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.

Stella (Abby)

Hello everyone at SCARS,

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on Stella (who was named Abbey) who we adopted from Sylvia.

Abbey has been fantastic and a wonderful addition to our family. The first couple of days were hard on her as I believe she was adjusting to her new surroundings and family - myself, Lindsay and our two cats, Artoo and Felicity, but she is now definitely a huge part of our family. Since we adopted her, Abbey has gone from being quite shy and timid to very outgoing and playful. Christmas has been fantastic to all of us and Abbey received more gifts than any of us combined. We look forward to watching her grow and know that there will be plenty of Christmas' ahead to enjoy with her. So thank you SCARS and Sylvia for making our adoption process so easy. We never imagined that we would get someone as wonderful as Abbey. You've really enriched our lives with all of the hard work you all put in.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Tony, Lindsay, Artoo, Felicity and Abbey
