This is my foster Gus and I could say all the things that you hear about every dog looking for a home. But I looked at him last night and this is what I thought: Have you ever met a person that you just wanted to be around because they loved life no matter what it had handed them and when they became your friend you became a better person? That is Gus, just with four legs and fur. Gus is a Hound-Golden Retriever mix, approximately 10 years old. The sweetest and most well-mannered old gentleman you’ll every meet, he loves being around people, snuggling and getting lots of attention in between naps. He also gets along well with other dogs, including playful young pups, and could care less about cats. He has an injured hind leg due to an old break and moves pretty slowly, yet he loves to go on walks and will wander off if given the chance so a fenced yard would be nice. House-trained, in good health and up-to-date on vaccinations, Gus is a spry old gent looking for a loving home in which to enjoy his retirement years. If interested in meeting Gus please email Suzanne at hairyaloe@gmail.com or call 843-901-3029 for an adoption application.

About Animal Lovers of Edisto Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small 501(C)(3) registered SC Non Profit Charity made up of a group of volunteers who primarily help stray and found dogs in nearby communities in Charleston and Colleton Counties. We exist solely from donations and fund raisers. There are no paid staff members, only volunteers who do this because we love dogs. We take in abandoned and stray dogs when notified, and we accept 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 pet surrenders in unusual situations. We help people rehome their pets through Petfinder.com, Adoptapet.com and other social media. 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 vet exam, heartworm test, shots, medicines, and spaying or neutering. Volunteers pet, play and walk our rescues at least twice a day. Rescues not in foster homes are kept in a covered outdoor shelter located on Edisto Island. Our rescues can be seen on our Facebook page, Adoptapet.com and Petfinder.com, and by appointment.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because we are a small all-volunteer rescue group our pets must be seen by appointment. Your first step in adopting one of our pets is to fill out an adoption application. All information on the application must be completed including phone numbers and a vet reference (an old one, or a reason why there is not one) before it will be processed. Please contact Margaret at 843-869-3869 or AnimalLoversOfEdisto@gmail.com for an adoption application, for more information, or to set up a date and time to meet our precious pets.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a minimum adoption donation of $100 to $250 depending on the dog and the amount of money we have invested in vet care. Our application form 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.
