Pause 4 Paws Special Initiative Gotta Getta Gato
Pause 4 Paws' first Special Initiative will focus on saving the Cuale Island Cats in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Cuale Island is an 8-block area that has become a dumping area for unwanted cats and kittens. One of our Beneficiary Organizations, Puro Gato, supports the Cuale Island Cats with food, medical care, spay/neutering and also providing around-the-clock security.
Unfortunately, the cats have been subject to abuse and even poisoning in recent months. It has become clear that the number of cats being abandoned is quickly going to exceed the resources that are available. A broader strategy is needed for providing robust security for the animals and to reduce the population on the island by facilitating adoptions.
Pause 4 Paws has a plan to help. We have identified a cargo company that will fly a plane with 50 - 75 cats to the United States to be placed with foster families or adopted. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to pay for the flight, vetting and care for the animals when they arrive. Every cat will have a placement identified before they arrive.
Visit our Special Initiatives page for more information! Receive a commemorative t-shirt for donations of $25 or $50 by February 15th.

Wet Nose Wednesdays
Looking for a new addition to your family?
It's Gato week here at Pause 4 Paws -- you've got to meet Colita & Mama.
They are two early arrivals from Mexico and needed a quick solution. Colita has been dealing with some drama in his life. When he was first found on the street last year, someone had tied is tail into a knot. Luckily, he was taken to the vet, and rather than having to amputate his tail, the vet was able to untie it. Colita was vetted, neutered and vaccinated and placed into a forever home in Mexico but was later surrendered.
Colita is here and ready to find his real forever home. He loves to cuddle, purrs a lot and is a great cat who would be a fantastic addition to any family.
Mama is in fact a mama cat who had three kittens, all of whom have been adopted. Now, this one-year-old is ready to find a forever home for herself. Both cats are very friendly, are good with people, and do well with other cats and dogs.
Please keep either of them in mind if you or anyone you know are looking to add a four-legged friend of the feline persuasion. For more information and to meet Colita and/or Mama, please contact Jill Goldstein.
Please visit our Beneficiary Organizations page to see many, many other pets that are available for adoption.

Top Dog Foundation's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide a loving and permanent home for dogs that are deemed “un-adoptable” because of age and health; that would otherwise be unnecessarily euthanized.
Top Dog's vision is that every senior dog; homeless, abandoned, or labeled “un-adoptable” and scheduled for expiration because of age, and health, will have a loving and permanent home . . . that their transition from this life will be in the arms of someone who loves them.
Bentley Grants were created to provide financial medical assistance to rescue groups and shelters to address serious health-related conditions of dogs in their care.
A joint venture between Top Dog Foundation and Top Dog Country Club to provide permanent care for dogs whose owners want to ensure lifetime care in the event of their deaths.
Bentley’s Place is a permanent home for senior dogs with treatable health issues; those deemed un-adoptable.
The Top Dog Foundation aims to set a new standard for care of elder dogs. Top Dog Sanctuary will provide a wonderful home for senior dogs (typically age ten or older) to live into their golden years in a loving, permanent home . . . not a shelter.
Bentley’s Place will be the first of its kind, setting a new standard for the rescue and care of senior dogs. It will consist of both private and companion “family” suites for its residents, featuring orthopedic beds, soft music, incandescent lighting, air-conditioning, and air purification systems. A monitoring and security system will run 24 hours a day to ensure the health and safety of the “guests”.
Specifically designed indoor and outdoor parks will serve the relaxation and recreation needs of Top Dog Sanctuary’s elder residents. Staff will play with, care for, or just pet these lucky dogs as their needs dictate.
Bentley’s place includes a medical clinic, and hydrotherapy and rehabilitation center.
A training facility, crematory, and full-sized pool will be open to the public and will help to generate ongoing revenue to care for the residents.
These dogs will live with us at The Sanctuary until they die of natural causes or until their health issues reduce any reasonable quality of life.
Your financial support enables Pause 4 Paws to help save the lives of animals and to improve their quality of life through rescue, adoption and sanctuary. The funding that P4P distributes to its rescue organizations has helped save more than 25,000 animals and facilitated spay/neutering for nearly 17,000 dogs and cats, but our work is not done.
