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 My name is Heidi and we adopted Hope July of 2007. We just wanted to let you know that she is doing great, she is such a wonderful friendly girl. She loves going to the dog park and chasing after sticks for hours. She is learning how to catch a Frisbee and in January we are going to start agility classes. She came on vacation with us last summer and got to go swimming a lot and made lots of new friends. She gets so much love and affection everyday and she makes us laugh everyday.

Thank you SCARS for all the hard work you do and thank you Brianna and Ryan (Hopes foster Parents) for training her so well. We are so greatful to have found such a perfect match for us.

Thank you,

Heidi and Jamie
