Who We Are
Pause 4 Paws was established in 2011 with a mission of working to ensure that dogs and cats are treated with dignity and respect. Pause 4 Paws supports 17 animal rescues and sanctuaries in Minnesota and a rescue in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Most animal rescues are small, volunteer-based community organizations that do not have staff available to spend time fundraising. P4P works on behalf of these organizations. Our Beneficiary Organizations have saved over 31,000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered more than 21,000 animals. To date, Pause 4 Paws has distributed over $350,000 to its beneficiary organizations and in 2017 we have raised an additional $30,000 for two Special Initiatives -- Gotta Getta Gato and Food 4 Paws.
100% of the funds we distribute through P4P go directly to the support and care of the animals.
