Butch’s Story

A few months ago, Butch was attacked by some dogs in his backyard. His family couldn’t afford the vet care needed, so the vet called GPG. We were very happy to step in and help this family using our East St. Louis Pet Crisis Fund. Butch is back to his happy self, demanding daily snuggles, chasing his tennis ball, and basking in the sun. He won’t let a missing ear get in the way of his…

Hank’s Story—A Happy Tail

There’s nothing quite like the love between a boy and his dog. This sentiment comes to life as you watch “Jay” and his dog Hank play together.  But what you can’t see that is their relationship is more than just playing fetch or tug-of-war.

Through our East St. Louis Pet Crisis Fund, we are able to help dogs like Rocky…

Why couldn’t families looking to adopt a dog…

PSOP is a senior center in Belleville, IL. They have regular dances for seniors (55+), providing a live band and lunches. When the puppies at…

Reducing Pet Overpopulation, One Spay at a Time

 

The numbers are in. In 2015, Gateway Pet Guardians’ Spay/Neuter Program sterilized 88 dogs and 97 cats for residents in the East St. Louis community. We sterilized 185 animals total, and helped 91 families in the process. We’ve spent years battling the overpopulation of stray and unwanted animals in East St. Louis, but our Spay/Neuter Program might be the ticket to truly ending…
