Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We primarily serve Edisto Beach in Colleton County and Edisto Island, Adams Run, Meggett, Ravenel and Hollywood in Charleston County, SC.
We are a registered SC Non Profit Charity made up of a small group of volunteers who primarily help stray, abandoned and found dogs.We exist solely from donations and fund raisers. There are no paid staff members, only volunteers who do this because we love dogs. We pick up abandoned and stray dogs when notified and we accept surrenders of stray dogs that show up at people's homes or are picked up on the side of the road by locals and tourists alike. We only accept surrenders in cases of death, serious illness, and serious financial hardship. We help people rehome their pets through Petfinder.com, Adoptapet.com and our Facebook page. Our primary mission is to provide veterinary care, food, shelter and love to get our rescues healthy and socialized enough to be adopted. This includes an initial exam by our veterinarians, Dr. Ann Glover, Mobile Vet, or Dr. Brock Sauls of Southside Animal Hospital, heartworm tests, shots, medicines and medical treatment needed if financially feasible, and spaying or neutering. Volunteers pet, play and walk our rescues at least twice a day if at all possible. We like to have foster homes for our rescues whenever possible. Rescues not in foster homes are kept in a covered outdoor shelter located on private property on Oyster Factory Rd, Edisto Island. Rescues ready for adoption are sometimes taken for Adoption Days at Edisto True Value hardware, Tractor Supply in Ravenel, and other locations by invitation. We write monthly articles about our rescues, our organization and general pet care in the local monthly Edisto News.
Come Meet our Pets:
Because we are located on private property our pets must be seen by appointment by calling or texting Margaret at 843-869-3869 or emailing AnimalLoversOfEdisto@gmail.com.
Our Adoption Process:
We require a minimum adoption donation of $75 to $100 depending on the dog. We have an application form and contact the adopter's veterinarian. Our application asks adopters to certify that they have a fenced yard or that the pet will be kept indoors and that the pet will be maintained on heartworm and flea preventative and kept up to date on annual shots. The application also asks adopters to certify that they will ask Animal Lovers for assistance in rehoming the pet in the event they cannot keep it for some reason at any time in the future.
