What’s on Your Mind?

A letter from GPG President Julia Mittelstadt

I’ve been thinking about the dogs and cats we have saved over the last year.  What an amazing feat.

Currently, we have Niles.  Niles was found badly beaten up by other dogs.  It was touch and go at first … we were not sure he would make it.  Our friends at Hillside Animal Hospital did everything they could.  At their recommendation, w…

Blondie’s Butt Bootcamp, Kitties, The Crew, and Super Savvy

2 minutes with Savvy.  Super pregnant and about ready to burst!  But A wonderful Ms. U was able to get her that evening and now Savvy is being super spoiled and will be giving birth anyday now.  She was too far along to get spayed.  Horton is the father of these puppies.  We are going to need fosters and forever homes when the kids are about 8 weeks old.  Savvy and GPG are both very…

What’s on your Mind?

A letter from GPG Volunteer Coordinator Melissa Stiles

I joined Gateway Pet Guardians just over two years ago. I started out as a puppy foster, began attending events, meeting new people, and learning more about GPG. I fell in love with the entire group. Since the beginning, I knew I wanted to give more to the group, but wasn’t sure what I could do or where I would fit. GPG suddenly found…

Darlin’ Darren & Alice gets a few days in the Sun

Above we have Darren. He is a little guy that GPG had seen just a couple of times on the route, pretty dirty! We were trying to “track” him, but he was pretty timid here. One day the opportunity presented itself, and Pj was able to snag him. Now he is getting medical treatment, which involves an eye surgery-but shortly he will be ready to find his forever home.

Meet Alice Cooper

These videos are a collage of our recent visits with Alice Cooper. She is a doll. She lives at a business in East St. Louis and GPG & SuperSheri make sure that she gets doggie treats, food, and some love on the route.

It has been a crazy time at GPG!! We have rescued over 40 dogs in the last 2 months, which means 40 canine lives and at least the 40 people lives that the dogs will save. But what else? Well, we got our Vet Bill. We don’t just have an “ordinary” vet bill. No, because that would mean we have just “ordinary” dogs. We have very special dogs with all the bells and whistles. Dogs treated for heartworm, embedded collars, and everything else under the sun. Eyeball surgeries…..Yes, a recent little “Darren” needs to have an eye removed.

Lots of puppy videos!

We have had a lot of rescues lately!! But of course we still need more fosters to get more of these kids before the frigid cold comes. We want to thank everyone for making our gala a wonderful event and thank you to Purina for our great new car!! Lots of videos for holiday viewing. Maybe you will see someone you would like to include in your family.

We had rescued Womba, but she was so fearfu…

There are lots of selfless reasons to foster a dog or cat; You help a poor, homeless animal who may be barely surviving on the streets, braving the elements, parasites, other dangerous…
