Fabulous Pet Events


Every year Cause 4Paws Gary,INC. hosts a number of educational,informational, and interactive events for pets and their guardians.     We  continue to strive to raise the bar each year to fill the void of affordable services to our community.   We are proud to have earned the support of the following corporate sponsors that support our efforts to improve the lives of pets and their guardians.  



Pet Food Pantry    We are tickled PINK to have the support of RED ROVER to start a pet food pantry for Gary residents.  Their motto "Bringing Animals from Crisis to Care"  is in line with our goal to fill a void for pets in our community. While we are still looking for a permanent home for our pantry we will be hosting pet food assistance events in each district throughout the City.  Gary residents are encouraged to apply for assistance through our online application for faster service.  We will have staff available to assist residents with a paper application on site if needed.  



Neuter Scooter  Our partnership with the mobile cat spay/neuter clinic proved to be extremely fruitful in 2017.  It is a convenient low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination service for domestic and feral cats provided by Dr. Peavy and her amazing crew. We are so delighted to have this clinic return to the City of Gary after a 10 year absence.  Her impact has been felt in the community to assist us in our efforts to reduce pet overpopulation in  our city.    Pre-registration is required.  NEUTER SCOOTER .  Participation is opened to all domestic and feral cat owners.  However, financial assistance from Cause 4Paws Gary, INC is limited to Gary residents.  ASSISTANCE
