If you find a lost dog in the City of Edgewater and cannot locate the owner, and can’t hold the pet until you find the owner contact Edgewater Animal Control at 386-424-2000 option 4. There are several lost pet pages/groups on Facebook. If you search Lost Pets Edgewater or Lost Pets Volusia they will all come up for you to post a photo and where you found the pet. The Shelter will also take a lost pet report. When a stray pet is brought into the shelter, we check it for a chip, post it on our pages and attempt to locate the owner. If no owner is located we hold the pet for 72 hours, our vet examines it, we give it vaccinations, we microchip it and spay or neuter if necessary. The pet is then placed up for adoption. If we know the owner we attempt contact for up to 10 days before placing the pet up for adoption.
If you find a dog, please do not try and rehome it. This is someone’s pet, animals get out and a loose pet does not mean a bad owner. Animals get out, people leave doors and gates open. It happens and we try to do all possible to reunite a pet with its people. It that is not possible, we ensure the pet has had proper veterinary care prior to adoption. If you have questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
