Review for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League of the Palm Beaches Inc, West Palm Beach, FL, USA
A friend of mine suggested Peggy Adams when our sweet Cat Lucy died and I wanted her cremated. My husband and I were devastated over the lost of Lucy but if there were anyway to make these times easier Peggy Adams helped us through it.
After 3 weeks I was not doing well without Lucy and decided to stop at our veterinarian which is right up the street from where we live which I past twice a day to and from work. Finally one day my car just steered itself in. I wanted to see if this beautiful black cat was still there waiting to be adopted and low & behold there she was.
"Jazzy" had been at the Vet's since November of 2012 and no one would adopt her. When I heard the story of Jazzy I could not say NO and adopted her immediately.
Jazzy had been in her cage in the waiting room for almost 2 years and was use to a very busy office and a lot of noise and both my husband and I work so I felt she was lonely and needed a friend. Now mind you, I had no intensions of adopted another animal!
After about 2 weeks with "Jazzy" I felt we had no choice but to get her a brother or sister.
Soooooooo I called my husband at work and asked him to come home early so we could go to "Peggy Adams" and check out a playmate for Jazzy. When we got to Peggy Adams everyone was so kind, sweet and extremely knowledgeable which was so amazing to me for all the cats that were available! My husband picked out the cutest faced kitten and off we went in one of the glassed in rooms to spend time with "Bailey". There were adult cats roaming freely which I thought was wonderful and "Bailey" just kept close to my husband and stayed as far away from the adult cats as possible. One of the women came in and checked on us occasionally and I asked her if she had a black kitten that we could also visit with and she came back with a feisty little guy named "Woddy". After another half hour of spending time with both "Bailey" & "Woody" the same women came back and said "I am sorry but we are starting to close so you will only have another half hour, however you can come back tomorrow and spend as much time as you would like in order to make your decision". I said "no" we will be taking one of these kittens home with us before we leave here. So my husband went and filled out the paperwork not knowing which kitten we would be taking and on his and our wonderful helper's return, "Bailey" was sound asleep on my shoulder with her face was up against mine and "Woddy" was sound asleep on my stomach. The women walked in first and said "OH OH!" It was so cute! Then my husband came in and the look on his face was "Oh My GOD who am I going to send back to the cat condo and who is going to be coming home with us?" It was obvious to me that the only answer was going to be "we will take them both." Which we did! "Jazzy, "Bailey" and "BIG" (formerly "Woddy") were meant to be with each other form birth. They have all given my husband and I a complete heart that was broken from the loss of our "Lucy".
Peggy Adams was a clean, friendly and healthy atmosphere and if I could adopt more I would from "Peggy Adams". Our new kittens came with all the details needed to continue there healthy lives and reminders of when exam's and shots etc. are due. They were both neutered & spade and micro chipped as well. Such an organized operation. Very Impressive!
Thank you so much to that kind women who was so patient with us and I feel horrible I do not remember your name.
I encourage everyone to visit Peggy Adams and donate your time and or money for such a wonderful facility.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
If at all possible............. offer free or discounted neutering & spading and advertise heavily. (perhaps you already do?) Support laws as much as possible to implement heavy fines and serve community service and/or serve time in jail to eliminate abuse & abandonment (again, perhaps you already do) we need all pets registered as well. Oh my I have written a book! Hahahaha! Sorry for going on & on!
