American Pets Alive Hosts Gateway Pet Guardians for Webinar on Community Programming

On Wednesday, May 27th at 7 pm CST, Gateway Pet Guardians was invited to present in a webinar titled “Keeping Families Together: Pivoting Community Programming to Support People & Pets During COVID-19.”

“Gateway Pet Guardians has spent years working with low income families in the Metro East St. Louis area, providing supplies and services to families with pets. Community programming has been put in place to help families access these resources, overcoming obstacles such as affordability and access. Now, more than ever, low income families in communities all over the United States can use the support of animal welfare organizations due to the rippling effects of COVID-19. As we wade through these uncharted waters, we must consider how to modify existing programming and create new programming to help families care for their pets despite recent economic impacts. This webinar will focus on ways rescues, shelters, and animal welfare agencies can provide support to families experiencing hardship, with the goal of keeping pets out of the shelter system and in their homes with families that love them.”
