About Us

Adopting A Friend

At Alaqua Animal Refuge, we are natural matchmakers.  Our unique no-kill refuge has successfully found homes for thousands of once abused, neglected and homeless animals since opening in 2007. Providing adoption services is not just our job, it is our mission, and matching the perfect pet with loving owners is our passion.

It would be our privilege to help you find a puppy, dog, cat, kitten, horse, or other animal that suits your needs. Our knowledgeable hands-on staff is familiar with each of our rescue animals and will be glad to answer any questions you might have. Looking for a cat-friendly dog, a laid back kitten or a horse with a lot of personality? We can help.

 

If you haven’t yet seen it, you will be pleasantly surprised. You will be able to interact with the animals in a stress-free environment, unlike a traditional kennel.

To start the process, visit our refuge.

Once you have found the perfect…new companion, we will assist you in completing an application. Following a reference check, approval of the form and payment of the adoption fee, you will be able to take home your new pet.

Adoption Fees Include:

  1. Dogs, six months and older: heartworm preventative, flea preventative, preventative worming and vaccinations.
  2. Puppies, under six months: preventative worming and spay/neuter procedure, if age appropriate, or certificate for procedure.
  3. Cats, six months or older: Felv/Fiv snap test, vaccinations, spay/neuter.
  4. Kittens, under six months: Felv/Fiv snap test, vaccinations, and spay/neuter procedure, if age appropriate, or certificate for procedure.

And one last note -Once you have joined our special family of Alaqua Animal Refuge pet owners, we hope you will keep in touch – we love pictures! Also, please tell others about the joy of rescuing an animal in need. And finally,consider becoming an Alaqua Animal Refuge volunteer or a donor. Your support will help us continue our mission to save the lives of countless animals and allow us to continue making meaningful matches. Thank you!

 

 

 

Who We Are

Alaqua Animal Refuge – an independent, nonprofit organization located on Florida’s Emerald Coast – advocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, prevention of pet overpopulation and adoption services. Located on 10 acres in Freeport, the refuge was formed by Walton County, Fla.-resident Laurie Hood in 2007 when she discovered that countless animals were being euthanized due to the lack of a no-kill shelter/adoption organization in the area. Since that time, Alaqua Animal Refuge has helped find homes for more than 8,000 animals. Currently, up to 100 animals are adopted per month from this unique rescue facility, which serves as a true refuge for more than 250 animals at any given time.
