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.

We were foster parents for a cat and her four kittens. It was a wonderful experience. The training and support we received from the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League was first rate. They provided excellent followup and guidance to make sure the animals were doing well and in hands.

I have been volunteering at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League for close to 15 years, if not longer. I have watched this organization grow to become one of the most respected and popular shelters around. When volunteering I have had people stop me in the adoption areas stating that they have never been to such a clean shelter. They also comment to me how healthy our animals look. I can say with certainty that everyone that now works at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League are there because of their love for the animals. Our dogs get quality time from the staff and volunteers when taken out for their daily walks and play time. We also have play groups for the dogs. We have free roaming cats, large glass runs for our cats and large condos. This is truly a wonderful and caring organization.

Having been involved with Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League for nearly 20 years, I am in the fortunate position of having watched this organization bloom into a major force for animal welfare both locally and nationwide. In that time I have received and seen others receive an unbelievable level of support and services.  My roles have been as a trapper of community cats, an adopter and a foster volunteer.  The staff are genuine, the leadership has its priorities in order and they are excellent stewards of the time, talent and funds donated to them.  It is an absolute privilege to to have this resource in the community.

I have been fostering for Peggy Adams for a few years now, and have always had a wonderful experience with them. All the employees are very kind and helpful, and they really care about the animals. I recently adopted a 5 year old cat and was thrilled with the fact that they were able to tell me about the cat's personality and behavior,so I would feel comfortable with the adoption. She is a great cat and a welcome addition to my home. I would recommend Peggy Adams to anyone looking to adopt a furry friend!

After walking dogs @ Peggy o days- you get to know each dogs personality. That said, it became apparent that Bugsy was waiting for us to find him. He was so well socialized through daily doggy playdates @ Peggy that his persoanlity is true blue! Clearly, he was our dog! Even though we never intended to adopt, this little guy immediately expanded our daily happiness from the first hour!
One week in and alot of one on one trust building- we have visited the beach, 2 dog parks, and many long walks- followed many naps!! Long story Long - WOW! We can't recommend Peggy Adams enough for what ever positive furry contact you are looking for!!!! See you at the Dog Park!! Jeff and Lisa

I have fostered kittens for the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and I recently adopted my puppy from them as well! They do a great job helping animals in our community. I think the spay/neuter program where they catch feral cats, fix them, and then return them is great; it's doing a lot of good to help reduce the number of stray cats. The medical treatment for animals is very fairly priced there, and the staff has been very helpful to me.

I have been volunteering at Peggy Adams go about 18 months. This is a wonderful well run nonProfit that does so much for the animals in the community. From adoptions , spay neuter clinics , catch neuter and release for ferals, and community education , dog training etc , there is no facet of animal care they don't address. They have a long history of community support.

They are the best place to find your new family member. They have helped me in the process of my salley finding her way into God's gates to heaven and they have helped us find two new family members that have fit into our home with our three dogs. The two new kittens have bonded with our three little ones and they think of themselves as two little dogs.PeggyAdams knows animals very well, they knew exactly which kittens would bond with our three little dogs. I would only use them again to find the right little one for our home. Kite Allih@yahoo.com

Recently lost our beloved dog Archie to cancer. It was unexpected & devastating. Our dog Day-Z was also sad wondering what happened to her friend. Went to Peggy Adams rescue league not for a replacement but for an affectionate loyal companion. We found Rufus, a young terrier mix. He's turned out to be a wonderful lovable dog with a personality that will win your heart. He's helped fill that void in our hearts &I thank Peggy Adams rescue league for their help & dedication in finding us a true match for our family. He has finally found a forever home & we have. lots of socks too!!!

Such a clean shelter and so full of welcome. I loved my first cat so much that I began volunteering at Peggy, to give back to the place that gave me so much happiness.

About a year ago I began volunteering in the Quiet Room at Peggy Adams, working to help cats better adjust to life at a shelter. Since then, I have adopted two more and I could not be happier. This shelter is a blessing in disguise and has given so much life back to the animals.

I highly recommend adopting from here!

Best Regards,
Heather

I've been a foster parent for Peggy Adams for many years now, and an animal lover my entire life. Every case I have taken in I have fallen in love with, I have been very fortunate to know that they've all gone to very special forever homes. This past March I was blessed to foster a beautiful five month old American Bulldog that I named Luna. After three weeks with us my husband and I decided we just could not live without her and adopted her in April. She has been a delight and a wonderful addition to our beautiful family.

Thank you to everyone at Peggy Adam Org. Your work and loving hearts do not go unnoticed.

Thank you,
Gisela and Bill Shore

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

A friend wanted to adopt a kitty named Bella. Today was the day Bella could go to her forever home. We were greeted by very friendly and caring people. In addition, the entire process of adopting the kitty was very easy and informative. The entire team at Peggy Adams were just terrific!! I would recommend anyone interested in adopting a kitty or dog to go to Peggy Adams. The entire team is just terrific!

Thank You!!
