About Pause 4 Paws
Pause 4 Paws was established in 2011 with a mission of working to ensure that dogs and cats are treated with dignity and respect. Our Beneficiary Organizations have saved over 25,000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered nearly 17,000 animals. Pause 4 Paws (P4P) raises and distributes funds that support animal rescue programs’ efforts to:
- Provide medical care and spay/neuter clinics;
- Save lives by reducing animal euthanasia;
- Find "forever homes" for all dogs and cats; and
- Raise community awareness through public education and communication.
Pause 4 Paws supports 18 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 goal is to support 10% of the groups that make up the animal rescue network in Minnesota. To date, Pause 4 Paws has distributed over $300,000 to its Beneficiary Organizations.
100% of the funds we distribute through P4P go directly to the support and care of the animals.

Meet Bradley, this week's Miracle boy!
Bradley is a Siamese cat who is just now getting used to living indoors. He is between 2 and 3 years old and was recently found as a stray after living near a doggy day care. Luckily, the owners are cat-lovers, too, because they trapped Bradley (along with some others), spayed/neutered him and and vetted him for adoption.
When Bradley's foster mom brought him to the vet for an exam, he was quite sick and the vet wasn’t sure poor Bradley would make it. After four days of blood transfusions, invasive tests, blood draws and lots of medication, Bradley was able to go back to his foster home. Still, there was concern that he was in heart failure and the doctors were worried how much longer Bradley would live due to his condition.
There is a reason that Bradley is known as the "Miracle Boy." After only a week of treatment, the cardiologist reexamined Bradley and could not believe he was the same cat. Now that he’s traveled the road to recovery, Bradley is getting used to living indoors. He loves cats and dogs, and is starting to warm up to humans. In fact, his foster mom says Bradley is getting more and more social with each passing day. He loves to be petted and he purrs and purrs. If you stop petting him, Bradley will lean into her and head-butt her as a signal to continue. He is a lap-cat in the making!
To learn more about Bradley and to arrange a time to meet him, please email Jill Goldstein.
