Welcome to ALAQUA ANIMAL REFUGE
Come out to support Alaqua and have a big time at The Grand Opening of "The Tack Room" at Gulfside Trail Rides in Santa Rosa Beach! On May 1, 2014 the party will start at 6:30 with Reverie Lane playing the tunes. The band consists of Spencer Bartoletti, Danielle Bourjeaurd, and Presley Tucker (Tanya Tucker's daughter).
Join us to enjoy music, a silent auction including Old Gringo boots, beer, wine, food by Stinky's, and a good time! The rain or shine event is family friendly and super casual. You can bring a chair or sit on the hay while you enjoy a night of fun with family and friends. This concert event is FREE and open to the public! Donations will be accepted for drinks at the bar and food will be sold by the plate for adults and kids. This event benefits Alaqua Animal Refuge!

Alaqua Animal Refuge – an independent, nonprofit organization located on Florida’s Emerald Coast – advocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, prevention of pet overpopulation and adoption services. Located on 10 acres in Freeport, the refuge was formed by Walton County, Fla.-resident Laurie Hood in 2007 when she discovered that countless animals were being euthanized due to the lack of a no-kill shelter/adoption organization in the area. Since that time, Alaqua Animal Refuge has helped find homes for more than 9,000 animals. Currently, up to 100 animals are adopted per month from this unique rescue facility, which serves as a true refuge for more than 250 animals at any given time.
