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 Animal Rescue League is fantastic! The staff truly cares about the animals. I recommend the League to anyone who is looking to adopt a furry friend.

There's something magical about the animals that come out of Peggy Adams. My wife and I adopted 2 kittens about a year and a half ago from Peggy Adams and they are unlike any other cats I've ever owned or known in the past! For starters, they are cuddle bugs! The foster team at Peggy Adams must have given my two kittens an abundance of love because Minnie and Nala have grown up to be extremely sociable, loving, and cuddly creatures!

Thank you, Peggy Adams for providing an amazing service in our community!

I had such a wonderful experience with this organization. I adopted my two cats here and they couldn't have been more helpful!

LOVE Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. We've adopted from there and their team is so amazing. They make sure you are ready and prepared as well as follow-up several times as soon as your new family member is settled in! GREAT ORGANIZATION!

My son wanted a dog for his 16th Birthday. We went on-line and found two dogs we thought would be perfect for us. I called the next day and arranged for our family to meet the dogs. When we arrived, we were greeted, welcomed and taken back to see the dogs. One little puppy who wasn't even in the system yet (he had just arrived that day) came to the door of his crate and said hello to us with his tail a'waggin! It was like he picked us - he wasn't one of the dogs we saw....but he wanted my son to be HIS BOY and my daughter to be HIS GIRL! We played with him in a private room and fell in love! We've had Chewbacca (Chewey for short) for almost nine months! He quickly stole our hearts and now rules our home. It's ridiculous how 4 people and 2 cats can be put in their place by a mutt, but it's true. I was so impressed with the team at Peggy Adams and even more impressed with their follow through after the adoption! Thanksgiving was a few days ago and as we went around the table, my heart was singing when my macho husband's eyes glowed as he said he was most thankful this year for Chewy and the absolute joy he has brought our family. THANK YOU SO MUCH PEGGY ADAMS TEAM!!!

Living in South Florida we know there are many options for our neglected animals. But the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League has been leading the way for a very long time and should be seen as a blueprint for other shelters to follow. The CEO Rich Anderson has a passion for what he does and it is evident with every associate, board member and volunteer involved with this amazing organization. They simply are the best!

This group deserves more than 5 stars!!

Thank you Peggy Adams for having the perfect dog for our home. We adopted Peony (now known as Penny) and she is such a perfect fit for us. Right from the start she jumped in the car, enjoyed the ride home, and greeted everyone with Love.... humans and dogs... We got a good as expected report on her being she was a stray and not much was known by Peggy Adams. Thank you for giving us our new addition.

I do feel Pearl’s original name Luna (from the shelter) plays a part in my life, as well. Luna is Spanish and the English translation is moon. With that said, Pearl has brought light to my darkness. She has truly touched my heart and soul. We definitely have an unconditional love for one another.

Pearl is the perfect name as she is a special and unique gem. The Bible history about pearls is that God has grains of sand enter the oyster, which irritate the oyster, and it changes over time into a pearl with great value. It's about God breaking things off of us and changing us from the inside out into people (and/or animal) of great Kingdom value. God used Pearl to help change me and break the sadness off my life and she has helped bring great value to my life. She is a true treasure as the pearl/gem that she is, I am truly thankful and grateful to have her as my companion. Thank you, Jesus! Amen.

We have adopted cats from Peggy Adams in the past for our family. Each has been a wonderful addition to our family and lived out their lives with us. We recently adopted a Manx kitty for a special friend who lost her husband and suffers from severe depression. The doctor thought an animal would help. WOW! Thank you Peggy Adams for this wonderful addition to my friend's life. She is doing so much better and she and Baby are the best of friends. I would never adopt any animal but a rescue. I have 7 kittys right now and every one is a rescue or adoption. Spay or Neuter. But DON'T ABUSE OR ABANDON! There IS a home for these wonderful babies.

I recently adopted a 9 yr old Boxer mix from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. She is such a well trained dog! I am amazed that this dog sat in Animal Care and Control for 2 months without being adopted, and then in Peggy Adams for 2 more months. She is a wonderful dog! I had her thoroughly checked by my vet, and he have my dog a clean bill of health. Please, consider adopting!
