Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League partnered with Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control on removing 24 dogs from deplorable conditions

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League just received 24 small dogs of various ages and breeds from Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control due to a hoarding situation. Mostly Chihuahuas and other small breed dogs, they were living in deplorable conditions. This is an ongoing investigation and the dogs were voluntarily surrendered.

 Upon initial exams by League veterinarians, several of the dogs needed to have medical grooming and have underlying skin and flea issues. A few of the dogs are in foster care due to being pregnant.

 “It is very important to Peggy Adams to assist our local Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control in situations such as this as an emergency placement partner,” explains Lawrence Nicolas, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s Chief Operating Officer. “Both organizations work closely together to ensure the well-being of Palm Beach County dogs and cats. In fact, Peggy Adams transferred 2,019 dogs and cats from PBC AC&C in 2019 – a record number for the League.”

When these dogs are available for adoption, they will be appear on Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s website: If someone would like support the lifesaving work at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, please visit Another great way to help is to become a Foster Volunteer!
