Peggy Adams is a wonderful part of the community. I have fostered 4-5 dogs from Peggy Adams - 2 became permant members of our house. Neither would have made it out of another shelter since they needed heartworm treatment. They also have a wonderful program for feral cats - offering to fix them and provide shots for $35. There is a low cost spay and neuter program for pets as well.

I had lost my Sharpei who I had in my life for 15 years/ I went to the website and saw a Bulldog for adoption/ The next day I went to Peggy Adams and became the dad to Dozer. Just a couple of months later I found that the people who surrended Dozer had deceived the staff by not telling them of a condition he had. Unfortunately Dozer had to be put down breaking my heart but the Staff allowed me to be with him so the last thing he heard was my voice telling him I loved him.. Heartbroken I did not think I would ever allow another dog in my life but the Adoption Staff especially Lori knew better and she called me to tell me of a loving female english bulldog named Adrianne.I went up to Peggy Adams thinking I would look at her and go home. I waited outside for Lori to bring Adrianne out. The next thing I knew I had a lap full of Love kissing my face all over. Long Story short Adrianne and I will mark two love filled years this coming February. People a Shelter Dog is the best dog because they really appreciate their forever home and will give you more love than you could ever give them back

Wonderful place! We adopted our beautiful cat Simba, several years ago and she is the light of our lives. We were given very helpful advice and the people there were friendly and very excited to see Simba go to a good home. Without Peggy Adams, we would not have this amazing girl in our lives, so I thank you for allowing us to adopt her.

This is a highly caring and professional organization. They made adopting my new best friend easy. If you are thinking about adopting a dog or a cat, then you should pay them a visit. Their adoption staff listened to my needs and helped me find the perfect dog. Bravo!
