Happy Tails Adoption Stories



I got her from Peggy Adams about three months ago. She is a great dog and great for my lifestyle. Penelope is such a good dog and is loving life here in Ohio. I got her over the summer so she can come to school with me in Ohio. She is loving the Ohio weather better than the Florida weather. She has many friends up here and loves to be outside. I was not originally going to come to Peggy Adams to look at dogs, but I had a free hour in my day to look at another rescue before my appointment at another rescue. I saw the picture of her on the cage and instantly fell in love with her. She was at a pet store being shown off and I drove there to go adopt her.

Benni is wonderful. He has been a sweet lamb since day one. He was definitely a special needs boy with fear issues but loves love and is happy. Here is a picture of Benni riding out Hurricane Irma where we evacuated to my sister's in Tampa. Benni, his brother Homer, and I are back home in Jupiter safe and sound. Benni sends love to his foster parents Scott and Bonnie!

My husband and I had been talking about adopting a kitten for a few weeks. One Saturday morning, we woke up, decided to give it it a try, and drove over to Peggy Adams. We played with a few kittens and cats for a bit, then we made our way to a stall with 4 sleeping kittens and a little one playing by herself. As soon as we walked in, she looked up at us and climbed right into our arms. We cuddled and played with her for a few minutes before deciding not to look anymore. We took her home, and she purred for days! She adjusted to her new environment seamlessly, and we absolutely love having her as a part of our family. Thanks Peggy Adams!

Pumpkin has settled in very nicely and gets along great with our other cat Tigger that we also adopted from you almost two years ago. She's very high energy and loves visitors. So far she is a happy little girl!

Sally came to me immediately at your adoption center, and I knew I had to take her home. I didn't mind that she was 12 years old being a senior myself. She is very sweet and loves exploring the house and sitting outside on the screened in patio.

My daughter Shannon had a wish to have an adopted cat. So I went by myself and adopted Henry. I came home, and I surprised her with Henry. She was so happy and excited. Henry loved my daughter and also our Chihuahua Princess. They get along very well. Henry and Princess play together, sleep together, and they make my daughter happy. Now my family is complete with Henry. We love him so much, that we can't imagine our lives without him. Thank you for Henry. He was meant to be part of our family!!

I adopted Lucas to be my emotional support animal, but actually support each other. Seeing his big smile everyday on his walks literally brings overwhelming joy to my heart. I look forward to the hopefully many and plentiful years ahead.

Harley and Colby

"Harley and Colby"

Three months ago my boyfriend and I came into Peggy Adams looking for two fur-babies to make our new home here in Florida feel a little homier. We saw many kittens and played with a lot, but there were two that felt like they picked us. From the moment my boyfriend stepped into the kitten room, one little girl would not leave his side. She jumped right up onto him and went to sleep. Immediately, I saw him fall in love. As I walked from kitten room to room there was one little black kitten that just watched me. She sat and watched me walk around and never once looked away. Finally I stopped and walked into her room. She watched me sit down and then just came right to me and sat down by my feet and looked at me like she was asking me when we were going home. We felt like they both picked us, and now we can see if was for a reason. The two have been the best cuddle bugs and playmates. Colby (black kitten) has been our talker. She answers us and talks back but loves to sit and watch us around the house or watch her sister, Harley, run around like crazy. Harley since day one has not left my side. She is the biggest cuddle bug I have ever had. There's never a time she is not wanting attention, and I love every minute of it. Our babies seem to very happy with us and we are so in love with them!!!! Thank you Peggy Adams for completing our little family.
