Alaqua is the proud recipient of the ASPCA’s Equine Facility Matching Grant
– April 23, 2016
– Alaqua Animal Refuge is proud to be one of fifteen recipients of a matching grant for new paddock fencing for our rescue horses awarded by the ASPCA. The ASPCA will match each donation towards these new paddocks up to $10,000!
We need your help raising funds to build the fences for these new paddocks that will provide a cleaner, dryer environment for our current and future rescue horses to run and play! Alaqua currently cares for 30 equine animals that have been brought to us from situations of neglect and abuse. We strive to provide them a refuge where they can be happy and healthy until they find their forever homes. These paddocks will ensure that they have room to exercise and socialize with humans and other equines.

About Alaqua Animal Refuge
Alaqua Animal Refuge, a nonprofit organization located in Northwest Florida, advocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, prevention of pet overpopulation and adoption services. Located on 10 acres in the city of Freeport, the refuge was formed by resident and animal activist, 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 thousands of animals. For more information on Alaqua Animal Refuge, go to www.AlaquaAnimalRefuge.org or call 850-880-6399
