Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Sees Number of Animals Under Care Double in Summer

West Palm Beach, FL- Summer can be a hard time for animals in Palm Beach County, as Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League sees more cats and dogs come in suffering from heat, dehydration, malnutrition and neglect.  The summer months are the busiest months at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and the number of animals in our care doubles on a daily basis during these months.

This is why the community’s support right now is critically important.  All donations and/or gifts will help the League provide food, shelter, and medical care to homeless animals in our community right now when the help is needed most.   We need individuals, families, neighborhoods and businesses to work together on the animals’ behalf.   

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is encouraging the community to create grassroots Summer Fund Drives on the animals behalf.  One easy way the community can help the animals at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is to help stock the shelves of Peggy's Pantry with life essential supplies such as wet and dry  food, bedding and kitty litter. The League needs these supplies daily to provide the loving care for the animals with us  before they are adopted into a forever home.

Rich Anderson, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Executive Director & CEO explains, “Peggy's Pantry is not only for the animals under our care but is also here to assist local Palm Beach County families who are financially struggling to care for their pets.”   Peggy’s Pantry offers supplies, and  referrals for low cost vet care and spay/neuter surgeries for their pets.  “One of our primary goal’s with Peggy’s Pantry is to keep pets at home and out of shelters,” concludes Anderson.

Donations may be delivered within the double dome building at the League located at 3100/3200 North Military Trail, West Palm Beach Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and on Sunday's 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Students can also collect food for community service hours.  To learn more visit or call 561. 686.3663.
