Sharon Anderer Joins Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League as Director of Finance

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is pleased to announce that Sharon Anderer has joined the League as Director of Finance.

Born and raised in New York, Sharon graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a B.S. in Accounting.  Her career of over 30 years began in public accounting during which time she earned her license as a Certified Public Accountant in the State of New York.

Sharon has been a resident of South Florida since 1992 and after public accounting, her career path took her to financial reporting and eventually management for several large public and private corporations in a variety of industries.  For ten years she worked as Controller at Donna Klein Jewish Academy and, most recently in 2016, she joined the Caridad Center, the largest free clinic in Florida, as their Finance Director.

Sharon’s first experience with Peggy Adams was in October 2018, when she needed the League’s services for her 15-year-old Schnauzer, Cookie.  She was impressed with the compassionate staff.  Several months later, the Director of Finance position opened at Peggy Adams, and after researching the organization and meeting with the leadership team, Sharon knew this is where she wanted to be.

“Most don’t realize that providing for the animals left in our care goes way beyond shelter,” said Sharon Anderer.  “I’m so grateful to be a part of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, where there is a culture of compassion and teamwork in the carrying out our mission.”

Sharon currently resides in South Palm Beach with her husband of 24 years and two sons, along with their beloved dog Suzie Q.
