Hints to keep your pets home safe.
If your pet gets lost
If you lose a pet, the first thing that you should do is notify us. That way, if someone sees your lost pet and calls us regarding what they believe to be a "stray" we will be able to reunite you right away. Come visit us in person, talk with neighbors, hand out flyers, contact other area shelters (Southeast Volusia in New Smyrna at 386-428-9860 and Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach at 386-274-4704). Most of all, don’t give up. Keep canvassing the neighborhood, place a lost ad in the newspaper, consider offering a small reward, revisit us and the other area shelters.
If your pet is with us
In the event that your lost animal has been admitted to Edgewater Animal Services there are return to owner fees which are payable at the time of pick up.
Return to owner fees are $50.00 for the first day, $15.00 each additional day plus license fee (if applicable). Additional fees are required if treated or medicated.
We ask that you bring your driver’s license and proof of your pets’ rabies vaccines for pet pick up. Animals are held for a three day stray period, then, if they are healthy and friendly, they are placed up for adoption. If you do not claim your animal within the three day stray period that animal legally belongs to Edgewater Animal Services.
Each dog and cat within The City of Edgewater shall be registered once each year with a city license tag. If your pet is not current at the time of pick up, you may receive a citation. If this is a first offense, the officer may allow you to purchase the tag at the time of pick up. That is up to the discretion of the officer.
