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 lose 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:

To make donating to Peggy's Pantry a little easier, we have selected in-stock items on Amazon that you may order from the comfort and safety of your home. Please click here to view the specific life-saving supplies that we need the most

Capital Campaign Pledge

The Young Friends have pledged $25,000 towards the new Pet Adoption and Humane Education Center being built at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. With construction well underway , the new building will double our number of adoptions – saving thousands of additional dogs, cats, puppies and kittens each year. The new Center is still scheduled to open in November 2020. Peggy Adams thanks the Young Friends for their initiative and support!

Party Animal
Saturday, November 30, 2019


Over 275 guests joined us on November 30 for the first-ever Party Animal! Attendees experienced a neon-colored evening while surrounded by the whimsical decorations of Sutka Visual Design. A lineup of six adoptable Peggy Adams dogs, dressed in their finest animal costumes, greeted people as they walked from the valet to the Norton's entrance. DJ Christopher Sealey provided energizing music and Jonathan Duerr served as emcee. Guests bid on an amazing selection of silent auction items and enjoyed delectable bites and creative cocktails catered by Starr Catering Group at the Norton.
