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 there,

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to adopt a wonderful dog. I was at your Pet Adoption Day on Jan 9 /09, and met all the wonderful dogs and amazing people in your organization. Once I got to know Josie a little, I knew that she was the match for me. She has bonded with me quite well, and has virtually never left my side since I adopted her. She is a wonderful dog and is learning quite well. She does have a few bad habits, but with patience and time she is getting rid of those. I am grateful to have been able to help her out and your organization. I have attached some photos of her and will keep you updated on her progress.

Thanks Again,
