It has been said for many years that “dog is a man’s best friend”. We completely agree. You will never find a creature in the world that loves as unconditionally as a dog. Dogs keep us young when we want to be young, keep us company as we grow old, and they live to make our lives more joyous and meaningful.
“Until one has loved a dog a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”
- Anatole France
The Hunks and Hounds calendar was created to benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge. Alaqua Animal Refuge is the premier no-kill animal shelter in Northwest Florida. Since Alaqua’s inception in 2007, the refuge has placed over 10,000 animals of all kinds into homes. Alaqua has grown to become a recognized leader in animal welfare and animal cruelty prevention.
It costs over $55,000 each month to operate Alaqua Animal Refuge. We rely on fundraising and private donations to meet that ever-growing number. This calendar will give us the opportunity to raise the much-needed operating funds so we can continue to give animals shelter, safety, and second chances.
