Adopted! Pet of the Week Dixie

Adopted! Pet of the Week Dixie

Update: Dixie is now in her forever home, but don't forget about her furry friends up for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Meet our Pet of the Week Dixie. She's a 5-year-old Labrador Retriever Mix.

Dixie is a very unassuming girl in our kennels. She keeps to herself and stays pretty quiet for the most part, so she's easily overlooked by our visitors. But once you take her outside, her true personality shines and she comes to life! She loves to go for walks and spend time in our fields exploring and frolicking about. One of her favorite pastimes is lizard hunting. With her nose to the ground and magnifying glass out, she goes into stealth mode and her Sherlock Holmes skills kick in. And when she can't find a lizard to stalk, a squirrel or bird will do just as nicely!

Dixie also has a softer side. She's a sweet and cuddly girl who loves to spend time with her human friends. Nothing makes her happier than a little human companionship. And although she loves just about every person she meets, she is a little pickier about her canine friends. And felines…let's just say they might as well be lizards! Dixie is excited to find a loving family to call her own. One where she can have her humans to herself and soak up all the attention!

Dixie is up for adoption at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, and if you adopt her, her initial exam is free compliments of our Pet Connections' vet sponsors:

About Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is a limited-access humane society and provides services to more than 15,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year. Operating continuously since 1925, we have been positively impacting animal welfare and addressing overpopulation in Palm Beach County through a variety of services.

Through the adoption and spay/neuter programs, our vision is to ensure that there are no homeless animals and every animal has a home in Palm Beach County.

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, receiving no state or federal funding. It is dependent exclusively upon private donations, grants, bequests and fundraising events to provide quality programs and services to the community. Your donations directly support the services and programs in place to help animals in need.

Our mission is to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to furnish medical and other services for the care of companion animals; to care for, protect, and find quality homes for homeless and neglected animals; to advocate animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals, for the mutual benefit of both.
