So I decided it was time… to get a dog that is.
What I knew for sure:
- I wanted a rescue dog
- A dog under 20 lbs
- I will find my furever doggie at Peggy Adams, Tri-County Animal Rescue, or Animal Control
On that special day I went to Animal control first, I was pleasantly surprised how clean the facilities were considering it was a government facility and I’m assuming funding is hard to come by. Unfortunately there were mostly big dogs (and a lot of pit bulls) and none that seemed like a good match. Off to Peggy Adams I went.
I was shocked at how nice the facilities were. The large and small dogs were separated, when I saw my furever doggie, love at first sight. I only had to fill out one brief questionnaire while I waited to meet my “Puma (a two year old Chihuahua mix) and then they let us play and just get to know one another. The staff was so nice and answered all of my questions. They really took a lot of time with me since I was very overwhelmed (this was my first dog). They let me know exactly what to expect over the next few days as I waited for him to come home (he had to be neutered before he left the facility).
When I was scheduled to pick Puma up all of his shots were up to date, he was neutered, microchipped, registered with the county, I was given a schedule of what I needed to follow up with, a bag of food, and the option to buy his heartworm and flea and tick medicine at a lower cost through them, and his updated medical records.
I was extremely happy with the service I received at Peggy Adams and I would most certainly recommend others to look at a rescue dog when you’re looking for your new best friend and Peggy Adams would be a great place to start.
