Ways to Donate
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.
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. [Read more about Olivia]
