Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill animal shelter and sanctuary, located in the panhandle of Florida dedicated to providing a second chance to abused, neglected, and homeless animals.
This home was founded in 2007 and has stood to its mission of supporting helpless animals. The organization focuses on taking care of abandoned and sick animals. They do these by enlightening the mass on the importance of caring for animals and treating sick animals.
Alaqua is encouraging more interaction of people with the animals for them to understand the effects of animals on their spirits and body. They plan on accommodating all types of injured animals, including the wild. They believe every animal deserves compassion and healing.
The goal of this organization is to make the world a safe place for all types of animals and empower people to do the same.
Alaqua is expanding and plans to build a one-of-a-kind facility and sanctuary on 100 donated acres. This project will be the first of its kind in the United States and will provide a safe haven for injured and orphaned native Florida wildlife, including, birds, mammals, marsupials, and reptiles.
