About Alaqua Animal Refuge:
Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill facility founded in 2007 and located on a sprawling and bucolic 10-acre farm in Freeport, FL. The refuge is located about 20 minutes north of the Emerald Coast’s sugary white beaches, which are among some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. While there are countless animals who are lucky to live amongst the stunning blue-green gulf and enjoy the high quality of life that our area has to offer, thousands of animals are being neglected and abused, or paddling along the margins of lonely streets, looking in vain for the owners who once loved but later abandoned them. Alaqua has come a long way in all aspects of operation, initially providing shelter to only a handful of dogs, cats and other animals and requiring only a few staff members to work to find these animals permanent, loving homes. But the shelter has since grown and expanded into a refuge that provides respite for over 250 animals at any given time. Since its founding year, Alaqua staff and volunteers have helped find homes for more than 15,000 animals, with up to 100 adoptions completed each month.
