Edgefield County Council has been looking at updating the Animal Control ordinances of the County in anticipation of the completion of a new Animal Care and Control facility to be located off Rabit Trail. This will be the first facility of its type in Edgefield County and our current ordinances are insufficient to work as basic guidelines.

These updates have been discussed in the previous two council meetings and will be coming up for a public hearing soon. Linked below is a copy of the proposed ordinances that will be discussed in that public hearing, and the areas we have adjusted for clarity due to citizen concerns are texted in green for user convenience.

For citizens new to this please read the document in its entirety, for those concerned with the latest changes please review the areas in green. All comments or concerns may be directed to Hart Clark at Hclark@edgefieldcounty.sc.gov.
