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.

Lady's Story

Lady was found on a cold winter day tied to a generator at an abandoned farm. A potential renter came along and found what she thought was a deceased dog. As she approached, Lady lifted her head just barely as if to say "thank goodness you found me." As a Great Pyrenees cross, she should have weighed closed to 90 pounds, but she tipped the scale at just 40 pounds. After weeks of intensive rehabilitation, she was adopted and is now loving her forever family.

Lady has been adopted.
