Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse is hosting a “Mimosas for Mutts” fundraising event this Sunday, August 25, from 11 am to 2 pm for Alaqua Animal Refuge, Walton County’s “no-kill” animal shelter. Volunteers will be pouring champagne and orange juice for donations to the refuge to help with costs arising when the facility was asked by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office to take in nearly one-hundred dogs and six horses resulting from an ongoing animal abuse investigation. The sudden influx of animals doubled their dog population overnight and put the already strained facility at maximum occupancy.
To make matters worse, for legal reasons, AAR is not allowed to adopt out any of the dogs until the ongoing criminal case has been resolved. Consequently, the facility and it’s volunteers are operating in “emergency management” mode.
Alaqua is also in desperate need of supplies and are asking for donations of: Paper towels Large, heavy-duty garbage bags, Pedigree canned adult and puppy food, Pedigree Little Champions pouches of food (pate style preferred), Bleach Sheets and Laundry detergent.
Monetary and supply donations can be made at Hibiscus during the event or brought to the facility at 914 Whitfield Road in Freeport. In addition, donations can be made online at: http://www.alaquaanimalrefuge.org/HowtoHelp.
