Adopted: Pet of the Week Mia

Adopted: Pet of the Week Mia

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

Meet our Pet of the Week Mia. She's a 2-year-old pointer/Weimaraner mix who is up for adoption at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Here's a special letter from Mia:

"Hi, I'm Mia. People tell me what a pretty girl I am, but I don't really see what all the fuss is about. I guess I'm just too modest. I'm an unassuming girl who enjoys the simple things in life. I can be a bit bashful when I first meet you, but it doesn't take me long to scope you out and realize that you're just interested in saying hello. And if you have a treat, well pretty much all my shyness flies out the window, and you're my new best friend.

"Once I'm really comfortable with you, I like to sit as close as possible to you. It brings me comfort, and plus it puts me at a good distance for giving lots of kisses!

"One thing I should probably admit up front is that cats don't seem to be too fond of me. I guess I just play a little too rough for them. But I say it's their loss. My biggest hope right now is to find a nice, quiet home where I can build some self-confidence and blossom into the happy girl that's lingering underneath my shy exterior."

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.
