SCARS is an Edmonton and Athabasca based charity. We rely on the hard work and compassion of volunteers. They assist in the care of roughly 1,000 animals who need our help every year. We call them volunteers, but to the animals, they are heroes. In every capacity, volunteers are a highly valued resource to our society and are making a very real difference in the lives of so many animals.
SCARS is almost 100% volunteer run. SCARS does not have a central facility with regular business hours that volunteers can visit, but there are many ways to help. The following are some examples of opportunities to volunteer. We provide training for many of the roles (for example, foster home training and dog handler training for adoption events).
