Welcome to Gateway 4 Paws! We are a non-profit canine rescue serving the St. Louis, MO and surrounding area. We are an all volunteer, foster based non-profit organization with all proceeds going directly to the care of the animals. Our mission is to rescue highly adoptable small breed dogs from high kill shelters, both locally and nationwide. Many very adoptable small breed dogs are available in California, Miami, and Manhattan, and are euthanized due to overpopulation in those areas. The second most common breed to be euthanized in the state of California is the Chihuahua. We hope to make some impact, even if small, on the extreme number of animals euthanized daily.
