Ways to Help Alaqua Animal Refuge

We are often asked, “How can I help?” and we can’t tell you how much we value your willingness to help us continue the success of Alaqua.

When faced with an animal in need, many feel a sense of hopelessness, not knowing where to start or how they can really make a difference in the wellbeing and hopeful future of an animal that is hurt, hungry, or has simply lost its way.

Because our facility operates under the generous donations of wonderful people like you, the best way you can help is to continue to contribute to our cause, knowing that your financial contribution is making a difference in the lives of so many animals. Your influence makes it possible for animals to have a roof over their heads, food in their bellies, proper medical attention and care when needed, and dedicated people surrounding them to rehabilitate them and reassure their placement in a safe, secure, loving forever home. Even the smallest donations can make a difference.

However, if you are unable to give financially, there are plenty of other ways to help our facility continue its mission. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Volunteer Your Time – Come out and spend some time with our animals. They love going for walks and just being with good people. Some of these buddies have had a hard life, and just being there to reassure them that good people do exist can sometimes make all the difference in the world.
  • Donate Supplies – With so many animals making their way through our facility, we are in constant need of supplies to keep our day-to-day operations going smoothly. These items include bedding, puppy pads, canned dog food, dog toys, trash bags and more. Check out our ‘Wish List’ for more ideas of what you can donate.
  • Hold a Fundraising Event – We are fortunate to live in an area that is so incredibly supportive of our shelter, and many groups jump onboard to host fundraising events. If you are interested in holding a fundraiser through your group to benefit our shelter, please call us. We would love to talk to you!

The list of ways you can help goes on and on; we hope you will find a way to support our cause. And, again, we appreciate you asking ‘How Can I Help?” You’re already making a difference in the lives of animals who are depending on people just like you.
