Orphans of the Storm: “Adopt a Friend for Life”

Orphans of the Storm Animal Shelter is 501c3 organization dedicated to 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.
