Share the Shelter News - volunteers needed now and day of event.
We are recruiting volunteers for team captains, check in, registration, bartending, recycling, parking, security and merchandise sales. Volunteers will receive a t-shirt and are invited to work part of the day and sit back, relax and enjoy the music the rest of the day!
Be part of this second annual event where Alaqua Animal Refuge and Shelter House team up to raise awareness about the link between animal abuse and domestic violence. This daylong celebration of music and social change features musicians, food, artists and even a doggie play area. 100% of the profits from the event will go towards giving women, children and animals a second chance at life.
Please email for an event flyer or drop by the office to pick up posters that you can distribute to help us advertise.
Share the Shelter Music Festival takes place September 29 at Gulf Place.

Wow what a fun locals event!! Entertained all day and night by our local musicians. Love the Gulf Place venue. And the food vendors were awesome!!!
The weather was a little HOT with zero breeze - my only complaint. but it was tolerable mostly.
Very impressed with Shelter House & Alaqua's coordination and oversight of the whole event. They worked so hard and it was a big success. Michelle, Director of Shelter House, said that they are already planning for next year. Yay!!!
