Pets at Our Rescue Group:
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.
