At the beginning of last weekend, over 100 dogs were listed as available for adoption on the Orphans of the Storm® website. By the end of Clear the Shelters weekend, that number was below 50! Although a 100% cleared-out shelter is always the goal, over 50% in one weekend is amazing. There were also 32 cats adopted on Clear the Shelters day alone, and 58 total in the past week.
Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who worked through a hot and humid day to make sure so many dogs and cats found their forever homes. And an even bigger thank you to those who came to the shelter and left with a new furry family member! You can find some adorable family photos on the Orphans of the Storm® Facebook page.
Whether you adopted your pet from Orphans of the Storm® five days ago or five years ago, we would love to hear from you! If you would like to share your adoption success story, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read previous adoption stories on the Success Stories page.
Below are just a few photos from the event. There are many more on the Facebook page!
There are still plenty of dogs and cats at the shelter, ready and waiting to go to their forever home. If you weren’t able to make it to the event last weekend, come in any day of the week and meet them! Orphans of the Storm® is open daily from 11am-5pm, with extended hours on Thursday (11am-8pm). The animals hope to see you there soon!
