I recently brought home a german shepherd who needed heartworm treatment. The staff at the shelter was efficient and on top of what she needed and took care of it without cost to me. Every person I came in contact with, from my adoption counselor to the person who answered the phone was caring, respectful, and never missed a beat.

This team is truly a group of dedicated people who have a great love and care for their animals and for doing the right thing by them. Thank you Peggy Adams ! You all do incredible and important work. Carolyn B

I had a cat I got from a shelter many years ago when he was just 5 months old and he lived to be 22 years old. He died two years ago and I decided to get a dog this time. I researched breeds and decided on a King Charles Cavalier. I got on the waiting list at Peggy Adams as well as several others. One day I received an email saying Peggy Adams had a King Charles Cavalier ready for adoption. I jumped in my car and drove to the shelter and met Finn. He was a beautiful dog who just turned 7 so we were both seniors. I received a lot of good advise from Michele, a fantastic adoption counselor. I was given time to take him for a walk and get to know him. I was happy to take him home with me and he loved the car ride. We have become great buddies and I am busy learning how to be a responsible and capable dog owner. I can call the behavior hot line when I have questions and the to-do list I was given is very helpful. Finn is a great addition to my household and I have not felt alone for one second since he came into my life. I am also getting a lot of good exercise and fresh air when I take him for 2 or 3 long walks each day. The neighbors are coming out of the woodwork to meet and greet Finn and even bring him treats. What fun to have Finn in my life. Thank you for all the great work you do at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue!

After having lost our 4 year old kitty to Leukemia, we visited Peggy Adams for a new kitty. It was beyond a wonderful experience as adopting a new cat was new to us as our other kitty found us as a stray. So, Dan learned about our story and found us the Perfect cat to fill the void. My Dad and I adopted Minka but we changed her name to Miss Daisy. She is an 8 months old black cat who is pure delight. She plays and loves and is the perfect companion for my dad. She makes us laugh with her silly little games and she sleeps next to my dad every night. Peggy Adams is a lovely, clean facility with caring people. Dan was right on with his match for us with Little Miss Daisy. A huge shout out to Dan for his excellence in finding the perfect home for Daisy !

I had been going to Peggy Adams at least twice a month for about 6 months now and it was always to look at the dogs and pay them some attention and I would always leave loving one...well 2/2/15 Sammy the Pitbull caught our eye and our plan wasn't to actually leave with him, however that's what happened. It was such an easy process, very organized and they explained Sammys story, offered us training classes free of charge afterwards that happened on Saturdays...It was just a great process. Meeting Sammy was very overwhelming at first he was full of POWERFUL ENERGY!! Well he has done a complete 360 and is such a loving caring cute pup...By rescuing you save a life!!

Me and my wife recently adopted a dog from Peggy Adams. The staff and volunteers there are nice and helpful, and didn't mind answering any questions we had. We met with both Michelle and Dan during our adoption process. They where both very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process. We eventually found a very loving new family member named Magic, and he has already won our hearts over. I would greatly recommend this facility and will be coming back soon for some basic pet training. Thank you for your help!

I had heard about Peggy Adams Animal Rescue from seeing things in the media. It seemed like the only choice for us really, as we don't support pet stores as a place to get a pet. I actually would like to see an end to pet stores altogether, because the animals are often sickly, have been poorly taken care of, and I believe most if not all come from puppy mills etc... I would strongly encourage anyone wishing to adopt a new family member to come and visit Peggy Adams Animal Rescue. We had never been, and I can tell you I was really impressed with their facility! It's beautiful, clean, and inviting to all. We already have two beautiful Goldens at home, and for her 10th birthday my daughter Hannah wanted a sweet new kitty to add to the mix! Everyone was very nice and helpful from the start, and we were allowed to roam freely in the feline area, spending as much time as we wished visiting with and holding all the cats and kittens we could handle! My daughter even sat in a rocking chair and rocked with a potential candidate purring happily in ️her lap!! How cool is that?! She ultimately chose a 9mo. old black kitty she named Jinxi. We made a $100 donation as our adoption fee, which I think is a tremendously fair amount considering how much they put into caring for their animals! Jinxi (formerly B.J.), regularly saw a veterinarian, received vaccinations, and was neutered as well. That is a tremendous value for the cost! We also purchased supplies in their on-site store such as litter, litter pan, feeding bowls, collar, toys etc... I would SO much rather buy these items at Peggy Adams than at a pet store because they are VERY reasonably priced AND the funds go right back into the facility and the animals! It's a win-win and we will definitely be back. Thank you!!!!!

Jeannie Smith and Hannah

We adopted twice from Peggy Adams and couldn't be happier with our decision. Both of our dogs were perfect matches for our family. Such a wonderful organization of truly caring people. We will definitely be back!! Thank you for your hard work and dedication for these precious souls!

I am so grateful to the staff at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, especially Jan Peeler for she found the perfect little dog for me and my husband. The state of the art facility is so clean and welcoming. I am sure that the cats and dogs who arrive there to be adopted, feel a little more safe and secure with the kindnesses shown to them. I could not be more pleased.

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

I would not make any
