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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of anything I'd change. Very well run organization.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.

My wonderful little Pika (19 + yrs old) had passed away and I wanted to make a home for another little rescue. Although not looking for a kitten I ended up with an adorable 2 month old. The staff was very helpful and the animals are kept in virtually spotless condition. I received a wonderful, healthy little girl cat and named her Kattie. She's now almost 5 months old, adorable, curious, strong and growing prettier every day.
Peggy Adams also provides inexpensive vaccination services. In addition, you will go home after adopting with a supply of high quality dry food. Just a wonderful place.

My husband & I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on August 15th of this year. Our gift to each other was to be a furbaby. We had lost our sweet loving cat of 14 years in April & felt by August we would be ready to adopt a rescue. I was a ShihTsu rescue Mommy prior to our marriage & had decided that I wanted a furbaby who would also get me out of the house & walking. We sent to Peggy Adams just willing to look. We found one sweet little baby who was already adopted pending surgery. I requested that if that adoption didn't go thru, could we be 2nd listed. The wonderful lady who was working with us, putting all our information in the computer as we told her all our info, found this sweet loving black & white Lhasa or Shih tsu, who was 5 years old, trained, sweet, & has completed our home.
I was so pleased with our experience. How I wish we were allowed more that one pet in our complex, as there's plenty of room in my heart for more, but rules are rules.
Thank you again

Ilene & Barry Goldberg, & Tibby Too :o)))

I hear od Peggy Adams from a friend so that same night the facility was on the news with a horrible story. I saw a dog that I have liked to meet, and I drove to the facility. I found a beautiful facility, friendly workers, very clean kennels and all aminals where safe, clean and seemed ok.

I would recomend anyone looking for a pet to try Peggy Adam's place, get to know the volunters, and the other staff, get to see the pets hoping for a good home. Don't let yourself down, we all need someone or thing to love and to love us back, what better to have a pet, they don't hold grudges, dislike you or get angry at you, they are always there with love and more to give. So try looking for your pet at Peggy Adams, you will be happy and suprized to see this place

On May '14 a friend Marcela and I saw a big, HUGE dog - Huskita - abandoned on the street. We had some food on the car and we invited him into the car...he jumped! We went straight to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue. When we got there a VERY nice staff helped us to received this big gentle giant. They took a very good care of him...I was thinking on him for more than two months and I mentioned to my friend...if the dog is still there I will pick him up...he was there...I saw his picture online....I went there and all the staff gave me all the information, support and his medical history and they were very good organized....then I took him at home...where I have another female dog...her name is Milla...they were VERY good together BUT for me was a drastic change on my live...after too stressful 5 days...I was ready to returned him to the shelter...I didn't want to take that decision because he was so nice, very good behavior, cute and very intelligent dog...I needed a little more time to understand him...but I collapsed into my couch crying like a baby with my hands on my face...Milla came to my left side licking me...and at my right side BLUE came and he started licking me also.....I gave him a chance...he gave me a chance...and I am VERY happy that I took that decision. HE WILL STAY WITH US FOREVER.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...do nothing else. They followed me up and they were closer me all the time...answering all my questions and doubts.
