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 501C3 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 serving 81 families in need. As we head in to 2019 medical expenses our mounting. We are truly appreciative of our volunteers and loyal supporters, but the battle isn't over yet!
We realize that there are a lot of people that would like to help, but they may not have extra cash to give. That is why we have partnered with a number of companies that are willing to support our efforts by re-purposing things that you do everyday! Here's how!
