Animal Rescue Profile: Second Chance Animal Rescue Society

This month’s animal rescue profile is the Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS).


SCARS is a shelterless, volunteer run animal rescue origination that takes in unwanted dogs and dogs that are to be euthanized in and around rural ares of Edmonton and gives them a second chance at life.  Many of the dogs rescued are from rural area pounds and veterinary clinics.  All dogs receive necessary behavioural and medical attention (including spay and neutering) and are placed with loving foster homes until they are ready for adoption.

SCARS believes that education is key to preventing overpopulation and promoting responsible pet ownership.  One of the ways they do this is by working with many northern rural Alberta communities and offer a spay and neuter return program.

With winter already here, SCARS is in desperate need of foster homes.  Without foster homes, they can’t take in animals who will not survive the harsh winter conditions.  If you are interested in fostering with SCARS, please click HERE.  If you want more information about fostering, please read my post called Fostering An Animal: What You Need to Know.
