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.

Well, here I am four years after my forever family found me. My family tells everyone that I am THE BEST DOG IN THE WORLD and that they adopted me from Second Chance. I get compliments all the time on how beautiful I am --- must be all that brushing my “mom” does in an attempt to decrease my shedding --- she says that’s my only negative drawback. I love my family, even these annoying kittens they just adopted; I sure put up with a lot. Good thing I’m such an easy going and laidback personality. I sure enjoyed camping this summer and meeting lots of new people and kids anytime I can sneak in the vehicle I”ll go along. Thanks to the wonderful people who gave me a Second Chance especially Sylvia for boarding me till my forever family found me. Thanks for making a difference for so many families who are blessed to have a SCARS dog.
