All visitors will have the opportunity to meet the animals in the shelters, as well as engage with them in Orphans of the Storm’s Woodland Preserve (found at the Riverwoods location) a serene and authentic experience getting to know their potential new pet. Participants are encouraged to bring as many members of their family as possible, other pets included, to meet the shelter animals and find the best fit for their family.
