Orphans of the Storm presents the
Happy Halloween Pooch Parade!

This year our annual 2-mile charity dog walk, the Pooch Parade moves to October and invites all dogs and their people to dress for the occassion. On October 18 all dog lovers and their furry friends are invited to walk in support of the shelter's life-saving mission.

Entrance fee is a $25 donation per dog to join in the fun. Or you may create your own fundraising page right here. Set your goal and share your fundraising effort with your friends and family. Collect $100 and you walk for free and you earn cool stuff the day of the walk! Including your own 2014 Orphans Pooch Parade t-shirt! But why stop at $100? Let's see how successful each walker can be because every dollar will directly benefit the stray and abandoned dogs and cats that continually arrive from throughout Lake and northern Cook counties.

So let's get a move on. The animals are depending on you.
