Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) is a non-profit Edmonton and Athabasca, Alberta, Canada, based registered charity that is operated solely by volunteers. Our society relies on money raised through memberships, donations, sponsorships, government grants, and other fundraising efforts. SCARS operates as a no-kill rescue and primarily takes in animals who are slated for euthanasia at municipal pounds. SCARS actively works within communities to promote responsible companion animal guardianship. This includes promoting spaying and neutering, vaccinations, micro-chipping and training.
SCARS is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless and abandoned animals in Northern Alberta.
We believe there is a suitable home for all homeless animals, young or old.
