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 SCARS people,

Just wanted to send a shout out. It was just about this time last year when we came looking for someone to join our family. We found Tucker (looked like a Shepherd cross with one blue eye, one brown - and was in the calendar last year which made him a celebrity around town). We're happy to report he's the best part of our little lives. We couldn't imagine ourselves without him now. He's well behaved, very active, very handsome and very smart. He's the most popular guy at the dog park and he even has a special girlfriend who he gets doggie dates with. His Vet reports are always glowing, he's incredibly loving and we just can't believe what a wonderful boy he is. We couldn't be happier and we think he's pretty happy. (He's actually hopelessly spoiled.) He'll be two years old this March and if you ever need a well behaved guy to represent your organization just drop us a line.

We recommend your organization to everyone we talk to about adopting and if we ever consider adding to the family again we'll be up to see you.

Thanks for changing our lives, keep up the good work.

Jenn and Darren

Hello Tucker,
It's your brother Hunter (I think)!!! I have been waiting for some of my brothers and sisters to pop up. I had a great second Birthday! I am doing great! I will have to post an update soon so you can see me too. You look a little bigger than me, not much though. Mum still says I am her baby boy!
Love always, your bro, hunter
