We are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to our dogs

Friday August 19, 2016 the Rescue Community lost one of their Angels. Peggy Dunn lost her battle with cancer. She was a Kind, Caring and Loving individual to Humans and All Animals. She worked 24 hours a day with no vacations or time for herself. She gave her Heart and Soul to Rehabilitating and Loving Dogs that would have been Euthanized or Forgotten. There have been hundreds of Dogs that have been rescued by Peggy and found new Loving homes because of her thorough adoption process that would have the dog pick the Family to call home.

In her last Month Peggy asked a close organization to her if they would care for her remaining Dogs. They stepped up and took in all of them. Peggy's wish would be to have all supporters of hers to help those Dogs by donating to Canine Estates 292 Alternate 19 North, Palm Harbor, FL 34683. Her Legacy can live on in the support of those Dogs she left behind.

God Be With You Peggy. We know you are the Angel Looking over your Dogs and helping them find loving homes.






If you have ever watched the poor, scared Dogs on the commercials and wanted to help them all then think about Adopting, Sponsoring or Donating to a small Non Profit Rescue. Those TV Ads are very heart wrenching but remember they cost thousands of dollars to run in prime time and the organizations have a large paid staff. Most of the animals they rescue are put off on small rescues. Pekes and Pals is a small Non Profit Rescue that is solely dependant on your Donations and Support. We have seen many Dogs come here that were near death from abuse and put extreme effort into getting them back to a healthy state. A lot of Personal care and money goes into each rescue. Peggy Dunn has put her heart and soul into each rescued animal and when they find a home a piece of her heart goes with them. Below are before and after pictures of what Pekes and Pals stands for. Please see Our Dogs on the Petfinder List below the pictures.














We believe that each abused or abandoned animal, no matter its age, appearance or condition, deserves a life free of abuse, starvation, disease or forced breeding. Somewhere there's a responsible, loving family ready to give the rescues in our care a home filled with lots of love, plenty to eat and the assurance that they'll never be beaten, neglected or used to make babies for profit ever again. Our job is to match that guardian angel with their perfect companion.
We rescue dogs of all breeds, not just Pekes, and care for them in our homes until we can find new families for them. Every rescued dog is examined by a veterinarian. They receive all their shots, are checked for heartworms and put on a heartworm preventative. They are neutered or spayed before placement with a new family. If we are unable to find a suitable home for one of our rescues, they remain at Pekes and Pals for the duration of their lives. We never euthanize a rescued dog simply because no one else wants him/her.

The rescued Dogs at Pekes and Pals are housed in private homes and they are not offered for viewing until and unless your adoption application is approved; and then, only by appointment. Once you are approved you will be invited to a "meet and greet" session. Taking the time to get acquainted with the dogs usually results in a desirable, and sometimes unexpected, match. The dogs make it abundantly clear who they want to go home with, so don't be surprised if you leave with a dog other than the one you came to see! If you don't feel that special bond with any of the dogs on your first visit, you are welcome to come back as many times as needed, by appointment, to find that special dog.

Many of the dogs we rescue have medical problems resulting from abuse and/or neglect and require medication and/or treatment. Regretfully, we must charge an adoption fee, but the fee set for each dog is the minimum amount required to cover veterinary services.
