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.

Hello! I just had to write and tell SCARS how absolutely thrilled we are with Shyla!! My husband and I absolutely adore her - and she is soooo well behaved and affectionate! She has no trouble telling our big rowdy Australian Shepherd who's the new boss, and it's hilarious to watch them play and trade rawhide bones and toys all the time! Our cats like her as well, and share the couches with her! Thank you so much for the time and effort SCARS puts into the rescued animals, and we are so happy we are able to give Shyla her forever home!
