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

Adoptable Dog in St. Louis – Meet Teriyaki

Dear Easter Bunny-
I know it’s unorthodox to write the Easter Bunny a letter asking for a specific present, but since you are a giant bunny that manages to sneak into houses to deliver eggs and chocolate, I thought you might be able to help a canine out.

My name is Teriyaki and this Easter I would really love a home to call my very own! I’m a very active dog (since I’m just 1-year…
