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 :)
I adopted 2 cats from them about six years ago. They have never had any health problems and I love them to death! Peggy Adams never euthanizes and adopting from there helps there mission!
Adopted our dog Lily from Peggy Adams great organization and caring staff they definitely take time to match the animal to the right family our family is extremely thankful.
My two cats came from Peggy Adams. I adopted them as kittens and they were very well socialized. The foster program does a wonderful job getting these little ones off to a great start! The adoption process was easy and positive as well. Thank you Peggy Adams for bringing these two joys into my life!
Our family's recent adoption of June the kitten from Peggy Adams was an incredible experience. We were so impressed by the facilities and the care the staff was providing to these animals in need. The adoption process was very easy but also thorough, demonstrating that the staff is committed to placing animals with good homes. June's medical treatment at Peggy Adams was fabulous, and it was clear this kitten who had spent her first 6 months at the shelter had been loved and petted and cuddled as she is a playful social member of our family! Thank you, Peggy Adams staff. You are doing such important work and doing it with heart and passion!
I am a on limited income, I found a piece of my heart At Peggy Adams Rescue. A name your own price adoption makes it easy to find your new love. They have many options available. My heart was Adopted Thursday 12/7/2017 I am not from the Palm Beach area, I live about 4 hours north in Putnam county. Ozzy was well worth the trip and he has settled in quickly and loves running laps in the yard. He has plenty of tail wags and kisses to show me how happy he is.
Almost 4 years ago I adopted Chrissy, she was nine years old at the time. She is my best buddy. Still loves to play and car rides. She is such a happy little girl. Thank you Peggy Adams for saving this senior sweetie. Peggy Adams' facility is spotless, I also donate to Peggy's Pantry which provides food for pet owners who due to their economic situation may be able to afford pet food for their pets, this helps them from having to surrender their beloved pets. All staff I have dealt with is very compassionate in their goal to find these loving animals homes. Thank you for all you do.
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.
To Kristin, Colleen and Gabriel in Receiving. The three of you made a very difficult situation bearable. Your kindness, understanding and compassion was so appreciated. I was at a loss and you went above and beyond. When my brother passed away leaving four very loved kitties you said you would help, and you did. As hard as it was to leave Runt, Mr. Mitts, Guenivere and Turtle you were so kind and helped me to realize I was leaving them in good and caring hands. I can't say enough about these good people. Thank you, you are amazing.
I was referred to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue when my pet died a couple of weeks ago.
The entire staff was so accommodating and sincere. I was truly moved when I received a condolence card in the mail, nice touch.
so when it came to adopting a new pet, it was without any doubt as to where I was going, Peggy Adams.
The entire staff could not have been more accommodating, friendly and caring that I made the right choice, and I did.
Thank you all for assisting me in making my home complete again.
All the best.
We had lost our baby girl 21/2 years ago. Though I would never get another, and if we did it would be a rescue. Went to Peggy adams and found who they named fawn and we call Mimi. She was so scared, vicious, and needed hygiene. But the shelter was amazing, they took time with her, made her feel at ease. She's a beautiful girl and all she needed was love. This is her know just after 4 days. I love this shelter for their love and dedication to all animals. If your looking for a pet please visit Peggy first.
Peggy Adams is absolutely the most compassionate non-profit limited admission shelter I have ever visited. It accepts from Palm Beach Animal Care and Control not only readily adoptable dogs but also sick, injured, senior and hard to place cases. In addition, Peggy Adams housed Humane Society International's Puerto Rican dogs throughout their quarantine period. Thank you, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League!
She saved my life.
At the beginning of December my kitty "Fanci" and I lost our beloved son and brother. Papito, my 14 year old shepherd mix. We both went into depression and she and I would cry every day. 2 weeks after our loss, I went to the Peggy Adams Rescue League. I met Sky and she found us the most wonderful pup, Rosie "Elsa". I was not looking for a young pup but could not risk the health, happiness, and safety of my kitty. She was our blessing.
I am happy to say that we are truly blessed and will come back to visit whenever possible.
I adopted four month old Teddy my orange tabby. He made friends with my four dogs the night he came home. He is a pretty incredible kitten. I have always known Peggy Adams is special since I took my kids there to have their pet rat , iguana, and parakeet blessed , I think it was on all Saints Day 25 years ago. I knew when I was ready to adopt a cat again, I would come here. He is just so special. Georgina
A huge thank you to Jan at Peggy Adams! We had been trying to adopt a miniature schnauzer mix for some time and she helped us find the sweetest puppy! We do not live near the shelter so Jan and the staff went the extra mile to accommodate our needs in picking up our puppy. We were so pleased how well our dog was cared for while in the care of Peggy Adams, and they were incredibly helpful in getting us the information needed of how to care for her (we're first time dog owners). This is a fantastic place to adopt a pet!
My husband and I were in on Saturday and adopted a beautiful little blonde named Jada. As soon as we saw her sweet face, we fell in love. She is obviously still adjusting to our schedule, but she is making herself right at home. We are going to work on bringing her out of her shell and her separation anxiety issues. We are confident that through love and patience that she will eventually see that our home is her home forever. Here are a few snapshots of her in her new home.
Thank you so much for allowing us to become her puppy parents. She is a welcomed addition to our little family. Your staff was so wonderful in helping us to understand our little girl's past and needs for the future. I am so thankful that you have full time behaviorists in the event that we need additional help in acclimating Jada's fur-brother to the pack life.
I was mourning the loss of my Cavalier recently and fell into a depression.. ..One day while getting supplies for the pool my daughter said "We're going to the shelter" The shelter did not have any dogs we were interested in so she took me to Peggy Adams.......As we were leaving we passed a volunteer walking 3 beautiful Chihuahuas and I asked them if they had been adopted....Only 2 were leaving the one we liked best....we asked for her name and without saying anything we literally bolted for the front door and asked for forms to fill out......We met with Emily who brought in the Chihuahua who was shy and fearful.. Gabby is 1,5 years old and had a medical issue they were taking care of....So we took her home 2 days later.....Not only the care they give these animals but the connections they have build with Home Again a chip company unlike any I have dealt with before...Then the Pet insurance. They have physicians on site.....they offer free spaying and neutering of any animal that is owned in Palm Beach County. They have built a system that is 100% dedicated to the preservation of animals and keeping them healthy. My father was a dog breeder and I never thought about adopting. I am so glad I did. Gabby bonded with us immediately and after walking her twice knew exactly what her house was. She knows her name and is meeting other dogs as we walk.
Not only was Gabby lucky to find us, we feel so lucky to have found her and grateful to Peggy Adams for what that facility does for animals and for making this possible. Its staff is absolutely wonderful. Many thanks to Emily!!

I have been looking at the Peggy Adams site for many weeks to find a cat for my sister that lives on the west coast of FL. A few days before Christmas I saw kitten that reminded me of a Himalayan I had many years ago. He has one over the hearts of many in a new household, even a grandmother that was never a "cat person". His personality is very loving and as you can see he is adorable. The process at Peggy Adams when adopting him was fast and painless. I will definitely go back if I am every looking for another pet!
I started as a foster at Peggy Adams; 6 kittens! They provide a playpen, food and litter...all you provide is love and care! We ended up adopting one of those kittens. Jay helped us with the adoption and everything went smoothly. Then we went back for a playmate for her when our older cat passed. Jay again to the rescue!!! The entire team at Peggy Adams. If you aren't looking for a full commitment, but want to have animals in your life; contact Shannon about fostering. If you want to have a friend for life...jay is the man! Thanks to everyone I didn't mention in here...because from the volunteer greeters to the veterinarians this shelter is top notch.
