Free Adoption Weekend- May 19 to May 21
West Palm Beach, FL- (May 16, 2017) May is Global Pet Adoptathon Month and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is waiving all adoption fees from Friday, May 19, to Sunday, May 21, 2017, so you can adopt your new best friend for free! With hundreds of adorable dogs, cats, kittens and puppies looking for their forever loving home- now is the perfect time to adopt.
North Shore Animal League of America invited shelters all around the country to join the Global Pet Adoptathon Month and encouraged shelters to offer Free Adoptions for at least one day in May; Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League has decided to offer free adoptions for the entire three days (May 19 – 21.)
This special weekend-long adoption promotion is to encourage adoptions and help make sure these wonderful animals find a forever loving family. Last year, close to 5,800 (5,781 to be exact) animals were adopted from the League and, with the communities’ support, the League plans on saving thousands more this year.
All adoptable pets are available for viewing online at PeggyAdams.org and the website is updated every hour. Each adoptable animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ready for their forever home. All Adopters need to meet all League adoption requirements. Standard adoption guidelines apply. Palm Beach County rabies tag not included. The League has extended their hours during the free adoption weekend: Friday, May 19 from 11 am to 8 pm; Saturday, May 20 from 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday, May 21 from 11 am to 6 pm.
