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.

Emma's Story

“Emma” was found curled up in a ball in the middle of the road on a very cold, blustery winter day. She was freezing and starving to death. Emma’s ears and part of her tail were frostbitten so severely that they required amputation. She also had puncture wounds on her back, a bad eye infection and ear mites. After a few weeks of medical treatment and a warm bed, she recovered from her injuries and became a permanent member of her foster family’s home.

Emma has been adopted.
