On Monday, February 18, 2019, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League received an urgent call from Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control (AC&C). A man was discovered dead in his house and 38 dogs were in desperate need of help. AC&C did not have space at their shelter for these dogs. They also didn’t have the resources to give these dogs the medical attention they required.
For cases like this, AC&C knows to call Peggy Adams for help.
When the dogs arrived that night, our staff got to work. The dogs were all smaller breeds, including Poodles and Pomeranians. There was a mom with a litter of puppies just days old. Some of the dogs were just a few years old. Others as old as 14.
Our doctors rushed four of the dogs into critical care. Many of the 38 dogs had severe dental problems and skin issues. Not one of the dogs had been spayed or neutered. It was clear that these dogs would need several weeks of care before they would be healthy and ready for adoption.
