Since 2002, SCARS has cared for animals at our Athabasca Second-Chance Country Refuge and through volunteers foster homes. We expanded in October 2022 with the opening of our Morinville Rescue Centre. Please note that the facility is open to the public by appointment only as a meet-and-greet location for those who apply to adopt an animal.
Sponsor an area of our Athabasca Second-Chance Country Refuge facility. This kennel sponsorship program allows individuals to acknowledge family, friends, special occasions, promote a business, in memory of a loved one. Whatever or whoever you would like to recognize in a special way. In doing so you are supporting the needs of the many animals currently in our care!
Sponsor a SCARS Sanctuary Animal. Sanctuary animals are rescues that have very strong special needs and are likely to be with SCARS permanently as they will not assimilate with the general public. We need sponsors to help us offset the cost of permanently housing these animals and giving them the love, care and attention they so desperately need.
Sponsor a SCARS Event. SCARS holds several fundraising initiatives across the year that support our mission to promote humane care and protection of all animals and to prevent cruelty and suffering. We are seeking your support to help us reach our fundraising goals. Have a look at our upcoming events for the opportunity that’s right for you!
