Help Alaqua Animal Refuge

photo2902My name is Egg and I’m a survivor just like my mother.

Ever since my mother was old enough to get pregnant, she was used for breeding. All she wanted was a safe, clean home where she would be loved.

That’s really all anyone wants, right?My siblings, Early and Easter, and I were born in a dirty house and lived in conditions so bad, I’ll spare you the details. My mother only wanted us to be safe. She prayed and prayed that someone would save us all and finally someone did.

Now we are living at Alaqua Animal Refuge in a clean place with lots of love and care. The doctor is treating our skin and ear infections and we will be here a while as we build our immune systems. After we are all spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccines, we will be able to find our forever homes. No one will ever be able to use us the way they used our mother. Please donate to Alaqua so they can continue to save families like ours. Thank you.
