Orphans of the Storm® Dogs Ready to Clear the Shelter

If you’ve been wondering whether this summer is the right time to adopt a pet, the answer is yes! For the second year in a row, Orphans of the Storm® is participating in the national Clear the Shelters event on Saturday, July 23. Over 100 animals were adopted from Orphans of the Storm® at the event last year, and we’re hoping for even higher adoption numbers this year!

But, if any of the dogs profiled this week (or listed on the Dog Profiles page) have already caught your eye, don’t delay! The shelter is open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays and until 5 p.m. every other day of the week.

Pippa the one-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix is a true athlete. You’ll see her jumping up and down inside her kennel, and she even does that every once in a while when she’s on a walk! She’s a perfect candidate for agility. Pippa also seems to love water and was splashing her front legs around in the water bowl. So, if you have a pool or live near water, Pippa would fit right in with your activities!

Pippa was actually pretty calm when we were in the off-leash run. Every time I sat down on the bench, Pippa hopped up next to me and gave me doggy kisses. She would then sit or lay next to me while I pet her. She enjoyed following her nose and sometimes did a little digging in the gravel to see what she could unearth. Pippa can be a little bark-y inside her kennel, but she didn’t make a peep when we were outside. If you’re looking for a fun-loving girl to join your active family, come in soon to meet Pippa!

Splish-splash, Pippa’s taking a dip!

Daffodile the three-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix is a pretty girl with lots of energy. She makes a cute little noise when she’s excited, such as when she realizes it’s her turn to come out for a walk. We quickly made our way to the off-leash run, where Daffodile scampered around and explored. She watched me throw a tennis ball, but didn’t seem too interested in fetching it.

Daffodile can be a cuddler. After she had burned off her initial energy, she joined me on the bench, gave me a few doggy kisses, and attempted to climb into my lap. Daffodile would like to be the only pet in her new home. She’s a strong girl who could probably use a refresher on how to politely walk on a leash, but once she’s in a home where she gets regular exercise that shouldn’t be much of an issue. Stop by soon to say hi to Daffodile!

Jacob the five-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix is one of the best-behaved dogs I’ve walked recently. When I came to his kennel with the leash, he sat and stayed (without being told!) until the leash was put on. Then he walked very calmly, just a couple steps ahead of me. He would occasionally look up at me as if to check that he was doing a good job. Of course I told him what a good boy he is!

Jacob asks, “Are you ready for a doggy kiss?”

Jacob enjoyed a good scratch under the chin and behind his ears. It seems as though he might like other dogs, because every time we passed one he would start wagging his tail and want to say hello, though we never got close enough for an official greeting. Jacob already has some gray fur around his nose, but don’t let that deter you. He still has lots of companionship to offer! Be sure to say hi to Jacob on your next visit to the shelter.
