Alaqua Animal Refuge is a recognized leader in animal rescue, welfare, cruelty prevention, and advocacy. Alaqua has become the “go-to” organization to help animals of all kinds including domestic, exotic, farm, equine, and native wildlife. Committed to providing protection, shelter, and care to animals in need, this private, non-profit Refuge also offers an adoption center, educational outreach, and community programs that extend far beyond their geographic location. Alaqua is currently amid a relocation and expansion campaign to continue the build of this one-of-a-kind facility—the first in the United States—on 100 acres. The new facility and sanctuary enable Alaqua to rescue and rehabilitate even more animals, as well as be an education and training center for animal welfare advocates.
