Orphans of the Storm® was founded in 1928 and has been saving homeless pets ever since. Located in Riverwoods, IL, just north of Chicago, you will find over 100 dogs (and over 300 cats) eagerly awaiting their new forever home. Orphans of the Storm® is a no-kill facility; a dog or cat will have a place at the shelter until they find their new home.
The adoption fee for a dog is $90 and includes the first inoculations, a general worming, a kennel cough preventative, a flea and tick treatment, a collar, a leash, and a tag. The dog will be spayed/neutered (if s/he is not already) at no expense to you at the Orphans of the Storm® animal hospital before going home with you.
When visiting the shelter, please bring as many family members (including other pets) with you as possible. Since our dogs are looking for a forever home, it’s important to make sure everyone gets along.
Please take your time walking through the three wings of kennels and read the information card found on the front of each kennel to learn more about the dogs available for adoption. Orphans of the Storm® has a grassy area with tables and benches for you to walk any dog you’re interested in, as well as two fenced-in runs where you can get to know the dog off-leash. Keep in mind that these dogs spend most of their day inside their kennel and will need to run off some energy before settling down and socializing with you. Relax on the bench inside the run and watch your dog explore.
