Animal Lovers of Edisto Canine Rescue

Our Mission

Animal Lovers of Edisto Canine Rescue is made up of a small group of volunteers who primarily help abandoned and homeless dogs on Edisto Island.  We are also a Rescue Partner with Colleton County Animal Shelter, Walterboro,SC. There are no paid full time staff and only occasional part time employees. Our primary mission is to rescue stray, abandoned and found dogs on Edisto Island, Edisto Beach, Adams Run, Meggett, Ravenel, Hollywood and from Colleton County Animal Shelter. Only under very unusual circumstances are we able to take surrenders because we are a very small no kill shelter.  However we will help pet owners rehome a pet via Petfinder and Adoptapet and our Facebook page.  We provide shelter, food and TLC to our rescues, vetting, feeding and walking them twice a day.  We also bring them up to date on vaccinations, do a heartworm test, and spay or neuter each and then find them loving forever homes.  If a rescue needs additional medical treatment that is provided as well if at all possible.  Animal Lovers exists solely from donations and fund raisers. We are not a county, city or town animal shelter and receive no federal money. We are too small to qualify for grants.

Adoption Policy

Anyone wishing to adopt one of our dogs or puppies should contact our Adoption Team at to request an adoption application and to meet a dog. They will set up a date and time for you to meet the dog or puppy and email you an adoption application. Meetings are generally scheduled from 10am to dark, seven days a week as volunteers are available to meet with you. Sometimes a dog can be brought to your home.

Because we are located on private property all visits to meet our rescues are on a scheduled basis.  You can contact us at, or by using the Contact Form on our web site, or by sending a message on our Facebook Page. Thank you for considering our furry friends.
