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.
Gateway Pet Guardians is currently a primarily foster-based animal rescue. That means all of our dogs and puppies are living in the posh comfort of a real, live foster home – which is how we’d like to keep it!
But it does come in handy to have a building to house the animals that are in the most need – those who are sick or injured – on a temporary basis until a foster family steps forward. It helps us as an organization rescue many more animals from the street. Now we have a wonderful space just over the river in St. Louis City where we can temporarily house our rescued pets until they are ready to go to their foster or forever homes.
