Our mission is clear
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.
A journey of hope
Many of the animals at Orphans of the Storm come from rural Tennessee, where they have very lax spay and neuter laws, resulting in an enormous over-population of abandoned, feral animals. Thanks to our partnerships with shelters in Tennessee, we are able to bring these wonderful, adoptable animals to the Chicago area, saving them from euthanasia and finding them happy forever homes.
