something to be said about saving a life by adopting an animal, our lives were saved as well!!!

Thank you again, *Celine, David, Maskwa and Roo
