A Non-Profit Dog Rescue

paw Welcome to Gateway 4 Paws paw 

We are a Non Profit registered 501(c)3 no kill small breed dog rescue group with fosters on both sides of the river.

We are an all volunteer, foster based organization with all proceeds going directly to the care of the animals. Our mission is to rescue highly adoptable small breed dogs from dogs auctions, owner surrender, and breeder release.

All dogs deserve a chance to live, and have a life filled with love. Please visit our adoption page to see if there is a dog that you would like to meet.
