Raza & Jones, LLC founding member Sophya Raza has joined the board of Gateway Pet Guardians. The nonprofit organization strives to empower pet owners, create a community of healthy pets, and keep people and pets together. The Board of Directors oversees and supervises the activities of Gateway Pet Guardians.
Raza is a longtime advocate of pet fostering and adoption. She shares a home with her daughter, significant other and nine dogs. The family law firm is a sponsor of Gateway Pet Guardians, covering the adoption fees of a dozen dogs each month.
“I’m proud to join the leadership board for Gateway Pet Guardians,” said Raza. “I understand how important pets are to families. People sometimes find it challenging to care for animals during times of transition and strife, but pets also bring great comfort to kids and adults. This organization is not simply a shelter–they provide resources and solutions to help keep pets and people together.”
Gateway Pet Guardians goes beyond animal rescue by partnering with people and organizations in the community and offering innovative and comprehensive support programs. Gateway Pet Guardians is located in East St. Louis, an area with no veterinary clinics and few places to buy pet food. The organization has a 54,000 square foot Pet Resource Center, and is unique in its commitment to meeting the needs of pet owners and animals throughout East St. Louis and beyond.
