Cause 4Paws Gary; INC launched the Gary Pet Food Pantry in February 2018 to reach the most vulnerable citizens in Gary, Indiana with no voice. The number of sick, injured and stray animals in the city was overwhelming. So much so, that the surrounding shelters could not keep up with the intake numbers.
Desperate times take their toll on the animals first. If a family is struggling to feed themselves and keep a roof over their head, how could they afford the staggering cost of spay/neuter/vaccinations or a severe medical issue? For some, having a pet helps to reduce the angst of both medical and mental health issues. Animals do not judge you. They love you whether you are Prince or a Pauper, but they do need care.
Your support and donations are crucial to the Gary Pet Food Pantry have helped us provide 81 low-income families with pet food and veterinarian support.
The funds raised in the Fund the Shelter Challenge will help extend our services to more Lake County residents to eliminating the suffering and torment that animals experience due to hunger and non-treatment.
