Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Gateway Pet Guardians is a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal shelter whose passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers care for animals on the streets of East St. Louis, Illinois and surrounding areas. Our mission is to end homelessness for animals in the Metro East through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, community outreach and education. Our animals are strays who have been rescued from living on the streets of East St. Louis or who have come from the local animal control facility. Each animal has gone through a rigorous rehabilitation process that involves veterinary care, socialization and training.

About Our Rescue Group:

Our organization focuses heavily on community outreach and humane education in the East St. Louis area, providing low-cost or free veterinary care, dog food and shelter for low income residents with pets. We are dedicated to eliminating the homeless pet problem in our small service area.

Our Adoption Process:

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
