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 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 25,000 animals and spayed or neutered nearly 17,000, 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. 

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