Giving Guardians Monthly Gift Program
Recurring Monthly Sponsorship Donations
Giving Guardians is a monthly donation program that allows you, our supporters, to sponsor a specific Gateway rescue on a monthly basis. At Gateway Pet Guardians, we believe that every animal is worth saving, no matter the time or effort needed for their rehabilitation. This program is for animals we rescue that, due to circumstances of their lives on the street, require intense rehabilitation and may be with the organization longer than our average rescue. Many of the older, feral dogs we rescue from East St. Louis will fall into this category.
With a small monthly donation, you will be saving dogs like Olivia, Aubrey and Sol. Help us reach our goal of no more homeless pets!
Dogs Available for Sponsorship
Meet Olivia: This beautiful pocket pittie was transferred from the euthanasia list from St. Clair County Animal Control. Upon rescue, it was determined that Olivia needed training. She was high energy and wasn’t getting along with other dogs. With further evaluation, Olivia was found to have signs of being trained to fight other dogs. In our area, this isn’t uncommon and we don’t think she was ever actually fought, however, we do believe her to be trained to react from a “scratch line” or starting position.

Meet Aubrey: Aubrey, an “owned” dog who, because she was allowed to roam, essentially became feral. A white shepherd mix, Aubrey looks formidable in size and personality in photos. Volunteers discovered Aubrey had her own pack, including Larry, Spice Kid, Buki, and a few other female dogs. Unlike Larry, however, Aubrey tended to hang back during the feedings, wary of humans. Aubrey’s rescue day finally came though on a chilly March morning. [Read more about Aubrey]
Meet Sol: A honey-colored shepherd mix with triangular floppy ears folded neatly forward, Sol bears the intense gaze of a shy dog. After rescue, it was clear she needed to learn from other dogs what it means to live outside of a shed. Since Sol missed out in her formative years on critical socialization—socialization to other dogs, people, cars, loud noises, nearly everything—she was more like a puppy than a four-year-old adult, and it will take time, patience, and love to help her grow.
