Adopted! Pet of the Week Mara

Adopted! Pet of the Week Mara

Update: Mara is now in her forever home, but don't forget about her furry friends.

Meet our Pet of the Week Mara. She's a 4-year-old black and tan hound who is up for adoption at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Here's a special letter from Mara:

"Hi, I'm Mara. I'm a down home kind of girl originally from Clewiston. I do my best to be polite to everyone around me. Growing up in a small town, I guess you could say I learned some southern hospitality. But I'm excited to be in West Palm Beach now!

"Even though I'm the new girl in town, I feel right at home here. The smell of the salty air tickles my senses, and I'm anxious to see what the beach is all about. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to go there one day!

"I try to take life as it comes and remain content with what I have. Don't get me wrong though, I certainly have hopes and dreams, too. My biggest hope is to find a forever family who will love me for the rest of my life...I know I'd do a good job of loving them!"

Peggy's Picks is sponsored by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach, Harmony Animal Hospital in Jupiter and Community Animal Hospital in Royal Palm Beach.

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.
