Our Goal


"To improve the quality of life for pets and their guardians in under-served communities with responsible pet ownership services to reduce over-population,keeping the family pet in the home, and building dog parks to strengthen the animal-human bond."

What we do

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization. We hope to create an off leash community dog park in the City of Gary. Why do we need a dog park? A dog park offers a safe secure environment where dogs and their pet parents can exercise, and socialize with other pet enthusiasts. In addition, it helps to reduce excessive, barking,digging and other negative behaviors. All of these behaviors often times are the root cause of dogs being displaced.   Exercise in a dog park can also help to reduce canine obesity. Dogs are pack animals by nature.  They look forward to being in environment where they can be.....a dog!  Run, play, sniff, mark their territory and establish their position in the pack!

The best way to address many issues in our city regarding pets, is to use the dog park as a platform to bring much needed services to our community. That way we can begin an aggressive approach to correcting some of the issues, and people can begin enjoying pet ownership as it should be. 

In addition, our dog park will be the "Goto" place for Gary residents to get information about pet related events, workshops and services available in the community.

Our Mission

"To assist seniors, veterans, dis-advantaged families, and disabled persons with low cost vaccinations, spay/neuter clinics, canine education, pet nutrition, and responsible pet ownership services to help reduce over-population and keep the family pet in the home. In addition to providing a safe and secure pet specific space where pet parents can exercise and socialize. "
