1 - 20 of 143 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
Alaqua Animal Refuge, an independent, non-profit organization located on Florida's Emerald Coast, advocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, adoption services and prevention of pet overpopulation. Located down a winding gravel road on a picturesque, 10-acre farm in Freeport, Fla., once homeless, lost and abused animals run and play in sun-soaked pastures, swim in cool, clean ponds, relax on breezy screened porches and graze in lush, green fields. People come from all over Northwest Florida and nearby states and cities to adopt our pets.
Alaqua Animal Refuge was founded in 2007 by Walton County, Fla.-resident Laurie Hood 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 5,000 animals. Currently, up to 100 animals are adopted per month from this unique shelter and adoption center, which serves as a true refuge for more than 250 animals at any given time.
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.
Alaqua Animal Refuge invites you to come visit our facility and see our adoptable pets. We are located in Freeport, Florida and are open daily from noon to 5 p.m.
We would love for you to come visit and see if we have that perfect pet for you that will make your family complete!
