At Alaqua, they have a special name for us long-termers. We’re older, but do not fret. We may have a few miles on us, but we’re not ready to be put out to pasture just yet!

The Purple Paw team is what they call our group. All grown up, well behaved, kind hearted, and trained where to poop.

With an approved application, the best part is we are free! Priceless is what they call us and of course we all agree.

You know us, as we have been “Pet of the Day” or “Pet of the Week.” We have been declared easy to care for and the staff thinks that we’re sweet.

We’ve all grown to call Alaqua our home. It is a great place to live, but what we really want is a place of our own.

But humans pass us by, wanting a puppy or a specific breed. They overlook our gentle spirits, our hearts full of love, and that we could be the best friend they will ever need!

Humans say, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” With us, “what you see is what you get,” you will discover.
