Welcome to ALAQUA ANIMAL REFUGE
A Tribute to Loverboy
Spring represents new beginnings and the beauty of rebirth. It also reminds us of the circle of life.
Today, Alaqua mourns the loss of an iconic family member, Loverboy. A gentle giant who represented only the goodness of God's blessed creatures. A kind and amiable gentleman, he stood still and quietly humored many of our visitors as we took photos and "selfies" with this honorable and stately steer.
We may mourn his passing, yet today, as we reflect on his effect on our lives, we remember that he gave so much, and asked for so little. Yes, today, we wish him peace in his final resting place, but Loverboy left a little piece of his heart to each of us.
Rest in Peace, and accept our appreciation for all that you gave, to so many of your devoted fans.

Safety. Shelter. Second Chances.... this would not be possible without our medical team at Alaqua Animal Refuge. They perform miracles every day, but our medical clinic is far from what we need to handle so many emergencies that we encounter. A generous donor and his wife recognized this and has pledged a dollar-for-dollar match to help us build a new medical clinic at our new location!

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 11,000 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.
