Donate to SCARS!
We have some amazing events coming up soon, and we are pleased to provide an update on our Morinville Rescue Centre - see below.

Join us this weekend for an adoption event at our new facility in Morinville

WE NEED ADOPTIONS! If have been thinking about adopting, this event is for you. Join us outdoors at our new facility in Morinville for an adoption event featuring dog, puppies, cats and kittens. The facility is located just 15 minutes north of St. Albert at 9804 - 90 Avenue in Morinville. Click here to learn more.

We encourage you to complete a general adoption application prior to attending the event. In the name field on the application please reference “adoption event” and it will be pre-screened in time for the event! This will help speed up the process should you decide to adopt.

To see all the animals attending the event visit our adoptable animals website page. We can’t wait to see you there.

Join us "in-person" for our biggest event of the year! Critters & Cocktails is our annual dinner-gala themed banquet with silent and live auctions. This year’s theme is “Grrrease.” It is also our 20th anniversary and we’re celebrating 50s style! Click here for tickets and more information.

Rescue Centre Renovation Update

We are excited to announce we will be opening for animal intake at our new facility in Morinville in early October. Our talented and hard working staff and volunteers have been chipping away on renovations all summer and the facility has been transformed - see images below. We are so grateful to everyone who has donated and volunteered. Here is what we still need:
  • veterinary cages to house cats
  • more outdoor kennel fencing
  • ongoing supplies for daily operations (see our wish list)
  • facility volunteers to assist our staff

Thanks to our generous supporters, we now have:

  • a commercial-quality clothes washer & dryer
  • sea cans to store supplies
  • outdoor fencing (partially complete)
  • indoor animal surveillance
  • a clean and updated facility
To donate to our facility, please visit

And don't forget about our fun opportunity to honour your past or current pet(s) by featuring them on the wall of our indoor kennels. See the image below and learn more at!
