Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Providing programs to the community is also central to Alaqua Animal Refuge’s mission. Since 2008, the shelter has offered its S.N.A.P. Program, providing free or low-cost spay and neuter procedures to more than 2,000 animals per year.
As we grow and develop our facility and operations, we will adhere to our guiding purpose: To give neglected, lost and abandoned animals a chance at life.
To start the process, visit our refuge – and 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.
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:
• Dogs, six months and older: heartworm preventative, flea preventative, preventative worming and vaccinations. $150
• Puppies, under six months: preventative worming and spay/neuter procedure, if age appropriate, or certificate for procedure. $175
• Cats, six months or older: Felv/Fiv snap test, vaccinations, spay/neuter. $100
• Kittens, under six months: Felv/Fiv snap test, vaccinations, and spay/neuter procedure, if age appropriate, or certificate for procedure. $125
• Horse adoption fee vary between each animal. Each horse is always up to date on all shots and deworming medication.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
