Alaqua Animal Refuge, a nonprofit organization located in Northwest Florida,advocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter,prevention of pet overpopulation and adoption services. Located on 10 acres in thecity of Freeport, the refuge was formed by resident and animal activist LaurieHood in 2007 when she discovered that countless animals were being euthanized dueto the lack of a no-kill shelter/adoption organization in the area. Since that time,AlaquaAnimal Refuge has helped find homes for more than 8,000 animals. As many as 100 animals are adopted per month from this unique rescue facility, whichserves as a true refuge for more than 250 animals at any given time.
