SCARS continues to do its part to limit the spread of COVID-19 to protect the public and our volunteers.

As of July 1, 2021, Alberta entered Stage 3 of its Open for Summer Plan. This is great news! However, although the general indoor provincial mask mandate has been lifted, masking may still be required in limited and specific settings.

For the time being, SCARS foster homes have agreed, for your safety and theirs, that “we aren’t quite ready” to give up masks for our pet adoption meet-and-greets indoors in homes. We will also continue to provide the option of virtual meet-and-greets for those who prefer it.

When you apply to adopt, we will work with you to protect your health and that of our volunteers. If you have any questions or concerns about our adoption processes, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
