Gateway Pet Guardians Needs Your Help:

Gateway Pet Guardians is one of the many animal rescue groups in St. Louis that will benefit from the money raised at the Strut Your Mutt festival on September 28 at Tilles Park in St. Louis County.

Gateway Pet Guardians really needs the money. After saving over 200 dogs this year, we are still trying to pay off our vet bills. We even had to go on a short rescue hiatus until we raised some money. We are back to rescuing the strays of East St. Louis again, but are closely checking our bank account before each rescue to make sure we have the funds to pay for the dogs care.

We’ve got 3 litters of 3 week old puppies and their mommas on the streets that we’ll be picking up soon. That’s a lot of dogs to get spayed, neutered and immunized all at once.

Please consider attending this fun event or making a donation by signing up to be part of the Gateway Pack at Strut Your Mutt even if you can’t go.
