WEST PALM BEACH, FL (July 28, 2023) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League will hold its third TNVR (Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return) Spay Day on Saturday, August 5, 2023. The goal is to TNVR over 500 community cats in South Florida. These surgeries include spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchip, and a tipped ear to signify a completed TNVR surgery.
A team of veterinarians will perform an average of 100 surgeries per hour. This community TNVR Spay Day will bring veterinary professionals across Florida to perform surgeries.
Working alongside Peggy Adams’ staff will be volunteers with duties throughout the event, including check-in, surgery prep, instrument sanitization, cat & trap organization, recovery, and more.
TNVR is a program in which free-roaming cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies and other feline viruses, ear-tipped, and then returned to their outdoor homes. TNVR has been shown to be the least costly, most effective, and humane way of stabilizing and decreasing community cat populations.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL- (June 29, 2023) July is National Lost Pet Prevention Month and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League wants to make sure your pets can get back home if they get scared and run away during the July 4th holiday. Noisy fireworks can terrify pets and trigger an instinctive fight-or-flight response. Faced with repeated thundering explosives, fleeing is a natural reaction. In fact, Animal Control officials across the country report a 30% increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and 6th.
With more pets going missing around the 4th of July than any other time of the year, it is essential to be prepared beforehand and help your pets stay safe and secure.
