 Lucy is both house trained and crate trained. She loves her…

Given to fly

Sometimes a person touches more hearts than they are ever aware of.  Sometimes their legacy lives beyond them and they impact people and animals they have never met.  This is Kimberly Schaefer.  And, this is her story from a small rescue’s perspective and the outpouring of support we have witnessed for this amazing woman.

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
To my heart I must be true
Nothing left, nothing left for me to do
It’s a home that I want
Oo,Oo,Oo honey
It’s a home that I want
