Capital Campaign Pledge

The Young Friends have almost completed their pledge of $25,000 towards the new Pet Adoption and Humane Education Center at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. The new building doubles our number of adoptions – saving thousands of additional dogs, cats, puppies and kittens each year. There's less than $2,000 left to go to complete this pledge! Peggy Adams thanks the Young Friends for their initiative and support!

COVID-19: How You Can Help

Peggy's Pantry urgently needs donations to help families in need, especially wet and dry food for both cats and dogs. The Pantry is a program that temporarily helps families care for their pets during times of hardship. Demand for assistance continues to increase as individuals have lost their jobs and face financial difficulty as a result of the COVID-19 virus. You may learn more about Peggy's Pantry on our website:

Party Animal

Saturday, April 24, 2021


Nearly 100 guests joined to support the animals on April 24 at Henry Morrison Flagler Museum for the Young Friends’ 2nd annual gala event, Party Animal. Guests enjoyed a lively neon-colored evening of dining and entertainment, surrounded by the whimsical decorations of Tom Mathieu & Company. A lineup of six adoptable Peggy Adams dogs greeted guests as they walked towards the Flagler’s Keenan Pavilion, which overlooks the Intracoastal. DJ Adam Lipson provided energizing music and Jonathan Duerr served as the evening’s emcee. Guests had the opportunity to bid on an incredible selection of silent auction items and enjoyed an unforgettable dinner catered by SandyJames, all the while supporting the lost, homeless, neglected, and abused dogs and cats coming to Peggy Adams for a second chance at a life every pet deserves.
