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 at the Gary Public Safety Building. Gary residents are encouraged to apply for assistance through our online application for faster service. We will have volunteers available to assist residents with a paper application on site if needed. You must bring your proof of assistance with you, as well as vet records(booklets NOT accepted) for each pet requiring supplies.
Due to the recent outbreak and State Mandated shut down we have had to adjust how the pantry operates to keep residents and our volunteers safe.
The Gary Pet Food Pantry is a mobile pantry. Products are loaded each month in a van in accordance with the number of residents that have pre-registered each month for supplies to be distributed. Due to the outbreak of the virus we will no longer accept walk-up applications supplies will only be distributed to pre-registered participants.
Thanks to The Legacy Foundation, Bixbi Pet Care, and The Feline Community Network, the Cause 4Paws Gary Pet Food pantry can now service all Lake County, Indiana residents that have been impacted by the recent pandemic. COVID-19 has changed the dynamic of how we function and interact with each other in America. For safety reasons, please DO NOT attend the pet food pantries if you are feeling ill. If you have registered for an upcoming pantry and are unable to attend. please notify us the a day prior to the pantry so that those supplies can be allocated to another participant in need.
Miles for Meows Fundraiser
We are hosting our first fundraiser of the season for street cats (feral,community or cat colonies). Cause 4Paws Gary has been selected to participate in a matching grant program to help curb the stray cat population in under-served communities like Gary. Our goal is to raise $1000.00 by asking participants to walk 10 miles for $10.00. When we hit our goal, those dollars will be matched which will allow us to save 50 street cats with life saving spay/neuter surgeries. We hope that you will support our efforts to help the strays in our community.
