Make a Difference

How to Help

Whether you have some extra time on the weekends to walk dogs or want to host a fundraiser to support homeless pets, there’s dozens of things you can do to make a huge difference to an animal in need.

Become a Volunteer

From walking dogs at the shelter, to transporting animals, to assisting with events; our volunteers are the lifeblood of Gateway Pet Guardians. Learn more about our Volunteer Program and join the Gateway Pet Guardians Volunteer Team today!

Become a Foster

Opening your home to an adoptable pet while it awaits its forever home is such a rewarding experience. Learn more about our Foster Program and join our team–we need your help to save the lives of homeless pets in our community!

Save a Life

Gateway Pet Guardians has more than 100 adoptable dogs and cats at any given time, just waiting to find their new home! Our Adoption Program is designed to support you, as an adopter–we are here to support your new pet’s transition from “homeless” pet to owned pet!

Host an Event

We love showing off our awesome pets for adoption. Animals have a natural talent to help de-stress workers or students during exams or simply to make kids smile. They often help drive traffic to your events too! Learn more about how your next event can feature some special guests!
