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.

Normus' Story

We had received a call about a injured Rotti puppy that was bleeding from the mouth and could not get up. When we arrived Normus was no puppy. We took him straight to the vet and it was discovered he had been shot in the face by a rifle. His jaw was fractured, which would explain why the poor guy was starving. The inside of his mouth was a mess and the bullet was lodged in his tongue. Well several weeks later and after a good dose of antibiotics and pain killers, Normus had fully recovered. He is now happy and loves to play though his play is kind of intimidating since he is so large! He loves going for car rides and makes funny snorting noises when he is happy. Normus has been adopted and is doing very well.

Normus has been adopted.
