“Our Walk for the Animals has grown tremendously over the years, and we are very excited to once again have this year’s walk located along the beautiful City of West Palm Beach waterfront at the Meyer Amphitheatre,” said Rich Anderson, executive director/CEO of the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “As a nonprofit that receives no city, state or federal government funding, the league relies on community support to help us provide services to more than 30,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens every year, we are extremely grateful to all of those who get involved in this event.”
