Welcome to your community page!

The contest is off to an amazing start with over 300 communities nominated in the first 24 hours! This community page will serve as your contest hub for voting, photos, events and even important notifications from the PetSafe team. We'll constantly be working on the site throughout the contest to make sure it's a smooth nominating and voting process for you. Also, please note that the vote counter can take anywhere from 5-15 min to update depending on site traffic, which is why you may not always see the vote counter increase each time you vote. Don’t worry, it will but may just take a few minutes. Thanks for participating and best of luck to your community!

We need SUPPORT! It only costs a couple minutes to vote. Let's get behind this! Post on your wall and ask your fiends to support this! We can do this. You can help!!!!

Gloria, You are right! That is why I am working hard to bring this to our city. It can not be done alone! The First Annual Cause 4Paws Gary Dog Walk/Run was a launching pad! Please vote and share this info! We deserve better, but WE have to support!

Gary Indiana is viewed as a declining city in the rust belt of the United States. There are a lot of very wonderful people in this community who care intensely for their pets. While our tax base makes us put the needs of the human population first, we care about the pets who are members of our families also, but as a city we cannot afford the luxury that other communities see as part of their normal amenities and our pets suffer because of it. this park would be a great plus for our community.
