Hi! My name is Michelle Robinson. I am the proprietor of Clean Paws Mobile Grooming Salon and the Founder of Cause 4Paws Gary, INC. Thanks to the support and generosity of our supporters in 2016 we were able to obtain our 501(c)3) status. After four years of searching & planning, we have our eyes on a site in Gary. We are waiting for the City's approval for the lease agreement. We continue our work to make Gary a pet-friendly city and support many low-income residents with affordable pet services. In 2017 we were able to save 244 cats and 13 dogs. 2018 132 cats and 70 dogs. We launched The Gary Pet Food Pantry in February 2018 with one small grant. To date, our pet food pantry has distributed over 128,000 pounds of pet supplies to low-income pet parents in Lake County, Indiana.  Cause 4Paws Gary is an all-volunteer organization serving the community where we work and live.

We appreciate everyone that supports Cause 4Paws Gary! Corporate employees can add our name to their matching giving programs with your HR Department. Most corporations will match watch you give dollar for dollar.
