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.

We just wanted to give you an update on Riddick, the Australian Shepherd Cross that we picked up from Athabasca in September/October of 2006 (I think that’s when we got him).

He has finally settled in with his sister Monday. We changed his name to Mimic as soon as we got him – it sounded similar and was just to help him realize he had a new beginning. (also, because he “mimicked” everything Monday did until he took obedience classes with us and finally understood more commands) Monday and Mimic are inseparable now and so happy together. It took him a long time to get over his broken heart and has only just recently actually started to get his self-confidence back and play with enthusiasm.

We have gone rollerblading this spring and although Monday is a wolfhound cross – and has longer legs…. Mimic can go 4 kilometers rollerblading and STILL be pulling his slow-mo Mom behind him. Monday just lopes behind at that point. What an energetic puppy!!

He is so cuddly and loving. He wants nothing more than cuddles and to be near us all the time. We will be moving to Montreal in August for a year and the WHOLE family is moving together. Mimic’s little brother Chase (white cat) is quite happy with the new addition to the family too. Chase and Monday did not get along until Mimic came along! He is the glue that made them all happy together! J Now we are one big happy family and everyone is settled in.

We’ve attached some pictures of the inseparable duo of destruction. J

Luv Tanya, Scott & family.
