It’s one of the most unique slumber parties you’ve ever been to!

Gateway Pet Guardians


I absolutely love what my friends at Gateway Pet Guardians are doing to raise money and awareness!

For the second year in a row, Gateway Pet Guardians are turning their staff & volunteers into shelter dogs from 6pm Saturday, June 23 to 6pm Sunday, June 24.  This year, they’re also teaming up with the Belleville Area Humane Society, who is also having their own "slumber pawty" on the same day.

For 24 hours, 13 humans will eat, sleep and play in 6-by 4-foot kennels along with one of their favorite 4 legged shelter residents. The whole event will be streamed on FACEBOOK LIVE as participants ask viewers to donate by playing games, singing songs or whatever they can think of!

Participants have already begun fundraising efforts online and all proceeds will go towards the organization’s animal care costs. Donation can be made HERE
