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 All,

I just thought I better give you an update on how well I am doing and show you what a handsome fella I have become.

I am doing GREAT! I have gone to obedience classes and am currently in an Agility class (which I love). I have been excelling at everything I try. My mom is so proud of what a good boy I am. I wanted to give a special thanks to SCARS and my foster parents, Maria and David. They took such great care of me and found my mom! I also want to thank everyone who helped to get me my heart surgery. I know it probably cost a lot and you all knew I was well worth it. Thank you ALL again and please keep up all the good work with giving more puppies/dogs like me a second chance!

Lots of snuggles and licks.

I thought I would just send a little note about our Ginger girl (Betty). She had grown a lot already, she is turning into a lovely young miss. Most importantly her mouth is recovering beautifully! We have had a few check ups since her surgery and now her cone is off and she is allowed to start chewing on soft toys again. Still not quite ready for anything to hard, but she is doing fantastic. She is also learning so much so quickly. She is very smart and has quite the little personality. I want to thank you for the blessing that she is and the amazing work you all do that brought her to us!

God Bless you all,

The Hudson Family
