A Letter from

Rich Anderson

Executive Director/CEO

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League

Thank you for helping to make 2018 another incredible year of saving lives and

bringing happiness into homes throughout our community.

Have you already looked at the back cover of this issue of The Shaggy Sheet?

• 5,151 animals placed into new, loving homes

• 14,286 free or low cost spay/neuter surgeries

• 35,717 animals benefiting from Peggy Adams programs

Caring and compassionate friends like you made that and so much more

possible last year. You are truly saving lives each and every day through your

support of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. And you are part of an evergrowing

number of people who are dedicating themselves to building a more

humane community here in Palm Beach County.

Every day, more people are joining us in the effort to save the lives of every

adoptable animal in our local community. So much so, that we are extremely

excited to break ground on the League’s NEW Pet Adoption and Humane

Education Center. This new building will enable us to save twice as many

animals’ lives. With your continued support, we will achieve that goal and

serve as a model for communities throughout Florida and across the nation.

With compassion for the animals,

Rich Anderson

Executive Director/CEO

P.S. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 18th Annual Walk

for the Animals – it was a beautiful day at our new location – the Meyer

Amphitheatre! And thank you to all who voted for Peggy Adams in the Palm

A new leash on life…

On February 18, 2019, Palm Beach County Animal

Care & Control (AC&C) was called to a home in Palm

Beach Gardens where Palm Beach County Sheriff ’s

Office investigators found a 56-year-old man dead

inside while doing a welfare check. Upon entering

the home, investigators realized they also had a dog

hoarding situation on their hands. AC&C arrived

quickly to the scene to transport all

of the dogs to Peggy Adams

Animal Rescue League.

Upon arrival, the 38

dogs smelled of urine

and feces, were

extremely matted

and full of fleas.

The dogs, primarily

smaller breeds

including Poodles

and Pomeranians,

ranged in age from 1

week to 14 years old. Initial

exams by League veterinarians

revealed some of the dogs had underlying skin and

dental issues and all of them needed to be spayed or

neutered. These dogs needed several weeks of care

before being made available for adoption.

“On average, it costs $500 to provide care and find a

new home for an animal,” explains Rich Anderson,

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Executive

Director/CEO. “These dogs will cost Peggy Adams

much more due to their health conditions. If those

in the community would like to support the care

and healing of these dogs, they can donate at


Every dollar counts in saving lives and finding homes

for these deserving animals.”

defecated in his cage. Einstein was given IV fluids with

vitamin B, along with a recommendation to hand feed.

Once Einstein was given a surgical grooming to

remove all his matting, he showed remarkable

improvement and was able to walk on his own and eat

from a bowl. Einstein has since gained some

weight, received one-on-one care in our

Critical Care area and was adopted

Alexis, Adopted January 16, 2019

Alexis has settled in nicely with her new family and

is working on getting into a daily routine. Her dad,

Richard, has jokingly commented on what a lazy

girl Alexis is. When he tries to get her to walk, she

stops every few feet to sit and sniff. Alexis is now on

a walking schedule with dad a couple of times a day

which has resulted in some beneficial weight loss for

her. All the neighbors enjoy seeing Alexis on her daily

walks and have commented on what a “friendly and

cute” dog she is.

“He has brought so much happiness and joy in our

lives. During a time in our lives of such despair after

losing our two fur-babies. I already can’t imagine my

life without him. I truly believe he was a gift from

heaven. I’m so grateful to Peggy Adams for coming

to his rescue and for taking such great care of him.

I truly see that everyone there has an equal love and

respect for animals that we do as well.”

Adoption Ambassador Program

Looking for a way to help? Become an ADOPTION


Adoption Ambassadors play a crucial role at

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. In this role,

Ambassadors are given a shelter dog or cat who is

HIGHLY adoptable to take home. These volunteers are

responsible for promoting their adoptable animal by

taking them wherever they go (for example, Clematis

St., the Green Market or other animal-friendly places).

The dogs wear their “Adopt Me” vests and the cats

are in “Adopt Me” strollers. Ambassadors are solely

responsible for the promotion and eventual adoption

of their animals. Ambassadors receive special tools

and training so that they’re set up for success. Once

the animal is adopted, the Ambassadors can return

to Peggy Adams

for another highly

adoptable dog, cat,

puppy or kitten.

“My husband thinks

two dogs are our

home’s limit, so in

order to keep the

peace, I pretend to

agree. But now I can foster an unlimited number of

dogs each year! My role as an Adoption Ambassador

for Peggy Adams gives me the fortunate opportunity

to find wonderful forever homes for the shelter dogs,

while fostering them at mine. My very first foster

was a 10-year-old, small mixed breed with a mohawk

named, Chico. He had the sweetest personality! I

shared his pictures and story on social media and was

immediately contacted by an old high school friend

living in Ohio. One week later, she flew down to meet

him and it was love at first sniff! The next day, that

loving, senior dog was on a plane to his forever home.

He now has a big brother, Chester, a wardrobe of

sweaters, a collection of warm beds, and an incredible

human that will care for him, and love him the rest of

his life.”

– Jacqueline Batcha

Peggy Adams. She posted many pics of him on

Facebook and I fell for him completely! I’ve only ever

had one dog at a time, most recently my 11 year-old

puggle, Chester P. Copperpot, who I’ve had since he

was a pup. Chester gets along with all dogs and people,

and I always wondered if I should have had another

dog, a friend for him. Could Chico be the step brother

that Chester needed? I called Jacque to discuss the

details and completed the paperwork. On December

15th, I boarded a plane out of Dayton, Ohio to get my

new little buddy and Chester’s step brother! When

we arrived back in Ohio, the introduction between

Chester and Chico was smooth as silk! In fact, while

I’m at work, Chester and Chico can be seen snuggling

together in our sunroom throughout the day. Sharing

my life with these two sweet older dogs is both my

pleasure and privilege.”

– Faith Heckler, Happy Dog Mom

Volunteer Appreciation

Expressing our gratitude to those who support

Peggy Adams is always of upmost importance to us…

including showing appreciation to our very important

volunteers. On Friday, January 11, 2019, the League

hosted its annual Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony,

honoring those volunteers who donated 50 hours or

more of their time in 2018. Volunteers and staff came

together to celebrate the many accomplishments

of their fellow colleagues and to acknowledge their

contributions that led to a record-breaking year at

Peggy Adams.

“The League continues to make great

accomplishments each year and our volunteers play

an extremely

important role in

making that happen,”

says Heidi Nielsen,

Assistant Director of

JB Dixson - Lifetime Achievement

Peggy Adams Animal

Rescue League. “By offering their time and talent,

our volunteers improve the quality of life for our

animals while they wait for their new forever homes.

For those who would like to start volunteering but

think you can’t because you’d want to take all of the

animal’s home, there are other areas and departments

that need your help and when you volunteer, you help

thousands of animals.”

Dangerous Plants and Fruiting Trees

Toxic to Dogs and Cats

Spring is in the air and it’s our natural desire to be

outside enjoying nature. Flowers are blooming, we

are in our gardens… planting trees, and enjoying the

fruits of our labors (literally).

As we enjoy the beauty and satisfy our human taste

buds… danger lurks in our presence. Did you know

our common plants and trees can be toxic to our

beloved dogs and cats? Here is a list of a few (not all)

of the more common plants and trees that may be

dangerous to our pets:

Asparagus Fern: contains a steroid called sapogin

which is commonly found in a variety of plants. If

ingested, it may cause vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal

pain, or even an allergic dermatitis.

The Corn Plant: has a toxic agent that may cause

vomiting, diarrhea with or without blood, depression,

and even cause the pupils to dilate.

Diffenbachia, Elephant Ear, Heartleaf

Philodendron, and Satin Pothos: all contain a

toxic agent that may cause oral irritations, increased

salivation, difficulty swallowing, and vomiting.

Cyclamen: will also cause increased salivation,

vomiting, diarrhea, heart problems, seizures and

eventual death.

Jade Plant: will cause ataxia (wobbling), and

bradycardia (decreased heart rate).

Common Fruits Toxic to Dogs and Cats:

Apples, Apricots, Cherries, Peaches, and

Plums: contain cyanogenic glycosides which can

cause brick red mucous membranes, dilated pupils,

difficulty breathing, panting and shock.

Avocados: contain a Persin which can cause

vomiting and diarrhea.

Grapes and Raisins: can cause irreversible

kidney damage.

What should you do if you suspect your pet has

ingested one of the aforementioned plants or fruits?

1. Call your local veterinarian right away, and call

the ASPCA poison hotline.

2. Remove the plant or fruit from the mouth, hair,

and skin.

3. Bring the plant or fruit to the vet for easy


Take whatever steps you

can to protect your dog

and/or cat from exposure

to poisonous plants.

This includes

removing or

relocating such

plants from your

home and yard.

Aloe: will cause vomiting and bloody urine.

Lilies: the Easter lily and Star Gazer Lily are very

toxic to cats, causing decreased appetite, lethargy,

kidney failure and eventual death if left untreated.

The Peace Lily is toxic to both dogs and cats causing

an oral irritation.

Record-Breaking Crowd at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s

18th Annual Barry Crown Walk for the Animals

Over 1,800 people and their adorable pets

gathered for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue

League’s 18th Annual Barry Crown Walk for

the Animals on February 23, 2019 at the Meyer

Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. Participants

raised over $112,000, which will help save the lives of

injured, homeless and abandoned animals that are or

will be in the care of the League.

Peggy Adams’ 2019 Walk mascot, Chloe, is a former

shelter dog herself. Chloe, along with Rich Anderson,

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s Executive

Director/CEO, led the walkers and their pets on the

scenic one-mile route along the West Palm Beach

waterfront on Flagler Drive. Anderson drove the pace

car sponsored by Nozzle Nolen. Participants enjoyed

a perfect South Florida day with live entertainment,

local vendors and a complimentary breakfast provided

by Lynora’s. There were also chances to win amazing

silent auction items and raffle prizes. Jennifer Ross

from SUNNY 107.9 FM and WFTL 850 AM once

again graciously hosted the day’s festivities,

including a pet costume contest with fabulous

prize baskets sponsored by NCCI.

“This was a record-breaking

Walk for the Animals with

more than 1,800 people

registered,” Rich

Anderson noted.

“We were excited

to have our

annual event

at the Meyer

Amphitheatre in

West Palm Beach

and are grateful

for all of those

who came out

and participated.

As a nonprofit that receives no city or federal

government funding, Peggy

Adams relies on community

support to help us provide

services to more than

30,000 cats, dogs,

puppies and kittens

every year.”

Mother Knows Best

Kitten Season 2019

Is about to begin in Palm Beach County.

Here is what you can do to help save lives

We are at the start of Kitten Season: the time from

early spring through late fall when cats mate and

give birth to countless kittens. Peggy Adams Animal

Rescue League is providing critical public awareness

tips to help kittens, shelters and the community

withstand the season. The abundance of litters

throughout the community typically results in too

many kittens being brought to area shelters, even

though it is best for newborn kittens to be left with

their mothers.

“Most discoveries of newborn kittens do not call for

human assistance and, in fact, no intervention is the

best thing,” said Heidi Nielsen, Assistant Director of

Peggy Adams. “The goal is to keep the mother and

kittens together to ensure the best chances for the

kittens’ survival until the kittens are eating on their

own and can be safely removed for socialization

and adoption.”

Before jumping to the rescue,

consider the following:

In the first weeks of their lives, kittens need

their mother’s care and antibodies from her

milk. As they grow, the mother will begin to

give her kittens the critical training needed to

survive on their own.

Before concluding that the kittens have been

abandoned, quietly observe from a safe

distance to determine if the mother is present.

The mother will continually stay with her litter

for the first day or two after giving birth. Then,

she will need to leave for short periods of time

to find food for herself. If the mother is not

present, she is most likely scouting for food

and will return.

A mother cat will instinctively move her nest

of kittens. If a single, young kitten is spotted,

it is likely that it is the first of the group to be

moved to the new location or the last of the

group to get moved from the old location.

Do not interfere with the kittens or the space

they are occupying. It is essential to not handle

them, create shelter, or feed them as long as the

mother is around. These interventions may

cause the mother stress and possibly to

abandon her family.

Help by providing food and water to the

mother. Be sure to place food and water

far enough away from the nest so you do

not disturb the mother and kittens or

draw predators.

Cats should be brought in for spay/neuter

once the kittens are weaned. For details, please

visit PeggyAdams.org/Found-Kitten-Resources

and PeggyAdams.org/tnvr

Following these simple measures will increase the

survival rate of the kittens, allowing them to thrive in

their natural environment. Additionally, it will allow

local animal shelters to use their resources to further

assist the current shelter population with the critical

care they need and help place adoptable animals

in homes.

Rescue League and more details on Kitten Season,

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League held a

groundbreaking ceremony on February 21 st for its

new Pet Adoption and Humane Education Center.

Nearly 100 guests, including board members, donors,

dignitaries and friends of the League, joined in this

momentous occasion.

The new Pet Adoption and Humane Education Center

is being constructed at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue

League over the next year. Upon its scheduled opening

in late 2020, the Center will have the capacity to

double the numbers of animal lives saved.

“It is because of the incredibly generous support of

thousands of caring donors, and the dedication of our

Board of Directors under the leadership of its Chair,

Lesly Smith, that we are able to take this major step

in order to save more lives,” said Rich Anderson,

Executive Director/CEO, of Peggy Adams Animal

Rescue League. “Our goal is to continue making

Peggy Adams one of the nation’s leading animal

welfare organizations. This new facility will allow us

to save twice as many cats and dogs each year and

provide quality humane education programs that are

sorely lacking in our community. Educating more

people – youth in particular – about the humane

treatment of animals, is critical to the prevention

of cruelty, abuse and the abandonment of animals,”

Anderson added.

Peggy Adams still needs the community’s support

to continue to raise the remaining funds needed to

complete this Pet Adoption and Humane Education

Center. For more information and to donate, please

The Race is On! To Finish the Pet Adoption Center!

From tiny bricks to entire building wings, our

community is energized in support of the new Pet

Adoption and Humane Education Center, slated to

open in the fall of 2020!

The $14 million raised to date is a great start, but we

still need significant support to complete the project

in the next year.

Meaningful naming

opportunities are still available. We hope you might

find a kennel, a cat condo, a dog room, a play yard,

a brick, a bench, or an outdoor cat café that would

give you a thrill to contribute! (See page 16 for all

remaining naming opportunities).

On behalf of the animals, we thank you so much!

At their inaugural meeting in September 2018, the

Young Friends pledged $25,000 to name a Dog Room

in the new Pet Adoption & Humane Education

Center at Peggy Adams. They are 90% toward their

goal, with all donations being matched as they

come in! If you’d like to support, please visit

PeggyAdams.org/YoungFriends and look for

the capital campaign donate button.

Fritz Van der Grift and

Kelly Vitko lead the

Young Friends Walk

Team up Flagler Drive

on February 23 rd

Continuing the

excitement, on

February 23 rd , the Young

Friends had a team of

almost 20 members at Peggy

Adam’s Annual Walk for the

Animals, raising nearly $2,000 via team sponsors and

while attending a post-Walk brunch at Lynora’s, where

10% of all proceeds that day benefited the League.

Young Friends’ Co-Chairs Fritz and Judy

Van der Grift and Cambria visit with Peggy Adams’

Executive Director/CEO, Rich Anderson, at the

Royal Adopt and Shop on January 19

Then to welcome the New Year, the Young Friends

partnered with Royal Poinciana Plaza to host a “Royal

Adopt and Shop” on Saturday, January 19 th . Of the 7

adoptable dogs and 4 adoptable cats that arrived for

the party in Peggy Adams’ PetMobile, all but one

found new forever homes that day! Over 100

guests of ALL ages enjoyed the animals,

live music, gelato provided by Sant

Ambroeus, and margaritas from

Coyo Taco. The Young Friends

look forward to continuing this

partnership with the Royal

Poinciana Plaza and hosting

more events with them in

the future.

Company Corner

A big “Thank You” to the generous employees of the

Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office.

They donated 650 pounds of food to Peggy Adams

Animal Rescue League! This is the second year in

a row that they have collected items for the League

through their fundraising initiatives.

Special acknowlegement to Chewy.com for their

charitable donation as well. Food donations such

as these are extremely important to help the

community in need. Peggy’s Pantry provides food

to families that might not be able to afford it and

might have otherwise surrendered their pets to

shelters such as ours.

Special thanks to the amazing team at Velocity

Community Credit Union! Their fantastic staff had

an ongoing internal fundraiser which allowed them to

wear jeans to work on Fridays and through this... they

collected over $6,000!

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League relies

solely on contributions from supporters and

we are incredibly grateful for donations such

as these. If you are holding a donation drive,

fundraiser or would like additional

information, please contact us at

Donations@PeggyAdams.org or

call 561.686.3663

Thank you to current members

of the Leadership Circle...

Four years ago, we were inspired by our love

for our rescue kitty, Lily, to visit Peggy Adams

Animal Rescue League. We had found it on Charity

Navigator. Having no children, we have chosen to

benefit animals and their welfare. But we had no

idea what a remarkable place Peggy Adams would

turn out to be. We had the most amazing tour that

day. We came home breathless and told everyone

we ran in to about the beautiful, spotless, loving,

caring, most incredible facility, and the programs

and the people there. One friend even sent a check

immediately to become a Guardian Angel herself!

We are SO thrilled with our decision to support

Peggy Adams long term through the Forever

Friends Society, and also with our annual gifts to the

Guardian Angel program, Peggy’s Pantry, and now

this year, the Leadership Circle!”

Have you ever wanted to add a pet to your family, but you just

couldn’t? If you are someone who wants to “watch over” the canine

and feline residents in our dog and cat adoption center, in a way that

hovers above the rest, then please become one of our Guardian Angels.

A Guardian Angel funds the care of our resident cats or dogs in a

specific condo or kennel. During your year as a Guardian Angel, you’ll

be helping a number of pets as they await their forever home.

Your status will be recognized with a card on your sponsored condo

or kennel naming you, your family, or your business as that pet’s

Guardian Angel. You’ll also receive a certificate and a special angel pin.

Anyone who visits the shelter will be reminded of your generosity.

The average cost of care for a dog or cat in our program is $19 a day

and the average length of stay with us is 30 days.

For more information, please contact Amy Lowe

It’s never too late to

instill philanthropy in

children. They should

learn that philanthropy

is not just for adults or for

the wealthy, but that anyone

making an attempt to better

the society is a philanthropist.

We wanted to give a special shout out to Nicholas, a young

philanthropist. In lieu of gifts for his 11 th birthday party,

Nicholas requested donations of food, litter and toys for

our Pantry. On March 12 th , Nicholas and his dad arrived

in a truck loaded with supplies that will help many local

families in need. Way to go, Nicholas!

(In addition, Nicholas and Peggy Adams would like to thank

Hot Shots Paintball for their donations to our Pantry.)
