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.

Donate

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.  

Please consider joining our efforts by making a contribution.  You can give your support in any amount by making an on-line donation, or you can become a formal Pause 4 Paws Sponsor.
