Clear the Shelters 2018 was another great event for Orphans of the Storm®! 34 dogs and 25 cats went to their new happy homes. NBC 5 Chicago’s LeeAnn Trotter was there for several hours, meeting dogs and interviewing adopters. You can see one of her clips here. Below are just a few behind-the-scenes images from before the gates opened on Saturday morning, but you can see the full Orphans of the Storm® Clear the Shelters photo album on Facebook.

This year, several dogs were marked as “Volunteer Favorites” and got a gold star

All of the dogs got either a bandana, a flower, or a bowtie to look their extra-best

The NBC van was there to capture all the excitement

While waiting for potential adopters, I also spent some time with Bella, Big Boy and Mojo, Cass and Crowley, Hobbs, Jack, Nash, Oliver, Quinn, and Sullivan (who showed off his affectionate side when he joined me on the bench, covered my face in doggy kisses, and then laid down in my lap). If you couldn’t make it in last weekend, there are still plenty of dogs who would be so happy to meet you this weekend!
