February 18, 2019 - 38 Dogs Arrived

 

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.

Washing Away the Past

 

Upon arrival, the 38 dogs smelled of urine and feces. They were extremely uncomfortable, matted and covered in fleas.  One of the first steps was to treat the fleas and provide extensive grooming.  Our partners at Scenthound came to the rescue and over the next few days bathed and groomed all the dogs.

Eye Examinations and Other Medical Care

 

Our veterinarians found that 8 of the dogs would need eye exams. Thanks to The Animal Eye Guys, these dogs quickly got the care they desperately needed. All 38 dogs are still being treated for various conditions. We will continuously be updating this page, so please stay tuned! 

Stay Tuned! More Updates Coming Soon! 


 

Make a Lifesaving Donation

On average, it costs $500 to provide care and find a new home for an animal. These dogs will cost Peggy Adams much more due to their health conditions. If those in the community would like to support the care and healing of these dogs, please make a donation. Every dollar counts in saving lives and finding homes for deserving animals in our care!
