|Alaqua spends over $50,000 a month in operational|
costs which is raised from donations and
fund raisers like the one we attended.
Alaqua Animal Refuge is not just about neglected animals sadly housed in a smelly concrete shelter waiting out their days until a prospective good home comes by to adopt them. In sharp contrast, the refuge sits on a scenic 10-acre farm where cats are housed in attractive buildings providing breezy screened in porches with sunny perches, horses and ponies graze in lush pastures, dogs have spacious outdoor runs, and the barns look like they belong in Kentucky.
|Cats waiting for adoption lounge comfortably in this spacious facility where they are|
able to nap in the sun or under a cooling fan or air conditioner.
|The Florida "Cracker" style house is where the kittens are housed. |
In order to avoid temptation, we did not go inside.
