As most are still trying to put their lives together, the animal shelters are overwhelmed with displaced pets. They range from dogs, cats, and over 100 goats from Callaway, FL. They are looking for donations to care for all of these animals. It costs a lot of money to provide them food on a daily basis. The animals are scared and you can see it in their eyes. There have been over 200 cats and dogs abandoned by their owners. They may never meet again. Others have been sent to other shelters as far away as Orlando and have found new forever homes.
Sad stories of one man who had no way to care for his 19 year old Yorkie who was overheated in the back of his car was left in the care of Alaqua Animal Refuge. The shelter is in need of medical supplies and dog cages too. They need housing, love, and care to survive the next steps of their ordeal by no choice of their own.
Another couple who had lost everything brought their sick dog to Alaqua for shelter and care but their pet had to be euthanized. It was devastating to lose everything including their beloved family pet.
The shelter needs food, donations, and volunteers. If you can help, please do so at this website. https://www.alaqua.org
