Alaqua Animal Refuge


Alaqua Animal Refuge is an independent, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization located on Florida's Emerald Coast. We advocate the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, prevention of pet overpopulation and adoption services. Alaqua, located on 10 acres in the town of Freeport, was formed by Walton County, Florida, resident - Laurie Hood - in 2007 when she discovered that countless animals were being euthanized due to a lack of a no-kill shelter/adoption organization in the area. In its first year and a half of operation, more than 1,500 animals were adopted from Alaqua Animal Refuge. Currently, more than 100 animals are adopted per month from this unique rescue facility, which serves as a true refuge for more than 200 animals at any given time.
