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.
