Located 15 minutes north of St. Albert, the SCARS Rescue Centre is adjacent to the Morinville Veterinary Clinic at 9804 – 90 Avenue in Morinville, Alberta.

The SCARS Rescue Centre in Morinville opened to animal take in early October 2022. The facility is open to the public by appointment only as a meet-and-greet location for those who apply to adopt an animal.

It’s been an incredible learning journey for us to renovate a building and set up operations for this new facility. We are so grateful to our donors, volunteers, staff, and board for their support. This 3,800 square foot facility is helping SCARS in many ways, such as providing:

  • placement for pets when foster homes are not currently available (such as late-night intakes that do not require urgent veterinary care)
  • a quiet place for animals to recover from surgeries (such as our community spay-neuter-return pets)
  • new opportunities for volunteers to interact with animals

What we need for the Rescue Centre

We need supplies for daily operations such as pet food, kitty litter, garbage bags and cleaners (see our wish list)! We also need volunteers!

We have a fun opportunity to feature your pet’s cute face inside an indoor dog kennel! See sample below and learn more here!
