About Us

Second Chance Animal Rescue Society acknowledges we are on Indigenous land in Treaty 6 territory. Land occupied, travelled, and cared for by Indigenous peoples since time immemorial. SCARS operates within the traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and travelling route of the Nêhiyawak (Cree), Anishinaabe (Saulteaux), Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux.

Our mission

Our mission is to make a positive impact on animals and people by engaging with others to rescue and care for animals in need, share knowledge, and provide access to services and resources.

We take in as many homeless pets as our resources allow. Each one is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and receives whatever care it needs. We typically have over 200 in care and find loving homes for over 2,000 every year.
