To provide shelter for displaced wildlife, particularly owls, is one measure of our mission. Another is about finding solutions for developers faced with having to displace the creatures. To inspire neighbors to also give a hoot – about the owls, and also about the dogs and cats not spayed or neutered, is an additional mission of ours. Providing information on this web site and alerting neighbors as to its existence is just one way we propose to accomplish this.
A very exciting goal for Palm Beach County, is the goal of Countdown 2 Zero. Initiated in 2014 by Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, the Board of County Commissioners, and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, this public-private community collaboration brings organizations together to end euthanasia of adoptable dogs and cats in Palm Beach County. The goal of Countdown 2 Zero is the year 2024 – for when all adoptable animals’ lives’ shall be saved. Imagine there being no such thing as a stray or feral dog or cat, wouldn’t that be great?
Volunteers from the nonprofit organization, Miss Kitty’s Long Branch Ranch Incorporated, are helping to make this a reality, utilizing the TNR program (trap-neuter-return) at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League for cats deemed to not have a home. The TNR program has been a successful way to stop the reproduction of unwanted animals. The Rescue League also offers affordable vet services for pets.

A fourth, and thus far final measure of our mission (and how we plan on funding the others), has to do with stuff. All kinds of stuff in all kinds of ways, is what we are dealing with – from the excessive saving of stuff syndrome to collectors scanning the world for sought-after items. From people in need, needing something for free, to people who have stuff to give and want to see it fulfill a need – these are the ones we help with stuff, for a number of reasons, which, you will see if you follow the blog below.
