Animal Control

Lost Pets Standard Operating Procedure

The Town of Edisto Beach cannot accept lost animals, due to liability issues.  The rental companies will be given temporary collars to give to renters to write a phone number (local, vacation or cell number) and the pet’s name should the pet get lost.

If found in the town, the person finding the pet can either call the owner or Animal Control at 843-893-2651.  Ask for Director Laura Clark.

If found on the island, the person finding the pet can call either the owner or Animal Lovers of Edisto (ALOE) Canine Rescue at 843-869-3869.

All Town personnel will be given this information.  Should anyone call Town Hall, employees will be directed to provide caller with numbers to call.
