Please call for questions or to set up surgery appointments. If you have donations of supplies or papers we are still accepting as staff will be at shelter during regular hours.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!
We want you to find the perfect pet for your family, and become their forever home! To make sure the adoption is a good match, our procedure is:
1. All family members must come & meet the pet to be adopted.
2. The new family signs a pre-adoption questionnaire & agreement.
3. There is a three-day waiting period while we review/verify the adoption agreement, references.
4. The pet is prepared for his/her new home: spayed or neutered (if not done already); updated on vaccinations including an "8-Way distemper shot, rabies and bordetella; Advantage flea prevention, Avid (micro-chipped).
DOGS are heartworm tested & stool checked, and wormed if needed.
CATS have a four-way vaccination, and if over 12 weeks rabies vaccinated, stool checked & wormed if needed, leukemia & combo tested.
To help defray these costs, there is an adoption fee for the adopted pets at our shelter.
ALL ANIMALS WILL BE ALTERED BEFORE LEAVING THE SHELTER.
Orphans of the Storm is located in Armstrong County. We were established in 1969 to provide temporary shelter for unwanted and abused animals. We match lovable animals with loving forever homes, educate the public on humane, responsible care of all animals, and promote spaying and neutering to reduce companion animal overpopulation.
Orphans of the Storm is a no-kill animal shelter. This means we euthanize an animal only if it is suffering with no hope to be cured, or if the animal is a danger to people or other animals.
