Our Mission

Edgar County Animal Shelter seeks to provide a high level of animal wellness to insure that animals within our facility are healthy and well-cared for until they can be successfully placed in a home. We also hope to provide timely assistance for the community, and be able to direct community members to animal resources, when the care they need it outside of our scope.

Adoption Policy

- You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt an animal - A current photo ID (drivers license or state ID card) is required to process an adoption - Some species have limits on the number that can be adopted at one time or may have a requirement that they be adopted together or may have restrictions regarding other pets or young children. Please understand these restrictions are in the animal's best interests to give them best chances of success in a new home. - All animals will be spayed/neutered prior to going home - To provide permanent identification, all animals receive a microchip implant. The microchip is registered at the time of adoption. - A two week trial period from the date of adoption is available. If the dog must be returned during the trial period, a refund will be issued. - If at any time you cannot keep your dog, and can not find a suitable placement, we ask that you return it to the animal shelter. *ECAS has the right to refuse any adoption application*
