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.

Nova's Story

Nova came from a reserve were she frequented the convenience store for scraps. The store owners felt she was in dire need of help. When we picked her up, she was nothing but skin and bones. You could see every curve in her spine, hips and ribs. She was frail but very co-operative. When we put her in the car, she seemed almost relieved. Never did she growl or bark. She was extremely gentle and loving. The truly sad part of Nova's story is that it was obvious she had recently had puppies. The vet seemed to think the puppies were weaned already but we will never know their fate. Nova would have most certainly died of starvation if she had been left by herself any longer.

Nova has been adopted.
