The Campaign for Alaqua Animal Refuge

The Campaign for Alaqua Animal Refuge is a multi-million dollar fundraising initiative that serves as the foundation for Alaqua’s relocation and expansion. Alaqua’s new home will redefine sanctuary for animals and people alike, and will represent a renewal of life, a restored hope, and a second chance for all.

The Campaign will provide critical funding for the construction of buildings and facilities ensuring long-term financial stability and growth, while achieving our goals and furthering our mission.

Reminiscent of a small community,  Alaqua’s new home has been meticulously designed and carefully concepted to reflect our mission and core values by keeping streamlined animal care, public outreach, educational programs, and visitor engagement in the foreground.

Our new home will provide a safe shelter and loving environment to accommodate larger numbers of all types of animals in need of medical care and treatment (including wildlife in the future); bring people together in a common space for the community to share, learn and grow; educate residents, visitors, and tourists about the plight of abused, neglected, and homeless animals; and offer concrete steps as to what we as a society can do to help remedy these issues.

Serving as both a shelter and a sanctuary, and keeping in alignment with its overall vision, Alaqua will continue its commitment to these focus areas:  Rescue, Rehabilitation, Adoption, Education, and Training.

Now is the time for us to push above and beyond the limits of our current footprint. The Campaign for Alaqua Animal Refuge is a game-changer for our future and will help us transform the shape of animal shelters and sanctuaries around the globe.
