End of Life Support

The end-of-life experience can be a difficult period for pet owners. Our pets devote their lives to us–making us smile and laugh every day. The thought of losing a pet–a family member–can be devastating. Whether a pet approaches their golden years, experiences sudden trauma, or is diagnosed with a terminal illness–we are there for pet owners through this difficult period.

At Gateway Pet Guardians, we believe everyone deserves the love of an animal. And with that, everyone deserves the opportunity to say good-bye with compassion and dignity. Through our Pet Crisis Fund, we are able to address barriers that exist for many families we work with–especially transportation and cost–by providing end-of-life services at our partner full-service veterinary clinics.

The Pet Crisis Fund, which may assist pet owners through the end-of-life experience, is available to residents in zip codes 62201, 62203, 62204, 62205, 62206, and 62207 only. If you live within this service area and wish to receive assistance, call (618) 687-8007 ext. 4.
