The SCARS family is filled with dedicated supporters. People who give freely of their time and resources to help better the lives of animals in Northern Alberta. We are grateful for all the help we receive and every contribution matters.
Today we want to recognize a very special person who, for years, has gone above and beyond for SCARS. Paula Bissel has a smile that lights up a room and is a reflection of her generous heart, kind soul, and passionate spirit. A great friend to SCARS, there is a long list of contributions Paula has made to our cause – event sponsor, donor, community liaison, rescuer, foster home, transport driver, educator, and volunteer to name a few.
Paula never asks for anything in return. Her support is clearly focused on the betterment of the lives of animals and the people within her community. She lives and leads by example, and we are so blessed she has chosen to be a part of SCARS.
In recent months, Paula has had to back away from SCARS as she took on a very personal fight of her own with breast cancer. While facing her own battle, SCARS has not been far from her mind. In true Paula fashion, she has decided to commemorate her journey to defeat breast cancer by helping others. We are so grateful to accept her donations for our Summer Fundraising raffle.

SCARS knows how fortunate we are to have a supporter like Paula in our corner. In honor of her dedication, SCARS is going to pay it forward to those now helping Paula. If we can raise at least $5,000, we will donate 25% of our raffle proceeds to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Paula has changed the lives of so many animals through her personal rescue efforts, please join us in supporting her and, of course, all the animals out there still needing our help.
