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.

I just wanted to give you an update on Miss Leah. She is doing very well and has my mom trained to suit her needs. Leah has decided she needs to sleep in the house at night and causes a fuss until my mom lets her in. She is not allowed in the living room, but has wrangled her way into the bedroom during thunderstorms!! At bedtime she has no desire to sleep in her princess bed. The back entry is just fine (although the cat disagrees). She is such great company for my mom.

Of course, Leah still comes over to our place to play with the boys and set them straight. Our friend's guide dog took a shine to Leah this summer. We laughed that the city boy fell for the rough and tumble country girl. At first Leah was oblivious to Bennett's advances, but now they are buddies.

Leah is very comfortable in our house thanks to my husband Mark. I took this picture of Leah on the couch as blackmail. If my mom finds out we let her up on the couch we will be in big trouble!!

Leah keeps us on our toes and certainly puts a smile on our face. She is a great addition to our family.
