Troy Beugen, Corporate Fundraising

Troy Beugen joined the Pause 4 Paws Board in August 2017.  He is involved in all aspects of fundraising for the organization, including corporate sponsorships. Born and raised in St Louis Park, Minnesota, Troy is the owner of the Troy Beugen Agency – Allstate – St. Paul and Oakdale/Woodbury. He is a graduate of St Louis Park High School attended St. Cloud State University and the University of Minnesota.  Troy and his wife, Mara are long-time supporters of Pause 4 Paws. They have been involved in bringing home/rescuing cats from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico as well local cats, dogs and puppies. On their second date in 1990, Troy and Mara came across a black lab running alone on Cedar Lake Road in St. Louis Park. They quickly agreed that they needed to bring the dog home, loaded him in the car, and took him to the SLP Police Department, where they located the very grateful owner. Troy and Mara now have two daughters, Samantha and Marissa, and a special guy, Max, the Shih Tzu Poodle. They are very grateful for the opportunity that to represent P4P and to continue to make a difference and have a greater impact in the community.
