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.
It would be our privilege to help you find a puppy, dog, cat, kitten, horse, or other animal that suits your needs. Our knowledgeable hands-on staff is familiar with each of our rescue animals and will be glad to answer any questions you might have. Looking for a cat-friendly dog, a laid back kitten or a horse with a lot of personality? We can help.
In order to be considered for an adoption you must meet the following criteria:
Copy of Driver’s License or Picture ID will be required at time of adoption. If you rent, you may be required to present a copy of your lease.
[Completion of this application does not guarantee the adoption of an animal in our care.]
To start the process, visit our refuge.
If you haven’t yet seen it, you will be pleasantly surprised. You will be able to interact with the animals in a stress-free environment, unlike a traditional kennel.
Once you have found the perfect… new companion, we will assist you in completing an application. Following a reference check, approval of the form and payment of the adoption fee, you will be able to take home your new pet.
Cat: We have waived adoption fees on cats over 6 months of age
Other Animals: Varies per animal.
And one last note –
Once you have joined our special family of Alaqua Animal Refuge pet owners, we hope you will keep in touch – we love pictures! Also, please tell others about the joy of rescuing an animal in need. And finally, consider becoming an Alaqua Animal Refuge volunteer or a donor. Your support will help us continue our mission to save the lives of countless animals and allow us to continue making meaningful matches. Thank you!
