Sushi (formerly Trina)

"Sushi (formerly Trina)"

We adopted Trina (now named Sushi) mostly because our first adopted dog, Linguini, needed a friend! We instantly fell in love with her as soon as we met her, and it has been a perfect match for our family. Now Sushi plays all day with her big brother, runs in the backyard and wants snuggles all the time! Each night she sneaks up to our bedroom and gets into her dog bed because she is tired from the day! We couldn't have found a more loving dog.

This girl has won our hearts. Bootsy has taken over the household, and her adopted brother Blake. She is a bigger cat but runs and plays with her toys like a lightweight! She has even lost a little weight. Bootsy is a big talker, getting our attention all the time. We are so happy to have her with us!

I remember the day I saw Winston's profile and picture on Peggy Adams' website. He looked so sad yet still so full of love and life. I noticed a few bald spots on his head and body just by looking at his picture but just knew that he was the one and wanted to meet him just to make sure he felt the same way. When we met Winston it was apparent that he had a skin condition, demodex to be specific. The amazing team at Peggy Adams had rescued him and were nursing him back to health. He was such a crazy puppy but completely full of love. He was only 5 months old and had been isolated during his treatments so when we brought him home he had no idea how to play with toys or other dogs which saddened me at that moment. I'm happy say that after a few weeks of medicated baths and change in diet with added vitamins and immunity boosters, all of Winston's hair grew back and he was already looking so much healthier and happier. We have had Winston for a few months now and we couldn't imagine our lives without him. He is such a good puppy, extremely loving and sweet, and he is just so funny and he is extremely smart. He just keeps getting healthier and smarter everyday. He now has five best doggy friends that he sees and plays hard with weekly and he can't live without. His hobbies include going to the dog beach and dog park and making all the other dogs run and chase him, playing catch and making you run around to catch him. He loves riding around in the truck with us and running around in the woods when we go hunting. He loves kisses and cuddling and being the center of attention. Everyone who meets him, loves him immediately. He loves everyone and every animal he sees and does not have a single aggressive bone in his body. He makes everyone's life a little bit better everyday. We are so thankful for Peggy Adams, and we are so lucky to have rescued him.

My Siamese snowshoe recently passed away after 14 years with us, and I wanted another kitty to raise. Although I loved her to bits, I was slightly allergic to her fur. I have another cat with long hair which seems to be ok with me. So I decided to look for another with medium to long hair. I saw on one of the foster sites on Facebook that there was one at a Pet Supermarket. So I rushed over there and found my love, Ginger, an orange tabby with the most gorgeous fluffy tail. Needless to say, I adopted her right away. She was sponsored by Peggy Adams so I brought her in there for a checkup and shots. She is doing great! She has adjusted well with my two other older cats, or I should say they have adjusted to her. I thank all the foster parents who take such good care of all the kittens. Ginger is sociable, sweet, charming and playful.

I adopted Izzie in late August. I have had her for 4 months now and I couldn't be happier. She is the best dog I've ever owned. My friends love her, my family loves her, and most importantly, I love her. She is so sweet and so playful. She has a million cute little mannerisms. I bring her everywhere with me and she loves the beach. I'm not sure what her family situation was before me but when I adopted her she was very very thin and she's definitely put on much needed weight and looks beautiful! She has a very happy life with me. She enjoys sleeping under the covers, napping on the couch, and playing with her toys. She's the best, and I wouldn't trade her for the world.

Teddy has adjusted wonderfully in our home. Now that he has the "go ahead" to run wild after his heartworm treatment, you really see him as the playful pooch he is! Teddy especially loves running around with his beagle sister Lucie, & Shorkie sister Brandi. I'm thankful to have found this adorable little guy.

We adopted at Peggy Adams before and were considering a playmate for Brandy, our now 2 year old lab/shepard mix. Well after searching we came across Hazel! Although she was a handful at first since she is just a puppy, we could not be happier! She's adjusted very well and now has a forever home!

"Yoda "

Wednesday Morning I went for breakfast with a friend of mine. As we proceeded to leave I asked her about Peggy Adams. I've heard of the shelter, but never been. She recently adopted a beautiful little dog about a few months ago from there. Nothing but good things. As I walked in, I was extremely happy with how gorgeous the shelter is. The staff is very sweet! As I was looking around, I noticed a cute mixed small dog. When I finished looking, I decided to fill out the paperwork and meet him, but then realized, that another family was looking at him. My friend looked on the Peggy Adams website and showed me little "Herbie", a 3 pound chihuahua that was about 6yrs. I knew right there, I had to see him! The staff member took me to his kennel. I noticed a huge bed for a little dog, haha! He looked so scared. I was let in the cage and sat on the ground to his level. I held my hand out for him to smell me. Within seconds he jumped into my arms and started licking my face. I knew I had to take him home. I believe that pets choose us. My experience with Peggy Adams was AMAZING!! They take care of all those pets. So much love there. Just walking in, you could feel it. I'm so grateful to have my little man. He has stolen my heart. I encourage everyone to rescue. There's so many that need loving homes! Thanks again for my little Yoda!
