Since our founding in 2007, Alaqua’s original belief remains ever true and stronger today: Every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance…of life, hope, happiness, and most of all, love. Find out more about our Capital Campaign to expand our Refuge and Sanctuary from 10 acres to 100-acres of donated land.

Our unique no-kill refuge has successfully found homes for thousands of once abused, neglected and homeless animals since opening in 2007. Providing adoption services is not just our job, it is our mission, and matching the perfect pet with loving owners is our passion.
