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 there:

My girlfriend recently adopted Sarah from you and she is living with us at our acreage by Stony Plain. She is really fitting well into the household. She really loves to sit on the couch and watch everything and the birds through the window.

We have also bought her a pet bed and she only took one night before she was sleeping on that. So she is a really nice doggy. Sometimes she is a little difficult to get in and out of the car/truck/house but is really coming around. She is shy in the morning but usually about 5 boy she really busts loose and really loves to chase that ball. So she is a really nice doggy.

Thank you.

Sarah is such a great dog! She stole my heart as soon as I met her at Sylvia's place a few summers ago. I always made sure I had a squeeky tennis ball for her when I got out of the car.
I'm so happy that she found her forever home with you guys. She really is awesome!
