ALOE needs YOU!

To be a volunteer, all you need to do is love dogs, sign up for a day or days of your choosing and not mind getting a little dirty. In exchange, you will get tons of doggie hugs and kisses!

You can help care for the pets at our kennels by walking, feeding and cleaning. We also encourage you to take dogs to the beach, for a trail run or just give them lots of pats and love. We also need occasional volunteers for festivals and adoption days.

Thanks for helping!



Look no further than the Green Boat Liquor & Revel parking lot every Thursday from about 11:30 to 1pm.

Animal Lovers of Edisto is Hiring a Shelter Manager


About Us - We are currently staffed by a small group of dedicated volunteers who primarily help abandoned and homeless dogs (and occasional cats) on Edisto.  We provide shelter, food and care to our rescues; vetting, feeding and walking them twice a day. We vaccinate, test for heartworms, medically transport and spay/neuter as needed.  Our funding is through donations and fundraisers. Our volunteer teams manage the intake, adoption, transportation, daily care, social media and website.

About the Position - This is a part-time position located on Edisto Island, SC.  If you love animals, we need someone to oversee the facility, implement the shelter procedures, maintain medical and adoption records, order supplies, serve as a liaison with other shelters, veterinarians and coordinate with the volunteer teams. This position will require dependable transportation and will offer a somewhat flexible schedule.  Special appearances at local events to showcase the dogs would be required. This is not a complete job description – but outlines the basics of the Shelter Manager position.


This Shelter Manager will report to the ALOE Board of Directors.  The hourly rate will be based on experience, but will not be less than $15/hour and not more than 20-25 hours per week. Please send your resume and indication of interest in being one of our team to:


We look forward to hearing from you!
