Robert C Gain Jr.

Board trustee

Bob Gain, managing director for BlackRock’s U.S. & Canada Defined Contribution Group, grew up in a household that always had two dogs and three cats. While keeping five pets wasn’t practical when he moved out on his own, in 2000 he adopted Parker, a loving yellow Labrador retriever with an irrepressible zest for life. Parker was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2009 and ultimately lost her battle with cancer shortly thereafter; losing his beloved pup broke his heart. For Bob, Parker was his inspiration for finding out about, and getting involved with, Morris Animal Foundation. “People want their pets to live longer and we want to help pets do just that.”
