Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League & Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control Issue Urgent Call for Help to the Community
Although Palm Beach County has not been struck by a hurricane so far this season, we are in the midst of a different type of storm; an animal crisis that requires our community’s immediate attention and assistance, as lives are at stake. On Monday, September 10, 2018, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control issued an urgent call for help to the animal rescue community. The County’s shelter is at critical capacity, overcrowded, and adoptable Palm Beach County animals are in danger of being euthanized due to a lack of space.
In response, and as part of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s continued commitment to the effort to save the life of every local animal in need, Peggy Adams has taken in 58 cats and 15 dogs in the last two days from Animal Care and Control. These animals are in addition to the 1,142 animals Peggy Adams has pulled from Animal Care and Control over the last 12 months – at risk animals right here in our own local community. Humane Society of the Treasure Coast and the Brevard Humane Society are two additional shelters that have also responded to this local crisis by taking animals in this week from Animal Care and Control.
