Shalimar, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/12/2013 -- ERA American Realty of Northwest Florida, Inc. has pledged to assist Alaqua Animal Refuge with their holiday fundraising efforts by matching donations of specific goods with $5 cash per item.
Alaqua Animal Refuge is based in Freeport – part of Walton County and a community served by American Realty.
Says ERA American’s Broker and Owner Gloria Frazier:
“We decided to do something a little different this holiday season to help out our “furry” friends and keep it fun! Alaqua Animal Refuge does a fantastic job of taking care of hundreds of animals (not just dogs—they have everything) and they function on private donations only.”
The mission of the local refuge states on their website:
“Alaqua Animal Refuge believes that every abused, neglected and homeless animal deserves a second chance. Our 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.”
As part of this commitment, American Realty is asking that donations of the following three items be turned in to one of their six office locations (see www.era-american.com/our-team/office-locations/): 55 Gallon Trash Bags; Pedigree Puppy canned food, ground style;
Pedigree Adult Dog canned food, ground style. However, while those are the items being specifically requested by the refuge, if persons wish to donate other unopened items for animals in need this holiday, American Realty will ensure they get to an organization can use them.
In terms of a “deadline”, the sooner the better but as Gloria adds:
“No item is too big or too small. We have capped the dollar donation at $500, so I fully expect to reach that goal, plus all the wonderful donations from our customers and the public. We will run this through Christmas (the animals don’t keep track of Christmas Day I’m told), so please get the word out.”
