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.

Here's a little update on Rocky. He was found in a ditch along with his sisters and Scars is now taking care of his mom Junebug.

We have now had Rocky for 3 months and he's doing great! He's grown a lot since the first day we saw him at 6 weeks, now he's 5 months and pushing 35 pounds!
He's in day care twice a week and really enjoys playing with the other dogs and we have started obedience classes.

As you can see by the pictures from when he was a little tyke to now….he sure like to eat! Thanks to Scars for all they have done for him and if Tony gets his way, Rocky will have a playmate soon from Scars!

I would love to know how Rocky's sisters are doing, if you have any info on them I would love to hear it. Thanks again!
