I reacused my lab mix from Peggy Adams about 3 months ago. From the minute I walked in, I was impressed with how helpful everyone was and with how clean the entire place was. I found a puppy named Zac and fell in love right away. Michelle helped me to make sure Zac was a good fit for me! She also took the time to go over all the services Peggy Adams offers (shots, training classes, etc). I couldn't be happier with my experience!

Even though it was a very busy time when I visited Peggy Adams and it took a while for someone to help us, it was a really nice experience adopting Salem, our 9 month old kitty. The facilities for the cats is wonderful and you can tell that they are really well taken care of. My kids had a fun time playing with all of the cats. Salem stood out to us and like they say, sometimes the cat picks you. He is a good boy and a sweet addition to our family. We received everything we needed when we adopted him and Jose followed up to see how he is doing. Thank you Peggy Adams and I will definitely recommend others adopt from here!

Was looking for a senior dog rescue and saw Chrissy online, a 9 year old Shih Tzu/poodle mix blind in one eye. All the staff from the response I received to my e-mail to everyone at Peggy Adams was very patient, helpful, professional and truly involved in the animals best interest. They took us to a small room then brought Chrissy to meet us. She is a 12 pound bundle of love that has made our life so much better! The facility is spotless, truly a wonderful place to adopt a pet. Many thanks to everyone who helped us.

We recently moved to a community that allowed pets. We wanted a senior dog that may not be a popular choice and be hard to find a home for. I was online at Adopt a Pet and saw Chrissy at Peggy Adams. I emailed her information to myself and over the next week I kept looking at her picture and information. Something just moved me and on Sunday February 2 we went to see her. Everyone from the staff at the front desk to Michelle who brought Chrissy to a private room so we could meet her were very patient and professional. As it turned out, Chrissy is blind in one eye and requires drops twice a day, a small price to pay for a little bundle of love. The first night she came home, she jumped on the be and has slept with us ever since. We went to the cage area and found them to be very clean and large so the animals are comfortable. We were concerned that Chrissy barked at people and other dogs when we took her for a walk, I was given an appointment with Huck, a behaviorist at Peggy Adams who helped to deal with the issue, not a problem. We are so happy with the help we got from everyone at Peggy Adams and will be looking for a friend for Chrissy in the future.

Lilly, a mixed breed of maybe, Jack Russel, Pappion, Terrier, no one knows for sure, except that she is the BEST! Our rescue of 13 years crossed the rainbow bridge and we needed someone to fill our lonely hearts again. With little prompting from my family and friends I reluctantly went to look for another little dog. My husband and I found ourselves at Peggy Adams. What a wonderful place! We were greeted and all our questions were answered and we went looking. Around the first corner was this little cutie, with sad little eyes. We requested a visit and she was just a perfect match right away. At 7 lbs, we found she had come to Peggy Adams with pneumonia, and then got kennel cough. She had just been declared healthy enough for adoption. and we found her. We did change her name from Molly to Lilly and she is a happy little girl. She regularly goes for check ups and has grown to 10 lbs....no more skinny bones. At 11 months she is still a puppy and loves to play ball. I truly thank Peggy Adams for the wonderful care and the clean facility and everything they did for Lilly to keep her safe until we found her and brought her home. We love her and she has happy playful eyes now. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Marilyn and Gary

Six months ago I found my baby girl kitty on Peggy Adams website and it has been the best 6 months ever/ I am convinced that Mischief my sweet and loveable tortoise shell cat is the smartest cat in the whole world. I can't thank Peggy Adams enough for bringing such joy to my life. I only wish I could adopt more animals. The staff was a real delight to work with and I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

Peggy Adams was very informative and knowledgeable about the beautiful English Cocker Spaniel my family adopted. We really went to the shelter to just adore the animals but immediately fell in love with Lulu and therefore adopted her. We were there during the "adopt a pet for free week" and we were not pressured to pay at all but we waned to make a donation to assist the shelter in caring for the animals.
I highly recommend Peggy Adams to anyone looking to adopt a pet.
