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.

Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Without your wonderful society we wouldn't have our Dog LEO. We adopted Leo in January 2006. 12 weeks old at the time....he is now 3 years old. A smart, spirited, high energy dog who loves to run, hike, swim and anything else that has to do with the outdoors. This is great for our lifestyle! During days that aren't great for the outdoors, Leo loves to do tricks for treats or play hide and seek in the house. He enjoys to cuddle and a nice massage or being groomed is great in his mind. I never thought it would be comforting to have a dog share my pillow.

Anyways, thank you again for the wonderful work you do.

Stephanie, Jeremy and Leo
