"Because Every Animal Deserves a Second Chance at Happiness"


Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR) was established in February 2012 by an few employees of Animal Medical Center in Cairo, GA.  These individuals saw a need in our community to try to re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs. 

SCAR is run by a group of volunteers that donate their time and energy to feeding, cleaning and looking after our rescues.  Currently we pull dogs from high kill shelters around the area and give them a second chance at life.  We also take in retired and unwanted breeder dogs.  Roughly half the animals that go to shelters are destroyed.  These animals are generally not homeless "street" animals but are puppies, kittens and healthy animals that could make deserving and loving companions. 

SCAR's Board of Directors include:

Mollie Johnson - President

Bonnie Smith - Treasurer

Dr. Elizabeth Kidd - Veterinarian at Cairo Animal Hospital
