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.

Tiny's Story

Just when you think you have seen all that you can stand to see for a week, Tiny comes in.

Tiny could fit in the palm of your hand and loved to cuddle. Tiny’s one front paw was severed and both her back legs were badly damaged. We were unsure if this was a birth defect or if something had been tied around her legs. She had no bone left in her paws and she would never be able to have a quality of life. We hoped that it could be “fixed” but sadly not in this case. We had to make the hard decision to do what was best for Tiny and put her down. Situations such as Tiny’s never get easier, but how could you look at those big eyes and leave her to fend for herself.

Tiny is gone but, not forgotten.
