Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is Saving Hundreds of Lives Thanks to Neonatal Kitten Nursery
Hundreds of Cats & Kittens Looking for Forever Homes
Special Adoption Fees Offered
West Palm Beach, FL- (August 24, 2018) Looking to add a cuddly cat or kitten to the family? There is an urgency to place kittens and cats in forever homes, as Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League has over 700 cats and kittens currently in their care including kittens saved as newborns thanks to the League’s Neonatal Kitten Nursery.
Peggy Adams opened their Neonatal Kitten Nursery in 2016 in a revolutionary approach to saving lives of more newborn kittens requiring 24-hour care to survive. In 2017, the League expanded the Kitten Nursery to accommodate even more kittens in Palm Beach County needing life-saving care. In 2018, the Kitten Nursery is thriving and as we are in the middle of another busy kitten season – the need for foster volunteers is urgent, as well as finding these animals their forever homes.
A recent kitten nursery graduate, named Scooby, was brought to Peggy Adams as a stray single kitten when he was just two days old. He was hand raised in the kitten nursery for the first six weeks of his life or he would not have survived. Because of the community’s support, Scooby was recently adopted into a loving home. Peggy Adam’s goal is for more cats and kittens like Scooby to find their forever families.
Special adoption fees are currently available for kittens and cats at Peggy Adams. Kittens under five-months of age are $75, and you can name your own adoption fee for cats over five-months of age.
Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s adoption center is open daily from 11am-6pm and is located at 3100/3200 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach. Adoptable animals can also be viewed online at PeggyAdams.org/adopt. There are many cat adoption benefits including: spay/neuter surgery, all age-appropriate vaccinations, 30 days of PetFirst pet insurance, registered HomeAgain microchip, a starter bag of Science Diet brand pet food, and $25 off Initial Flea & Tick Services from Nozzle Nolen Pet-Friendly Pest Control. To learn more visit PeggyAdams.org.
Peggy Adams is also in need of foster volunteers. A Foster Parent provides a temporary home for an animal(s) until they are ready for adoption or for a period of time. Foster parents provide a safe place for animals to thrive and grow. Peggy Adams provides all the supplies and community service hours are available for fostering. For more information, please visit PeggyAdams.org/Foster or call 561-686-3663.
