Through Partners, senior citizens in need of a companion animal or a special-needs individual requesting an animal for service or companionship can apply to adopt, with a waived fee. Participants are given the Alaqua Animal Refuge Partners Promise: If you are no longer able to care for your Partners pet, we will accept the animal with open arms, and provide it with shelter and love until the perfect adopter comes along, no matter if it takes days, months or years.
It is a fact – adult cats have a longer stay in the shelter environment than kittens or dogs of any age. Cats are less time intensive in their care requirements and make wonderful pets for busy people, but there are still fewer cats adopted. Unfortunately, there are many cats euthanized in our area shelters for this reason alone.
Alaqua Animal Refuge has decided to take a bold step to save as many of these precious felines as possible. The refuge will no longer be charging an adoption fee for cats over the age of six months of age to approved homes. All cats are fully vetted, so if you are in the market for a new friend, there could not be a better time. You can start your search here or visit our facility and let one of our cats pick you!
