The 2nd Annual Paws In The Park will benefit the Speedway Animal Shelter, sponsored by Indiana Memorial and Homeward Bound. Bring your four legged friends and come enjoy the activities. This event will take place on September 28, 2013 from 10 am until 4 pm at Leonard Park in Speedway, Indiana.
Catching a Gary SouthShore RailCats game Saturday, August 31, will help a lot of cats and dogs in the Region. Project Pound member Deena Klebs says they're holding a fundraiser at the game, also selling t-shirts and holding a silent auction. Tickets for the game are $10 each, and a portion goes to Project Pound. Klebs says project pound was founded earlier this year after a pair of local business owners saw the state of the Gary shelter. Kleb says they started with Gary, and they hope to help other shelters, too, making it safe and comfortable for animals until they're fostered or adopted. To purchase tickets call Deena at 219.306.2428 or visit their Facebook page before the 31st.
