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. Please see our guidelines before
