Good Dog Training Program

The Good Dog Training Program was designed to help harder to adopt dogs find their forever homes.  These dogs are wonderful dogs. They’re playful, sweet, and affectionate…  Their problem?  The way they look.  Dogs in the Good Dog Training Program are usually 50 pounds or over and have the appearance of a bully type breed —which some people may find intimidating.

We’re here to change that perception! With our new Good Dog Training Program, these dogs complete some of the most hands-on training out of all the dogs at Peggy Adams. Six to eight dogs are put through a rigorous but fun 6 week training course ending with a certification exam to show off their new-found skills.

Dolly’s Dream

Dolly’s Dream is a project to encourage the adoption of our “Square Heads,” or some may call “Pit Bulls” or “bully breeds,” and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs.

The Dolly’s Dream Project sponsors two great dogs available for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. When these two dogs are adopted, the adopters will receive a waived adoption fee, free ID tag and County tag, collar, harness, leash, training crate, dog bed, toys, training treat bag, food and water bowls, and seven months of pet insurance.

Grey Whisker Club

Save a Senior! Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League encourages the adoption of our senior pets through our Grey Whisker Club adoption program. Research shows that having a pet helps people lead healthier lives, and the benefits are many: companionship, lowered blood pressure, stress relief, sense of purpose and responsibility, and the list goes on. We think pets are so important to keeping our community healthy and happy, we’ll even pick up the tab on the adoption fee and ID tag, as well as yearly wellness exams, monthly flea and heartworm preventatives, and annual vaccinations. Senior pets make the best pets! A $20 rabies tag fee does apply to Palm Beach County residents.

Working Cat Program 

Have a barn, workshop, warehouse, horse stable, or garage that is in need of rodent control? Are you looking for an eco-friendly solution to your problem? A working cat just might be the answer.

The Working Cat Program is a win-win for both cats and adopters! Cats enjoy safe outdoor homes with shelter and a caregiver, and adopters enjoy having healthy, sterilized cats happily tend to their vermin troubles. Adopting a working cat is the eco-friendly, green solution to your pest problem. No toxins, no chemicals, 100% natural and organic. And, as an added bonus, adopting working cats saves lives.

Foster Care Program

A Foster Parent provides a temporary home for an animal(s) until they are ready for adoption. Foster parents care for homeless pets who generally are: Underage, Sick/Injured, or need Behavior/Socialization. Foster parents provide a safe space for animals like these to thrive and grow. Fostering can last anywhere from a few days to a few months, depending on the needs of the animal. We always have a need for foster homes throughout the year.
