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.

Tuff and Glory's Story

Tuff and Glory, two puppies of a litter of five, had a horrific first four weeks of life. Their tails were docked as newborns and they were left under a trailer when their owners moved away. Three of their sibblings died of starvation after falling down an open pipe that was under the trailer. The real tragedy is the pipe was so shallow that if anyone had noticed or cared they could have easily been pulled to safety. These two are the lucky ones. Tuff was pulled out of the pipe with little time to spare and it is a miracle Glory managed not to fall in. We were called only after the smell of the dead puppies became too much for the new residents to bare. We are still trying to locate the mother so she can have her second chance.

Tuff and Glory have been adopted.
