PALM BEACH, FL- Nearly 150 supporters of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League gathered on March 20 at Club Colette in Palm Beach for the fourth annual "Off The Leash" event.  This sold-out event was a chic soiree where guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing, as well as meeting a few adorable animals looking for their forever homes.
