What do do if You Find an Animal,
or Must Give Up Your Pet
Orphans of the Storm is a no-kill shelter. This means we can only accept animals as other animals are adopted and sometimes are not able to take in more animals. If you must find a home for your pet, or if you have found a stray animal, please call us to see if we can help.
At certain times of the year (kitten season) we do not accept felines, however, you can add your name to a waiting list to get the animal in.
