Alaqua Animal Refuge believes that every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance. Our private, nonprofit animal sanctuary is committed to serving the Southeast as: the premier no-kill refuge, providing protection, shelter and care to animals in need; a full-service animal adoption center; and a peaceful, proactive animal welfare advocate through educational outreach and community programs.
Applicants are required to visit Alaqua and meet the animal they wish to adopt. Please schedule your “meet and greet” appointment with our adoption team by emailing us at [email protected] or calling us at 850-880-6399. Be at least 21 years of age. If not, your parent or guardian must submit this form as the primary adopter who will assume the responsibility and liability for the pet. Have the consent of all adults living in the household. Provide a veterinary reference or proof of current vaccines for any pets and/or any pets you have had in the past 3 years. (Dog adoptions require proof of annual heartworm testing and proof of monthly prevention.). All current animals in your home must be spayed or neutered. Own your own home, or have the landlord’s consent to have a pet. A copy of your Driver’s License or Picture I.D. will be required at the time of the adoption. If you rent, you may be required to present a copy of your lease. Once approved, you will have 48 hours in which to pick up your pet. (If you are unable to pick the pet up within 48 hours, an additional boarding fee of $25 per day will be applied and will be applied to a credit card which you will provide at the time of approval. The pet will only be held until the weekend following your approval. After that time it will be returned to the adoptable pool of animals.). We do allow out-of-area adoptions. However, we require the adopters to visit Alaqua to meet the pet and take him/her home. If, on arrival, the pet is not a good match for the adopter, the adopter may choose from our other available pets.

Finding the perfect home for each animal brought into the shelter is not only our job but our passion. Dogs, cats, and livestock that are obtained by Walton County Animal Control are taken to the animal shelter to be held until they are reunited with their families or adopted by a new family if no one claims them as a lost pet. Families have seven days to claim their lost pets.
