The Peggy Adams rescue was a great experience for me. I recently lost a cat of 18 years. Peggy Adams helped me to pick a new cat hat would fit into our home. Having other pets in the household i knew this would not going to be an easy task, but with there help it was. Our new 8 year old cat could not be happier.
Thanks Again
Pete

After losing my pet of 19 years I wasn’t sure I wanted another kitty, I was a huge loss to my wife and I, but after a few months the house seemed very empty when I or my wife returned home at night. We live in MA. But had friends in Boynton Beach who called us before Thanksgiving and asked if we were ready for a new kitten, a neighbor of theirs cat had had kittens a few weeks earlier. We got pictures of the litter and picked out 2 we wanted from photos (you can’t just have 1). We flew down for Thanksgiving with a carrier very excited. When we arrived we found out the neighbor had taken the litter to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue, because she didn’t think we were serious about coming down to adopt the kittens. We got in the car and drove over in hopes of finding them.
I was amazed to find such a fantastic Animal Rescue. I had never seen anything like it up in MA.
We were greeted and explained our problem. They tried and help us locate the kittens, but they were already gone. We decided we weren’t going home empty handed. We spent the next 2 hours driving poor Lori crazy playing with the kittens and finally picked 2. While finishing the adoption I was shocked to be handed a full medical report on both kitten’s and the amount of attention they had already had.
This is really a special place for anyone who would like to adopt a special animal in their life or 2.
Kittens are adjusting to the snow in MA, but both doing great

I adopted my cat here and the staff took the time to give me the cat's history and also to make sure that he was a great fit with our family. He was a very clean, healthy, and happy cat who adjusted to the move very quickly. All the cats there were well-loved by the staff and volunteers and it shows. We couldn't be happier with our Toffee, who's such a sweet, loving cat.

I went there to look for a female cat. i was greeted by a volunteer and filled out an application. I was matched up with a number of different cats. I originally went there to see a siamese cat but it was being fostered at the time. i did go online and saw the photos of all the available females. my 2nd choice from the pictures was a female named mucci. I was brought in to see her and it was love at first site for me and for the cat. she came over to me, jumped in my lap,was purring and just looked so loveable. I decided to adopt her and i am glad i did because another person was also interested in her. It was my luck that i said yes first. the staff and the volunteers were so friendly and knowledgeable about all the cats and kittens. it was explained to me about her health, her likes and her medical history. adopting her and changing her name to shayna was so easy. when i brought her home and released her into my condo, it took only 5 minutes for her to look like she lived there. having just survived cancer surgery i was advised by my doctor to get some kind of a emotional support or therapy animal. adopting her was one of the best decisions i have ever made. your staff knew what i was looking for and matched me up with the best, loveable, affectionate cat ever. keep up the good work and i have recommended your shelter to so many senior citizens looking for pets

My family has adopted several pets over the years from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League of the Palm Beaches.
It's wonderful. I can't say enough to praise the love and care that the animals receive at Peggy Adams, the staff and the volunteers are devoted, and patient, what's more the facility is kept very clean.
We love Peggy Adams.

We lost a dog and were looking for a companion for our other dog. We were invited to Peggy Adams and not only found the perfect dog, but one that has brought so much joy into our lives, and all who meet her. We were so impressed with the care and attention that the staff at Peggy Adams gave to the adoption process. The dog was well trained and obviously cared for at the facility. It was obvious that volunteers and professionals love the work they do and they do it very well. We could not have been happier to receive the little bundle we call Coco. The facilities are outstanding, and it clearly shows how well the staff care for the animals in their trust.

What a surprise to find a wonderful shelter. I had not known about Peggy Adams until I went with my daughter. There were many kittens and cats for adoption. I could not get over the loving care that the attendants gave the animals. They were all so well cared for and happy. While I was waiting for my daughter to get her kitten examined, I spotted a little siamese mix kitten sleeping all curled up and not playing with the other kittens in hjer area. I was allowed to pick her up and fell in love with her. She had no tail and had just been spayed. I adopted her immediately. I took her home. That was seven weeks ago. I could not be happier.

Peggy Adams is by far the most loving shelter for animals. The attendants there are devoted and loving.

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

Not change a thing, but I would love to see them expand tom other parts of Florida. They are very special.

I absolutely love Peggy Adams. In the past 15 years I've rescued 2 cars & recently 2 jack Russell puppies (talk about luck). We went there to adopt one female puppy for my 4 year old daughter but we feel in love with her brother as well. It was Christmas time so we were able to name or price. The draft and volunteers are very carrying and accommodating. if that hasn't sold you then you'll love that they offer FREE doggy training classes on Saturday. This is the place to adopt, no need to look further.

We were looking for a small older dog to love and keep us company. I looked on adopt a pet for about a week and e-mailed stories and pictures to myself of many dogs. i kept going back and looking at Chrissy, a 9 year old poodle/shitzu mix with special needs. I e-mailed them and received a prompt reply from Linda Weissman. She was very honest about Chrissy, timid and her eye issue. We went to Peggy Adams 2/02/2014 to meet Chrissy, Michelle took us into a room and brought Chrissy in, she loves tennis balls so she played with one while with us, then another young lady (unfortunately I can't remember her name) who fostered Chrissy came in to describe her to us. Everyone was very patient, I couldn't ask for a kinder group of volunteers. We adopted Chrissy, our first night together, she slept on our bed with us. This day was especially significant as it was the 3 year anniversary our last dog Teddy passed away, it was absolutely a coincidence, I think Teddy helped us find Chrissy. They have a senior to senior program, if a person over 55 adopts a dog over 5 years old there is no charge for the dog. I was so impressed with their program, I made a donation anyway.

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

Absolutely nothing.
