Harry T’s at HarborWalk in Destin has a drink on their menu that gives back to Alaqua Animal Refuge. Pooch Hooch is the perfect beach drink and is most enjoyed sitting on the porch at Harry T’s right on the harbor. After 15 months of collecting one dollar for every Pooch Hooch sold, Harry T’s had a check for Alaqua in the amount of $3,403. Owners Dan and Liz Empson have such a giving spirit and have made a huge difference in the lives of many animals. Alaqua is grateful for this donation and all donations from Harry T’s in the future.

Alaqua Animal Refuge believes that every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance. The private, nonprofit animal sanctuary is committed to serving the Emerald Coast 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.
