"To improve the quality of life for pets and their guardians in under-served communities with affordable 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 work with pet guardians to provide affordable low-cost responsible pet services such as: Spay/Neuter, Vaccinations and Micro-chipping, pet food assistance, and Trap, Neuter, and Release (TNR). We are the new face to a traditional rescue as we DO NOT accept lost,or sick animals. Our goal is to help the pet parent with services and programs to prevent displacing a family pet. If there is no other solution for a pet we have partnered with Adopt-A-Pet & The Petco Foundation's ReHome service to assist them.
The Gary Pet Food Pantry has been successful in supporting qualified low-income residents with dog food,cat food, cat litter, spay/neuter services and when funds are available emergency medical assistance for Lake County, Indiana residents. For all that we do, there is so much more help needed for the animals in our community. Our impact can be greater with your help.
As we continue to strive to establish an off-leash community dog park in the City of Gary, our outreach to help as many struggling pet families never cease. There are so many ways that you can help. Be a foster parent for a pet in need, walk a few miles a day, or shop with one of our preferred partners to support our spay/neuter program for street cats. Spread the word or volunteer for our animal related events.
We appreciate the support from the community that we serve, and we will continue to do all that we can for the animals in need!
