Alaqua Animal Refuge Pet of the Week is Spencer Spencer Hi, my name is Spencer! If you are looking for a mature relationship, it might be me that you are searching for!   I am an 8-year-old male and a blend of all the best American breeds – an All-American melting pot if you will. I’m loyal, gentle, and faithful. I’m the sort of dog that loves to go for a walk, but is also happy sitting quietly by your side. No questions as to what my personality will be – what you see is what you get! I’m already trained, well behaved, and housebroken. Just ask anyone – old dogs are great!   I’ve been at Alaqua Animal Refuge a couple of months and I’ve made many friends. The volunteers say I’m a joyful fellow and one of the best-behaved dogs here. They’ve taught me a lot and introduced me to new things. I love to play in the yard, and would do well in a family with children or other dogs. Despite my past, I’m an optimist. I am also quite the “ladies man”, as I have stolen a few hearts here at Alaqua. They call me a “gentle soul” and say I would be a perfect pet. I’m definitely a people pleaser.   Please don’t be nervous about me being 8-years-old. I still have a lot of living to do! Alaqua has given me a second chance and I am living everyday to the fullest. If you need a meaningful relationship, consider taking a chance on me. Come see me, ask if you can visit the charming and debonair gentleman, the one that always has a smile on his face. Who knows, it might just be you that’ll make my dream of having a home of my own come true!   For more information about Spencer or any of our other adoptable animals please visit our website, www.alaquaanimalrefuge.org/FindAPet, come for a visit, or give us a call at 850-880-6399.   Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill animal refuge located in Northwest Florida. The refuge has placed over 10,000 animals of all kinds since it’s inception in 2007, and has grown to become a recognized leader in animal welfare and animal cruelty prevention.   ___________________________________   “30A Sticker” Donations Raise $95,934 for Alaqua Animal Refuge!   Alaqua Animal Refuge and 30A.com announced that their “30A Sticker Donation Box” partnership has raised $95,934 for the local charity since inception, and $35,147 in the past 12 months alone.   Although 30A.com gives away its famous round Gulf-blue decals for free in local businesses, donation boxes have been set-up in many locations to encourage contributions to Walton County’s premiere “no-kill” shelter. The 30A stickers are sponsored by Dune Allen Realty Vacation Rentals.   “The donation boxes have kept us very busy this summer,” said Linda Draper, an Alaqua volunteer who manages the 30A sticker donation box program. “The tourists and the locals have been very generous.”   To-date, Alaqua Animal Refuge has helped find homes for more than 10,000 animals, with as many as 100 animals being adopted every month, and it’s home to as many as 250 animals at any given time. It costs $60,000 per month to run the refuge, which is dependent upon private donations.   “With $35,000, we can provide food, medical care, and rehabilitation to the hundreds of animals that cross through our gates.” said Laurie Hood, Alaqua Animal Refuge’s president and founder. “Our no-kill shelter and adoption center is entirely dependent on donations, and every dollar generated through the program helps us save the lives of homeless, abused and neglected animals.”   30A.com’s Mike Ragsdale said that over 740,000 30A stickers have been given away so far.   “We were so proud to learn how much money has been generated for this amazing local charity,” said Ragsdale. “It’s a perfect partnership: Fans get a free memento of their time here on 30A, Alaqua Animal Refuge receives the donations, and thousands of animals are provided an opportunity to live happy and healthy lives.”   Any local business that would like to have an Alaqua Animal Refuge / 30A Sticker donation box is asked to please call Alaqua at 850-880-6399.
