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.

Hi my name is Stephanie , I adopted Autumn (she is your Miss September in your calender) almost a year ago now.

She is the best dog I have ever had, we absolutely adore her. I took some great pictures of her and thought you might like to see how she is doing and what she grew up to be. She gets along great with all the other animals on our farm, the picture of her with the calf, that is her best friend, he was an orphan and grew up thinking he was a dog as Autumn was always with him.

Thank you for being there and giving these wonderful dogs a second chance. Steph
