About Us

Gateway 4 Paws is a Non Profit registered 501(c)3, an all volunteer rescue group located in St. Louis, Mo and the Metro East. We love dogs and want to help those that end up in high kill shelters or are no longer wanted by their owners.

A dog's health is very important and checked by a veterinarian. We make sure they are up-to-date on all of their shots, are spayed or neutered, given flea and heartworm preventative and any veteranarian care that they may need, including dental care

To the best of our abilities, we evaluate all of our dogs temperament and suitability for living with other dogs, cats and children. Then, we place them in loving foster homes until they find their very own family.

Our goal is to find them a loving forever home after a comprehensive evaluation.
