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.

My wife and I adopted Sierra from Scars about 2 months ago and she has been wonderful. She is the second addition to our family (we adopted Tundra as a puppy from CARES about 15 months ago). Sierra was a little nervous of humans at first, but we have been working day and night with her to help her regain her confidence. It is amazing how far she has come in such a short time. Sierra and Tundra are inseparable and go everywhere with us (they especially love camping and the off leash dog park). My wife and I would just like to thank you (SCARS) for everything you have done for these animals, and I know Sierra is thankful for everything you have done for her. We adopted Sierra from Coral, and my wife and I would like to say that she was wonderful to work with during the adoption process. Again we would like to thank you for everything. We have attached some photos of both dogs (Sierra is the bigger one with the purple collar). Sincerely, Ryan & Brianna
