Our goal is to find a happy home for every healthy and treatable animal. We can achieve this by knowing more about the animals that come into our care. If you have found a litter of kittens, please read our Found Kitten Resources page. If you found a cat or dog, please visit our Lost and Found Resources

At this time we are not accepting pets from outside Palm Beach County. Please contact a shelter in your area. 

Appointment Process

1. Complete the form at the bottom of this page.

2. Print the confirmation page, bring it and a copy of your pet's veterinary records with you to your appointment. If your pet is a purebred and you have paperwork stating so, bring those with you.

3. Within 48 hours, a representative of the League will email you to schedule an appointment or add your name to the waitlist. Your appointment will take approximately 30-45 minutes which may include a behavior assessment of your pet. Your pet's placement in our adoption center is based on a variety of factors which include the results of the assessment which will be shared with you.

4. After all information about your pet has been gathered and the animal assessment completed, we will discuss your options with you so you can make the best decision for your pet.

If your animal has bitten or broken skin in the last 10 days, please contact Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control.

Fees: The cost to care for and to re-home pets can be in the hundreds of dollars for each animal that comes into our care. The League asks for a suggested minimum $50 donation at the time of your appointment to cover administrative and behavior specialist fees. It is not dependent on the outcome you choose for your pet after its evaluation.

(Methods of payment accepted: Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover)

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is a local, independent 501(c)3 organization that is funded solely by service fees, individual donors, foundations and corporate partners. The League receives no funding from the government or tax revenue.

Surrender Forms

Animal surrender profile forms and veterinary records are critical to our evaluation process. The more we know about your pet, the better we're able to place him or her into a new home.
