West Palm Beach, FL- (March 5, 2020)- Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League will be receiving 14 dogs from the Bahamas on Friday, March 6th at 1:00 p.m. when the animals arrive at Jet Aviation (1515 Perimeter Road) in West Palm Beach. Wings of Rescue and GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Rebuild joined forces to fly up to 65 animals from Freeport, Bahamas to empty out the Humane Society of Grand Bahama (HSGB). This will allow staff and volunteers for Rescue Rebuild to continue their work to rebuild the shelter after it was severely damaged by last fall’s devastating Hurricane Dorian.
Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach and H.A.L.O. Rescue in Sebastian, Florida are generously accepting the shelter pets from HSGB that were headed for Nashville before the severe storms and tornado hit the area on March 3rd.
With the help of a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, the Rescue Rebuild team will continue their work to rebuild the shelter in the Bahamas. Having a safe HSGB shelter will help to increase adoptions and eliminate the need for Wings of Rescue to continually come back to fly pets from Freeport. In return, allowing them to fly even more shelter pets from other locations around North America to loving homes.
“Our prayers are with the community of Nashville and we are happy to help these animals find shelter and a forever home,” said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “Additionally, we are also happy to assist in this rescue so the Humane Society of the Grand Bahamas can undergo their much-needed renovations.”
Peggy Adams has been active helping other shelters in the Bahamas as a part of their Emergency Placement Partner program. On September 16, 2019, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, in conjunction with IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare), GreaterGood.org and Wings of Rescue, coordinated two rescue flights for the transport of 158 dogs and cats from the Bahamas Humane Society so that they could save more animals left homeless by Hurricane Dorian.
When these dogs are available for adoption, they will be appear on Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s website: www.PeggyAdams.org/Adopt If someone would like support the lifesaving work at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, please visit www.PeggyAdams.org/donate Another great way to help is to become a Foster Volunteer!
