A source of great local pride (and for great reason), Alaqua Animal Refuge and founder Laurie Hood have won the hearts of everyone that learns of their saintly mission.
The refuge was founded on a 10-acre farm in Freeport in 2007, after Laurie learned that countless animals were being euthanized every month due to the fact that a “no-kill” shelter didn’t exist in our area.
Today, animals that were once homeless, lost and abused can instead “run and play in sun-soaked pastures, swim in cool, clean ponds, relax on breezy screened porches and graze in lush, green fields.”
Alaqua Animal Refuge has helped find homes for more than 6,000 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 $40,000 per month to run the refuge, which is entirely dependent upon private donations, so please consider a gift of money or time to this extremely worthwhile cause.
