Join our MOVEment to East St. Louis!
Gateway Pet Guardians will turn the former Miles D. Davis school into a community resource center to bring much needed animal services to the area. We are entering the community to make life better for pets and the people who love them.
Imagine waking up and having to choose between food for your pet or food for yourself. How about having the money to pay for your pet food, but no transportation to get you to the nearest pet supply store? This is the reality for many residents in East St louis and surrounding areas. At Gateway Pet Guardians, we strive to eliminate decisions like this by providing the resources necessary to care for pets, so residents can better care for both themselves and their animals.
East St Louis is what we call a ‘resource desert’, with no veterinary clinics and few pet supply/grocery stores available to obtain pet food. Even if residents are financially able to care for their pets, there are few resources within the community on which they can rely.
