Lake County Animal Control & Adoption Center

Crown Point, IN 46307
Phone: 219-769-7016,shelter-0102.article

Post-Tribune January 2, 2010

"Depending on the circumstances, shelters can even help struggling owners with vaccinations and other medical services at no cost or at a discount for their pets.

""We have veterinarians with very big hearts," said Matt Lubarski, director of the Lake County Animal Control and Adoption Center.

"The center in Crown Point has been providing assistance to those in financial need for years, he said.

"Both shelters say the volunteers and donations from the community throughout the year make it possible for them to offer help to pet owners in difficult times.

"Currently about a dozen Lake County residents, including one who was recently laid off, are taking advantage of the free food supply, Lubarski said.

"In order to qualify for free supplies, pet owners will be asked to show forms which may include proof of unemployment.

"Lubarski reminds struggling pet owners to seek help if they can't provide for their pets.

""We'll do whatever we can to help," Lubarski said. "We're all about the animals.""

Precious Purrs and Paws
3310 E. 10th St., No. 215
Jeffersonville, IN, 47130.

News and August 10 and August 13, 2010

Pet Pantry to assist pets, owners

"Precious Purrs and Paws Pet Pantry Inc., a newly formed nonprofit group in Jeffersonville, will offer aid to individuals, who find themselves in need of assistance to provide the appropriate and necessary care for their pet.

"The pantry will begin accepting applications for a variety of types of aid effective Sept. 1. Funding to assist pets in need will come from public donations as well as the pantry’s upcoming events
, such as “Dogs Gone Wild” and a pet and owner scavenger hunt slated for November called, “Rover’s Road Rally.”

"Purrs and Paws also will participate in many community festivals and events. To donate to help those in need, mail donations to Precious Purrs and Paws, 3310 E. 10th St., No. 215, Jeffersonville, IN, 47130.

"Visit the Web site at or contact the pantry at 502-396-0414 for more information."

"Thus, the dawn of a new nonprofit in town — Precious Purrs and Paws Pet Pantry Inc. The VanGilders are hoping to grow the new organization into an agency that can help residents cover the costs of owning a pet.

"Veterinary care, vaccines, preventative treatments for fleas and ticks, even food, are among the things the two are trying to help fund. Monthly events — such as scavenger hunts, dog-kissing contests, longest-tail contests and holiday themed parties for Halloween and Christmas — are planned to raise money.

"Those needing the assistance would fill out an application, VanGilder would meet with them and the pet, look at veterinary records and work with the veterinarian to provide money for the care.

" is up and running. Applications will be available there after Sept. 1. She said the group’s primary focus will be Clark County, but they’re willing to accept applications from anywhere."

Precious Purrs & Paws Pet Pantry will begin accepting applications for assistance beginning September 1, 2010.  Please check back then for an application, or call 502-396-0414 to have one mailed to you.
