In its genesis, Silverstray was a visionary venture conceived to assist animal shelters and rescues in navigating the complexities of social media, promotion, and marketing. Kelly Carey, the founder, recognized the power of awareness in driving adoptions and sought to leverage her skills to make a difference. The motto, "Awareness Equals Adoptions," encapsulated the ethos of the early days.
This initial inspiration, however, evolved into something far more profound. The core idea of Silverstray, rooted in its exceptional ability to garner visibility, laid the foundation for a transformative journey. Realizing that the impact could extend beyond helping shelters with pet adoptions, Silverstray pivoted to become a provider of crucial services.
Now, Silverstray is not just about finding homes for animals; it's about transforming communities. The introduction of clinics offering essential services, from spaying/neutering to vaccinations, exemplifies this evolution. The initial vision was like a seed, and the commitment to leveraging visibility became the soil for a silver lining in the Gary, Indiana community.
Silverstray's role is no longer confined to aiding shelters; it's become a catalyst for change in Gary. The organization leverages the community's deep love for animals, coupling it with its unique visibility, to bridge people to essential services. The focus has shifted from being a social media consultant to being a force for creating a culture of caring in Gary.
Through events and initiatives, Silverstray not only bolsters resources and compassion but also fosters lateral community engagement, building strong neighborly bonds.
