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.

Hi, Beth!

Here is our happy Benson with his best buddy, Zak. He is a member of the family ... even to the cats (if he'd just stop giving them a chase). However, they are warming up to him! Having only three legs certainly doesn't slow this boy down. I often wonder if we could keep up to him if he had all four. We love him dearly and he's got a great life now: his own bed, toybox, backyard, at least two walks in the ravine each day, tons of love and, most important (to him of course), good food! His coat is shiny and lush now too! Thank you for rescuing him. I knew he was for us when I saw him on your website.

Joan, Frank, Zak, Benson and the cats!
