Here are some of the ways your donation will be put to work: 

Beneficiary Organizations

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. 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.

The funding that P4P distributes to 11 rescue organizations across Minnesota and in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico ensures that the animals have the medical and personal attention to prepare them for their forever homes. Our collective efforts have saved more than 31,000 animals and spayed or neutered over 21,000, but our work is not done.  

100% of the funds we distribute to our Beneficiary Organizations go directly to the support and care of the animals. 

Spay/Neutering and Medical Relief Fund

Pause 4 Paws is working across the state to support spay and neutering of animals in need. Spay/neutering is not only good for animals from a health and behavioral perspective, it is also cost effective for families and the community. Pause 4 Paws also maintains a Medical Relief Fund that is available for emergency situations where an animal is in need of medical care but is not affiliated with a rescue organization. Pause 4 Paws receives many requests like this each year and they often require immediate, life-or-death, decisions.  

Please consider making a contribution to support the work of Pause 4 Paws. You can lend your support in any amount by donating or through one of our Sponsorship opportunities:
