West Palm Beach, FL- (July 2, 2018) Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League needs donations to help stock the shelves of Peggy’s Pantry with life essential supplies such as wet and dry food for both cats and dogs. Peggy’s Pantry is a program to help temporarily assist families with feeding their pets. When families find themselves in a financial shortfall and don’t have the means to care for their animals, rather than have them surrender their beloved family pets, Peggy Adams assists them by providing animal food and supplies for six-month increments.
“Peggy's Pantry is here to assist local Palm Beach County families who are financially struggling to care for their pets,” explains Rich Anderson, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Executive Director/CEO. “Peggy’s Pantry offers supplies, and referrals for low cost vet care and spay/neuter surgeries for their pets. The primary goal of Peggy’s Pantry is to keep pets with the people who love them and out of shelters,” Anderson continues. “We are always grateful for the outpouring of support Peggy’s Pantry receives from this community. But in the summer months, when school is out, and families need to focus more resources on their children, the Pantry’s needs grow exponentially,” concludes Anderson.
By visiting PeggyAdams.org, the community can see what the League needs and how they use each item. Peggy’s Pantry donations may be delivered within the double dome building at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League located at 3200 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach, Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and on Sunday's 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
