Feline Frenzy: Life of a Kitten Foster

Gateway Pet Guardians has traditionally been centered around the rescue of dogs. But recently, we have seen an increase in the number of cats making their way through our rescue. But to rescue cats, we need special fosters that are willing to open their home to them. Beth Steele is one of those special fosters.

On July 15, 2016, we made a plea for someone to step up and help us rescue four…

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound Dog: Jennifer, August and Due’s Story

Life with a hound dog is always exciting. Our boy Due promises this to be true! Due came to us as an owner surrender because his owner was moving and couldn’t take him and his sister, Emily, with him. Emily was adopted shortly after, but Due spent some time at the Emergency Shelter, waiting for an angel to come along and show him the good life.

Jennifer McClung learned that Due needed a plac…

The Gateway Pet Guardians Community Outreach Program began in January 2013 as a response to bitter cold temperatures and dogs left outside in the elements. Since its inception, it has grown into a program with dozens of volunteers that spend their weekends in the community, helping residents improve the lives of their family pets. By arming community members with doghouses, tie-outs, bowls,…

The Goofiest Grin: Sara and Fawn’s Story

Fostering has many joys, but at times, it can leave a giant hole in your heart that will never be replaced. Some animals come into our lives but are not able to find their happily ever afters. They are taken from us too soon. This is Fawn’s story.

On June 10, Fawn was removed from horrid living conditions and brought into St. Clair County Animal Control. After almost a month, she was…
