How to help
Gateway Pet Guardians is a foster-based organization, which means all of the rescued animals live in temporary homes until adoption. The nonprofit provides veterinarian care, supplies and support, and volunteers are needed to foster the animals.
In addition to fostering, individuals can help by fundraising and volunteering at the shelter and at adoption events. Visit gatewaypets.com/volunteer to learn about all of the opportunities available.
The nonprofit also accepts monetary donations online at gatewaypets.com/donate-now.
For more information, visit gatewaypets.com or send an email to email@example.com.
The shelter is located at 5321 Manchester Ave., St. Louis, Missouri 63110.
