Welcome to Orphans of the Storm Strut your Mutt Team Page! We are so grateful and excited to be part of this year's virtual walk and fundraising event, thanks to our partners at Best Friends Animal Society!
Orphans of the Storm Animal shelter is 501c3 oranization dedicated helping save animals in the Northern Illinois area and beyond. We are in our 93rd year, and our mission has always remained the same: "To take responsibility for each and every orphaned, abandoned, abused or neglected dog and cat which reaches our doors; to take them in and shelter them; to provide the best medical and physical care possible for them; to nurture them back to health if need be; and finally to place them into warm, loving, adoptive homes where they can enjoy the lives they deserve."
Last year, we saved over 2100 dogs and cats, including over 200 senior adoptions and also reduced the average stay for dogs by 80%, and cats by 50%. The team here at Orphans of the Storm is made up of volunteers, staff, management, coalitions, transport coordinators, local county animal care & control and the general public. It doesn’t matter where an animal is from. When they get here they are welcome. These are the community’s animals and we are here to help whenever and however we can.
When COVID-19 hit, our shelter faced many challenges, one including having to cancel our largest fundraiser of the year- our Annual Benefit Dinner. To offset that loss, we need your help! Every dollar raised will go towards saving more animals, providing them with the medical care they need, enriching their lives while they're with us, finding them their perfect homes, and continuing to support them even after adoption.
