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.

Gotta Getta Gato

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. 

Thanks for your support!

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.
