Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's

Grace Society Holds Reception


Palm Beach, FL- (March 27, 2017) Nearly 100 members of the Grace Society of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League enjoyed a splendid evening on March 22 at the home of James Berwind and Kevin Clark.  The reception honored Society members’ exceptional support for the League’s life-saving work.


Board Chairman Lesly Smith welcomed guests and noted that “…we are fortunate to be able to help those less fortunate and that is what Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s Grace Society members are all about.”  Executive Director/CEO Rich Anderson thanked Messrs. Berwind and Clark for “opening your home and your hearts to the League.  The Animal Rescue League has had its roots in Palm Beach since its  founding 1925 and because of supporters like you, the League was able to serve as temporary shelter for over 8,000 animals last year alone.”


Guests enjoyed not only the perfect weather and beautiful locale.  They also met the four adoptable dogs of various shapes and sizes who beautifully represented the ongoing mission of the League. Prince, Jersey, Lexi and Ricky.


Few have meant more to the animals of our community than Robert and Jane Grace and the Grace Family.  The Grace Society has been established to honor this incredibly generous and compassionate family and to appropriately recognize those supporters who are making it possible for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League to fulfill its mission.
