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!

I have been involved with Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League since 2008. All the while we had pure bred dogs. We never adopted a dog from the League or any other shelter. That all changed this past fall. I am now the proud owner of a great rescue dog. He might be the smartest dog we have ever owned. But that is not the point of this "review." After going through that adoption process, I got to see how great the League and its staff are "in action." Thoroughly professional. Very helpful, thoughtful and kind. This dog was about a year and a half old and this poodle mix had never been groomed, never had shots, was not neutered and was not "chipped." Except for the grooming (he had to be shaved) the League took care of it all very quickly. Within about 3 to 4 days we took our dog home.

If you are in the West Palm Beach area, you need to visit Peggy Adams and see what is going on there.

Peggy Adams is an outstanding organization serving Palm Beach County. Not only are they committed to elevating our entire county to Zero Euthnasia of adoptable treatable dogs and cats, but also tackling a gigantic community cat overpopulation issue, providing low cost services to our community through numerous coveted grants from the most honorable organizations!
I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with their incredible staff, volunteers and board members. The organization is a dream team of dedicated people committed to saving countless furry lives in our community! Thank you ARL for all you do!

I adopted a kitten (Cora) through Peggy Adams in January 2016 and then adopted two more kittens (a sister and brother named Harley and Quinn) in September 2016. Harley and Quinn just love playing with each other and are truly a joy in my home. Cora has learned to also play with them and they run around the house chasing each other every morning. Peggy Adams is truly a fantastic organization to help strays are healthy and find homes. I am grateful to Peggy Adams for the three cats that have found me through their help!

I've always used Peggy Adams to have my pets spayed/neutered. Last year I became involved in the TNR program with the help of a trapper friend. We've been able to have almost every stray feral in the area neutered and released.. Earlier this year I fostered a litter of 5 kittens born to a feral mother. After they were 8 wks old, Peggy Adams was kind enough to accept them into their kitten adoption program. After surrending them, I decided I wanted to adopt two. Peggy's kept them for one more week for health checks, shots, neutering.. When I picked them up, they were in beautiful healthy condition.. I'm not a wealthy woman but I do donate to Peggy Adams when I can because I feel they're the most awesome no-kill Animal Rescue in Palm Beach County, maybe the State of Florida. Their always making improvements & have high standards.. Check out their new kitten adoption enclosure; it's fabulous...

When I moved to North Palm Beach, I wanted to find out more about this shelter. I went on a tour and was blown away. The facility is truly state of the art and very different from the shelters I knew in other parts of the country. The animals are cared for extremely well. The kennel is so clean that you could eat off the floor. I'm proud to support Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and will be including them in my will.
