Went into pet store for random supplies...came out with an adorable cuddly kitten. Already spayed and healthy and very well adjusted considering her back story. Took her to the vet and she got her rabies shot with no issue and she tested negative for those awful feline diseases. All in all a great experience and
I know my $150 donation will go to great use.

The people at PeggyAdams rescue were terrific. I don’t know how they do it. I’d want to take all the animals home with me. The place was very clean and the animals were well cared for. They conduct a good check of potential adoptive parents and provided the health records for each animal. We took home an amazing little cat that has fit in great in our home and become BFF’s with our existing cat. Thank you so much for what you do.

My sister recently had to euthanize her beloved Molly, and this organization could not have been more understanding and respectful. My sister and Molly were not in a cold, sterilized examination room, but a room much like a cozy living room. Everything was done at my sister’s pace, with no rush, and everyone she came into contact with treated them both with dignity—right through to Molly’s end. As any pet lover knows, when that time comes, it is so difficult.
She was able to adopt a “senior for seniors” afterward in honor of Molly. All those in the adoption department were respectful of her loss and gentle when helping her make a decision. The people I spoke with on the phone in both departments were so helpful. Peggy Adams is a “class act”, and as an animal lover, I appreciate their efforts.

After the loss of our 12yr old, rescued RatChi in early May, we realized how much we missed having a dog in our home. Our two senior cats, brought up with our dogs, appeared to be as sad as we were following this loss. We went to Peggy Adams rescue to look for that " just right" addition to our family.
We were very impressed with the knowledge, compassion and professionalism of our Adoption Counselor, Julie. After much discussion of our family and the personality of a dog that would fit into our home and enjoy living with two cats, we were introduced to two sweet, small mix breed dogs. Both were described as "Wallflowers", very quiet and easily frightened. Our Winni was the second of the "meet and greet" pups. Her quick lick on my face before leaving the office sealed the deal. We have been happy everyday since. She is no longer a Wallflower and is much more a Busybee and a bit of a Goof. She keeps us laughing and she is adjusting so quickly to life with my husband and I and the cats.
We have had dogs and cats throughout our many years of marriage and all have been rescues. We consider our choice to adopt from Peggy Adams the wisest decision and the easiest, most effective process we have ever experienced. The staff and volunteers at Peggy Adams are clearing animal lovers and devoted to getting their charges to not just a home but to the best furever home.
Winni popped a suture on her spay incision and I called the clinic and got up there early to have her checked out. The Vets and staff were wonderful. With antibiotics and some activity restriction, Winni was completely healed in a few days. We have since had her checked by our Vet and he was quite impressed with her and found her healthy and charming.
Just to add that their Shop is fantastic; they have a lovely assortment of items at great prices. We have returned to say hello to Julie and to purchase Winni's heartworm medication and food supplies. Although we thought Winni might not find a visit back there easy, she recognized several staff/volunteers and appeared as happy to see them and they appeared to see her. Thank you to all at Peggy Adams for helping us find Winni.

Wow! So impressed by the adoption process at Peggy Adams! Their website is great, and we found Zeus there before we met him in person---- but once we got there, we met so many amazing dogs that when we finally met our adoption specialist, Holly, we had quite a list! She helped us narrow down our search to a dog that was suitable to our family and our home.....and it was meant to be! Zeus has a forever home, and has been a blessing to us! Thank you Peggy Adams!!!

Yesterday we adopted our second dog from Peggy Adams. We adopted a dog about 9 years ago from Peggy Adams and he was wonderful. He passed away last year. Yesterday I went back and adopted a female who seems to be just what I needed. What I liked most is the thorough history they go over with you so I knew a lot about Bella before I decided to adopt her and give her a forever home. Since I wanted to adopt an adult dog I think the history is very important. I was able to have a “meet and greet” with our present male dog. Everything went easily and I loved working with Margi because she was thorough and didn’t rush me through. Thank you to you all!!

Very willing and helpful staff! I adopted my best friend Tiger from this organization. Even tho my puppy was adopted and returned 3 times, the amazing team never gave up on him until he found his forever home. They neautered him, treated him for heartworm, sicknesses, and an ear infection and kept him utd on all his vaccines. I fell in love with his sweet personality and am so thankfully Peggy Adams gives innocent animals like Tiger the chances they deserve. I donated every dollar I could to their organization for him. If you’re looking for a best friend, Peggy Adams is the place to go. A big thank you to all the counselors and behavior specialists that helped me find the dog of my dreams!

After losing 2 family pets in 3 years we decided to close our hearts back in 2010. On Dec 31,2017 we adopted Cici or shall I say she rescued us! She has been a Joy, and has been the most affectionate gentle animal we could have ever asked for! We believe she was meant for us and are so blessed to have been chosen by her to be her furrever parents

Staff was great, accomodating. Saw a cat we wanted to bring home! While waiting, he was already adopted out. I "James" was spending some time in a different room ran into KeKe, brought Michelle to see her! Turned out for the better, we have no girls! KeKe came home and settled in pretty fast with the others! She a great addition, with her joyfull/pushy personality! One 14 year old male pitbull (Damien), two male black cats. Bobtail-(Tike) Shy-(Pepper), and now crazy/fun-(KeKe)... Tyke came from Peggy Adam as well, and was our Daughters cat, who had recently passed away. So we took Tyke in, and now we have 3 cats and one Dog... These animals/New family members, have really helped us get through some bad times, giving us unconditional love and helping us laugh a lot! They all get along really well!!! Thank you guys at Peggy Adam, You guys are the best!

This is our new baby Brady who we adopted from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue. Brady was at our local Pet Supermarket and melted my heart. The adoption process was smooth and the wonderful staff at Peggy Adams followed up with us post adoption to check in on Brady’s transition to his forever home. Thank you Peggy Adams Animal Rescue!

The adoption was a breeze and the fact that she's microchipped really puts my mind at ease, knowing that if she got out, she can easily be returned to us. Peggy Adams, we loved doing business with you and we're SO happy to see pet stores carrying your animals. We couldn't be more happy! Beans is our newest member and we love her and so do our dogs! She plays with them and takes no nonsense from them. LOL She's the best!

It was an ordinary afternoon. Ordinary, at least for a little while. Somehow, through the great art of conversation, my husband and I decided to go see some cats who were up for adoption. This brought us to Peggy Adams. We parked the car. Then we got out. The air smelled nice. There's a certain aroma that a place that does a great thing has. We walked in. It was big. Lot's of people worked there. Someone greeted us. She led us to the cats. Really, going there, I did not know what to expect. I was very surprised. All the cats were in rooms. These had glass doors. I thought it was clean and pleasant. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They answered questions on behavior, health, and adjustment issues. My cat, Athena, has become family. Furthermore, let me say this: I have a good friend who helps stray cats. Peggy Adams has spayed or neutered a number of his pets, under a grant program. Peggy Adams is clean. It is just a great place. Peggy Adams is doing a wonderful thing.

Thank you Dan for our new addition to our family. My son received her on Christmas and immediately named her Cookie because she looks like an Oreo. She is very lovable and playful. She is a perfect match for me and my family. You were so helpful and patient. Thank you again for this precious gift!!

We adopted Jinx from Peggy Adams and we couldn't be happier. He is a sweet and loving kitten and is having a ball getting to know his new brother, our cat, Muffin, and sister, our dog, Cali. Peggy Adams made the adoption process simple and choosing a cat was fun, as they had several rooms with cats and kittens to sit with until we decided on Jinx. We look forward to many years of fun with our little circus!

Mom and I adopted a wonderful little chihuahua named Rio in March of 2017. Mom had just lost her 16 year old chi companion. The staff at Peggy Adams were very understanding and compassionate. Our adoption coordinator showed us a few pictures of the dogs in their care. Each dog has a detailed description of their personality and medical history. We chose the little guy that looked like he needed us the most. He was so small, just 5 pounds and depressed. He just melted into Mom's arms, we knew he was the one. The adoption process went very smoothly. We were happy to purchase supplies from the Boutique as this little gut needed all new stuff of his very own. He just loves squeaky toys! We will continue to use the Peggy Adams vaccine clinic for his vaccines. The staff there really care about the animals.

Maddi is just the sweetest dog! Her personality has blossomed since the day I saw her at your shelter. While she may not look happy in her rain coat she enjoys her walks. Even in her Halloween costume she still managed to look adorable :)
