Meet Jupiter! This amazing momma cat was brought into the rescue where she gave birth to three kittens and was a surrogate for three more. She did a superb job raising the kittens Sandy, Gene, Yew, Othel, Odin, and Papyrus. Her kittens have since grown and she is spayed, rested, and ready to find her furever home. She gets along with other cats, dogs and rabbits, but Jupiter would do best in a home with fewer people. She is affectionate and loving toward people but needs a quiet and calm house so she can shine. Loud footsteps scare her away so Jupiter needs a family that will consider her needs. She tolerates being picked up and cuddled but she is happiest when given her space to come to you. She is becoming more confident every day and has the cutest expressions. If you have a quiet lifestyle that would be brightened up with this sweetheart, please fill out an adoption form for Jupiter.

​Our mission is to assist animals in need and place these animals into homes where they will be treated with the love and respect that they deserve. To ensure that the necessary veterinary care for the animals we rescue be provided.

​Second Chance Animal Rescue in Windsor (S.C.A.R) opened in June of 2015 to service the Windsor / Essex area of Southern Ontario, Canada. S.C.A.R is a local non-profit organization established to rescue and rehome cats and dogs of all ages and size. 

The foundation of our organization are board members with years of animal rescue and pet care experience.  Our ultimate focus is to help dogs and cats get off the streets and out of shelters. 

With the help of loving foster homes and community support S.C.A.R aims to be a voice for the voiceless.  We ensure that all of our adoptable pets have necessary veterinarian care by some of the best local Veterinary Clinics. 

The animals are temporarily fostered in loving homes until a forever home is found for each animal. All homes are fully screened and checked before an animal is placed into a loving home.
