There are no words in any language to describe the beauty of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue people. Having always lived a privileged life, I was devastated to find that I was now flat broke, homeless and living in a park. Circumstances of life, not drugs or alcohol. I was accepted into a homeless program but declined going without my dog, Buddy. God answered every prayer I had and then some. I was given a chance to get back on my feet and Peggy Adams has a program wherein they fostered my dog while I was in the program and allowed fifteen (15) extra days after exiting the program to pick up my dog.

Having been on the street for a little while, his health suffered. As any responsible parent, I was apprehensive about my Buddy being taken from me and placed with other people. Buddy was with Peggy Adams, particularly Sue Jackson as well as her volunteer assistant, Jane, and the whole Peggy Adams staff and was very well taken care of. I have made them his honorary godparents.

I will always be grateful for this agency and its very existence. Rather than call his vet, I will call Sue and Jane with my questions - then his vet to see if he concurs. They returned a very happy, healthy, nearly 11-year-old dog to me. Buddy is a Jack Russell terrier. He is very territorial and playful - especially with tennis balls. Not too sociable with other dogs. He likes his humans all to himself. Somehow Peggy Adams Animal Rescue broke through that. We recently made a visit to let them know we will never forget them and will keep them in our prayers of praise and thanks.

Good Morning,
I just wanted to give thanks to the Peggy Adams Foundationfor all the organization does. Jagr has been a perfect match for our teenage son and our other dog. Still working on the housebreaking and what's acceptable behavior, but he's smart as a whip and has a great personality. DON'T ever doubt that you change lives both animals and humans.
Attached picture (BELOW) is Jagr after his first trip to the dog park. He had so much fun!
Merry Christmas from Jagr.

Thank you Peggy Adams for having the perfect dog for our home. We adopted Peony (now known as Penny) and she is such a perfect fit for us. Right from the start she jumped in the car, enjoyed the ride home, and greeted everyone with Love.... humans and dogs... We got a good as expected report on her being she was a stray and not much was known by Peggy Adams. Thank you for giving us our new addition.

I do feel Pearl’s original name Luna (from the shelter) plays a part in my life, as well. Luna is Spanish and the English translation is moon. With that said, Pearl has brought light to my darkness. She has truly touched my heart and soul. We definitely have an unconditional love for one another.

Pearl is the perfect name as she is a special and unique gem. The Bible history about pearls is that God has grains of sand enter the oyster, which irritate the oyster, and it changes over time into a pearl with great value. It's about God breaking things off of us and changing us from the inside out into people (and/or animal) of great Kingdom value. God used Pearl to help change me and break the sadness off my life and she has helped bring great value to my life. She is a true treasure as the pearl/gem that she is, I am truly thankful and grateful to have her as my companion. Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

We have adopted cats from Peggy Adams in the past for our family. Each has been a wonderful addition to our family and lived out their lives with us. We recently adopted a Manx kitty for a special friend who lost her husband and suffers from severe depression. The doctor thought an animal would help. WOW! Thank you Peggy Adams for this wonderful addition to my friend's life. She is doing so much better and she and Baby are the best of friends. I would never adopt any animal but a rescue. I have 7 kittys right now and every one is a rescue or adoption. Spay or Neuter. But DON'T ABUSE OR ABANDON! There IS a home for these wonderful babies.

I have been fostering for Peggy Adams for a few years now, and have always had a wonderful experience with them. All the employees are very kind and helpful, and they really care about the animals. I recently adopted a 5 year old cat and was thrilled with the fact that they were able to tell me about the cat's personality and behavior,so I would feel comfortable with the adoption. She is a great cat and a welcome addition to my home. I would recommend Peggy Adams to anyone looking to adopt a furry friend!

I have been involved with Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League for many years both as an adopter and as a foster volunteer. This organization has proven itself to be well run, a strong and inclusive leader in the community and has forward looking vision with programs that are making a real impact on animal population and welfare.

I recently adopted a 9 yr old Boxer mix from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. She is such a well trained dog! I am amazed that this dog sat in Animal Care and Control for 2 months without being adopted, and then in Peggy Adams for 2 more months. She is a wonderful dog! I had her thoroughly checked by my vet, and he have my dog a clean bill of health. Please, consider adopting!

We just adopted a lovely girl named Macy! It was a wonderful experience and Michele in adoptions was so helpful, knowledgeable and courteous! The lovely dog we adopted was rescued by HSUS and brought Macy to Peggy Adams for adoption! Macy was very frightened and shut down but the staff worked very hard to get her to the adoption stage! She was still very timid and wary when we met her but I am happy to say that their little wall-flower has blossomed into a lovely flower in a very short time! Macy is a black dog and there seems to be a stigma with black dogs, they do not get easily adopted but may I say to you all that is hog-wash it is temperament that counts not color! Thank you to the staff at Peggy Adams that saw the potential in Macy, she will be loved, cherished and spoiled rotten because of your dedication!
