Meet Cozumel and Giselle
Sisters saved from the streets. 

A few short months ago, Gateway Pet Guardians rescued Cozumel (tan) and Giselle (brindle). In the time at their foster home, both these girls have come to show personalities quite unlike one another.

Sol – Into The Light

As much as Gateway Pet Guardians volunteers don’t want to see male and female street dogs reproducing—adding to the overpopulation of stray and feral dogs in East St. Louis—they take comfort in the bonds many of the dogs form.  Given how many challenges the street dogs face, it’s heartening to imagine that they have company, maintaining social ties as dogs are wont to do.


Adoptable Dog in St. Louis – Meet Olivia!

“I got chills, they’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause I heard, you might be applying
It’s electrifying!
You better hurry up, ’cause I need a home
And my heart is set on you
You better show up, you better bring a bone

Nothing left, nothing left for me to do

Oo,Oo,Oo honey
It’s a home that I want

Hi!  I’m Boone and I love you!

You may not know this, but I’m kind of a big deal and I could be the perfect dog for you!  I love everybody that that I meet and I will snuggle you for hours.  People tell me I’m a big dog, but I don’t know what they are talking about.  I’m a lap dog!  I love my foster sisters and I even let them win at tug of war (Shhhh!  Don’t tell them!).
