Benji (formerly Peanut)

"Benji (formerly Peanut)"

Benji is wonderful and well housebroken. He has adopted my grandson as his favorite person. When my grandson is here, Benji comes alive and plays happily with him for the entire day. When my grandson is not here, Benji prefers to lay on the couch (we got him a set of steps because he is too short to hop onto the couch) with a throw pulled over his head. He sleeps in his bed beside me at night, but when my grandson is here he abandons me for my grandson's bed. We walk 3-4 times a day which seems to be plenty for him. He refuses to go out if it is raining, but contains himself until we can get out. Benji definitely has a forever home with us.

We rescued a large Labrador in December. We had a small chihuahua in our house at the time. Those two became like brother and sister when I brought him home. A few months later, we lost the chihuahua suddenly, and the lab was very sad. We decided to go rescue another dog when we came across Cookie. It's like the chihuahua came back as Cookie, these two are inseparable.

My fiancé and I came to look at cats because she felt after the death of a close family member that such would cheer up my spirits. And it did. Because of that visit, we now have a sweet kitten that adds to our fur family. (She had two cats prior.) Doc is a fantastic and energetic and loving kitten. He fits right in like he always belonged with us. Our adoption specialist was amazing as well.

Cici is such a loving girl - all she wants is to be next to someone. She is very calm but hates thunder. She has a brother and all they do is run around and play. They keep each company, and both love to sleep on top of me.

Bella is a an amazing, sweet, and gentle pup. We absolutely love her. She is so full of energy and loves to play. She has adapted very well to the family and to her brother Geo. Bella was potty trained when we took her home and that is a huge blessing. She loves the kids and aims to please. I am so glad we are her forever home.

BOKY, who is now named CALVIN, because our other dog - who could clearly be from the same litter, is named Hobbs, also a rescue. Calvin is such a delightful addition to our family - a perfect fit. Calvin is so affectionate - yes he's still got some puppy stuff going on - and he's the alpha between him and Hobbs, but what a sweet protector he is of all of us, my wife, myself, and Hobbs. He loves to cuddle - something that is a little new to me for a dog to just jump on the bed and plop down on my chest and roll over with this paws in the air like the arms of a child and then hold on to my wrist like his paws are hands! It is such an amazingly loving thing to show. Calvin has made our lives even sweeter, and our love that much deeper, for him, Hobbs and each other.- because he loves all of us so much. We are so blessed by him and thankful to all at Peggy Adams to make our adoption so seamless and perfect.

Fred & Ginger formerly Sonny & Cher

"Fred & Ginger formerly Sonny & Cher"

Fred and Ginger are quite the entertaining duo! They have made themselves extremely comfortable in their new home and have been a welcomed addition to our house. Our days are filled with laughter thanks to their silly antics and sibling wrestling.

Owen and Logan

"Owen and Logan"

Owen and Logan were bottle babies I fostered last season after the kitten nursery closed in November. Owen is blind, but his sister Logan is sighted. They are bonded, and I am so happy that I was able to keep them together. Owen is amazing we don't even look at his as blind. Logan is the sweetest girl ever.

My son and I can not thank enough everyone at Peggy Adams for helping us to adopt our beautiful, cuddly, beloved kitten, Sierra. Having never had a pet before, I could not have begun to imagine the joy and happiness that she has brought into our home. I am especially grateful to her foster parents who gave her a loving and healthy start in life. THANK YOU! Sierra is doing well. She enjoys being pampered, cuddling during weekend afternoon naps, and trips around the neighborhood in her stroller. She enjoys meeting new people, car rides, and visits across town to see other members of her new family. At home, she rarely leaves my side. Sierra has purred constantly and loudly since the day we brought her home with us. She seems happy and content. She is definitely loved. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU Peggy Adams!
