SCARS Rescue Stories

The animals of SCARS have many stories to tell. Here are just a few of them.

Before proceeding please understand that some of these stories may be disturbing to some readers. Although some do not have a happy ending, many of these animals are now in loving forever-homes.


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, non-profit society, 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.

Charlie's Story

Charlie came to us when we received a call from the local vet clinic. His owners failed to contain him properly in their yard and, as a result, he had been caught many times by the local Bylaw Officer. Each time he was caught he seemed glad for the attention and was returned home, happy and healthy. But this time he was not so lucky. Charlie was hit by a car and he suffered considerable damage to his front leg. The only option was amputation. His owners decided to surrender him to the vet.

Charlie may only have three legs, but this does not bother him one bit! He still hops around excitedly and we are sure that he is probably thinking, "who cares I still have one more than you!"

This was a totally preventable tragedy. Please be responsible pet owners.

Charlie has been adopted.
