Adopt a Pet in St. Louis from Gateway Pet Guardians


onsidering adoption? Good choice!  When you adopt a pet, you save lives.  Two lives actually, the pet you take home and the space now available to help the next pet in need of help. 

Gateway Pet Guardians has more than 100 adoptable dogs and cats at any given time and all of our cats and the majority of our dogs reside in foster homes while they wait to be adopted.  And our dogs in our shelter often get go on Slumber Pawties with volunteers too!  What’s cool about that is we get to know a ton of great information about our pets in a home setting!  

If you find a dog or cat that you are interested in adopting, please read our adoption policy carefully and submit your adoption application.  We will be in contact with you within 48 hours.

Please note that our Emergency Shelter is not open to the public and the majority of our adoptable pets are in individual foster homes.  We do not allow walk-ins at our shelter. If you would like to meet an adoptable pet, please start by submitting an adoption application.
