About Alaqua
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, prevention of pet   overpopulation and adoption services.  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. These  animals – and many like them, usually more than 300 at any given time – have found safety and care at Alaqua Animal Refuge Inc., a unique full-service, no-kill shelter.
