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.

Pets for Heroes

We are proud to offer our Pets for Heroes program to our nation’s military personnel. In an effort to improve the well-being of our armed forces through companion pet adoption, our Pets for Heroes program offers special discounts to servicemen and women who adopt a shelter pet. This program not only gives us a chance to salute our country’s heroes, but also helps us find loving homes for our shelter animals. Individuals are welcome from all United States military branches at any stage of their careers. Program benefits include a waived adoption fee (*purchase of Palm Beach County rabies tag required for Palm Beach County residents, if applicable), plus all the essential items you’ll need to get started with your pet, 30 days of pet insurance, free yearly veterinarian exams, and a 20% lifetime discount on wellness services, as well as flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.

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.

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!

Meet the Grey Whisker Club members!

A Fospice Parent provides permanent fostering of animals with medical conditions which would preclude them from being placed in a loving home through the adoption program. All Fospice animals will receive routine medical care, medication, food and other supplies as needed.

Meet Your Match

Meet Your Match™ is a research-based adoptions program of the ASPCA designed to increase the likelihood that shelter dogs and cats will bond with their adopters. The program evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that they take home a pet they can really click with.

Working Cat Program 

Interested in adopting a feline friend that can live outside? Have a barn, workshop, warehouse, horse stable, or garage that is in need of rodent control? Adopt a Working Cat! Working cats are those that cannot be adopted as traditional pets, are not eligible for Trap Neuter Vaccinate and Return (or TNVR) and, for one reason or another, cannot be returned to their original outdoor habitat, which is always preferable. The Working Cat Program is a win-win for both the cats and adopters! Cats enjoy safe outdoor homes with shelter and a caregiver, and adopters enjoy having healthy, sterilized cats happily tend to their mouse, snake, or 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, you’ll be SAVING LIVES.
