A huge thank you to Jan at Peggy Adams! We had been trying to adopt a miniature schnauzer mix for some time and she helped us find the sweetest puppy! We do not live near the shelter so Jan and the staff went the extra mile to accommodate our needs in picking up our puppy. We were so pleased how well our dog was cared for while in the care of Peggy Adams, and they were incredibly helpful in getting us the information needed of how to care for her (we're first time dog owners). This is a fantastic place to adopt a pet!

My husband and I were in on Saturday and adopted a beautiful little blonde named Jada. As soon as we saw her sweet face, we fell in love. She is obviously still adjusting to our schedule, but she is making herself right at home. We are going to work on bringing her out of her shell and her separation anxiety issues. We are confident that through love and patience that she will eventually see that our home is her home forever. Here are a few snapshots of her in her new home.

Thank you so much for allowing us to become her puppy parents. She is a welcomed addition to our little family. Your staff was so wonderful in helping us to understand our little girl's past and needs for the future. I am so thankful that you have full time behaviorists in the event that we need additional help in acclimating Jada's fur-brother to the pack life.

I was mourning the loss of my Cavalier recently and fell into a depression.. ..One day while getting supplies for the pool my daughter said "We're going to the shelter" The shelter did not have any dogs we were interested in so she took me to Peggy Adams.......As we were leaving we passed a volunteer walking 3 beautiful Chihuahuas and I asked them if they had been adopted....Only 2 were leaving the one we liked best....we asked for her name and without saying anything we literally bolted for the front door and asked for forms to fill out......We met with Emily who brought in the Chihuahua who was shy and fearful.. Gabby is 1,5 years old and had a medical issue they were taking care of....So we took her home 2 days later.....Not only the care they give these animals but the connections they have build with Home Again a chip company unlike any I have dealt with before...Then the Pet insurance. They have physicians on site.....they offer free spaying and neutering of any animal that is owned in Palm Beach County. They have built a system that is 100% dedicated to the preservation of animals and keeping them healthy. My father was a dog breeder and I never thought about adopting. I am so glad I did. Gabby bonded with us immediately and after walking her twice knew exactly what her house was. She knows her name and is meeting other dogs as we walk.
Not only was Gabby lucky to find us, we feel so lucky to have found her and grateful to Peggy Adams for what that facility does for animals and for making this possible. Its staff is absolutely wonderful. Many thanks to Emily!!

I have been looking at the Peggy Adams site for many weeks to find a cat for my sister that lives on the west coast of FL. A few days before Christmas I saw kitten that reminded me of a Himalayan I had many years ago. He has one over the hearts of many in a new household, even a grandmother that was never a "cat person". His personality is very loving and as you can see he is adorable. The process at Peggy Adams when adopting him was fast and painless. I will definitely go back if I am every looking for another pet!

I started as a foster at Peggy Adams; 6 kittens! They provide a playpen, food and litter...all you provide is love and care! We ended up adopting one of those kittens. Jay helped us with the adoption and everything went smoothly. Then we went back for a playmate for her when our older cat passed. Jay again to the rescue!!! The entire team at Peggy Adams. If you aren't looking for a full commitment, but want to have animals in your life; contact Shannon about fostering. If you want to have a friend for life...jay is the man! Thanks to everyone I didn't mention in here...because from the volunteer greeters to the veterinarians this shelter is top notch.

We were foster parents for a cat and her four kittens. It was a wonderful experience. The training and support we received from the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League was first rate. They provided excellent followup and guidance to make sure the animals were doing well and in hands.

We adopted our beautiful black ketten from the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. The people there are very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The shelter is very clean and the animals are well taken care of. The adoption process is thorough but not burdensome. The shelter provides a host of services in case there are issues after you bring the pet home. I don't think you can find a better place to adopt a pet.

There's something magical about the animals that come out of Peggy Adams. My wife and I adopted 2 kittens about a year and a half ago from Peggy Adams and they are unlike any other cats I've ever owned or known in the past! For starters, they are cuddle bugs! The foster team at Peggy Adams must have given my two kittens an abundance of love because Minnie and Nala have grown up to be extremely sociable, loving, and cuddly creatures!

Thank you, Peggy Adams for providing an amazing service in our community!

I have been involved with Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League since 2008. All the while we had pure bred dogs. We never adopted a dog from the League or any other shelter. That all changed this past fall. I am now the proud owner of a great rescue dog. He might be the smartest dog we have ever owned. But that is not the point of this "review." After going through that adoption process, I got to see how great the League and its staff are "in action." Thoroughly professional. Very helpful, thoughtful and kind. This dog was about a year and a half old and this poodle mix had never been groomed, never had shots, was not neutered and was not "chipped." Except for the grooming (he had to be shaved) the League took care of it all very quickly. Within about 3 to 4 days we took our dog home.

If you are in the West Palm Beach area, you need to visit Peggy Adams and see what is going on there.
