Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Announces Temporary Changes to Services for March

Update as of 3/18/20: Adoptions are by apointment. Please email the adoptions team at or call 561.686.6656.


West Palm Beach, FL- (March 13, 2020) With the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on the rise here in Florida and across the country, it is important for residents in our region to be vigilant and adhere to the CDC recommended guidelines. Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach has some important updates to share with the community about their programs and services.

As a precaution to the COVID-19 virus, to reduce exposure to and protect our community from the virus, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is being proactive and limiting non-essential services to the public. Peggy Adams will be suspending their public Wellness Clinic but will continue to provide end-of-life services. They will also be suspending all public Spay/Neuter surgeries for owned animals but will continue to provide TNVR services as normal. All other shelter operations will continue as normal, including adoptions.

To prevent overcrowding at the shelter, Peggy Adams is also urging people to, if at all possible, refrain from surrendering owned pets to the shelter until at least the end of the month, except for if an animal is in distress or its safety is at risk. Peggy Adams is also asking people in the community who find a stray dog or cat to consider holding onto the animal at least until the end of the month.  

Starting this weekend, Peggy Adams is waiving adoption fees for any animal over one-year old for the entire month of March.

The fee-waived adoption promotion is only valid at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League shelter location at 3200 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach. The Peggy Adams Adoption Center is open daily from 11am-6pm. *A rabies tag fee applies to Palm Beach County residents.

All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  To learn more, please visit Not ready to adopt but would consider fostering? To learn more about fostering, please visit
