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.
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.

Great Dane! Here is Smith --
Smith is about four-years-old and was recently surrendered to the Great Dane Rescue of MN & WI. Smith spent the first several years of his life with his family in a rural area with lots of room to roam. But, then they moved into the city and they quickly realized that it wasn’t the most ideal situation for Smith -- he needs space to run.
After a brief adjustment period, Smith is doing great with his foster family. One of his favorite pastimes is to snuggle with his people. Smith is an excellent guard dog and he will need a forever home that has an experienced owner. He really needs someone who can read his body language and correct some of his unnecessary guarding behaviors and redirects him.
Smith is currently recovering from Gastric Dilatation Volvulus, also known as Bloat. It happened on New Year’s Eve, and thankfully his foster mom recognized the signs right away and got him into emergency surgery that literally saved his life. Because it was caught so early, there was no tissue damage and he is recovering very well.
For more information about Smith and to arrange a time to meet him, please contact the Great Dane Rescue of MN & WI.
Please visit our Beneficiary Organizations page to see many, many other pets that are available for adoption.
P4P Featured Partner
DIVI UP is a mobile app that allows consumers to find deals at Twin Cities businesses that are supporting local charities. When a consumer finds a deal they like, they pay as little as a dollar to unlock it and DIVI donates half of that unlocking fee to two charities -- one selected by the business offering the deal, the other selected by the consumer. It's a great way to save money while raising money for causes you care about at the same time! DIVI UP is available for free in the App Store and on Google Play.
We are pleased to announce that DIVI Up has designated Pause4Paws as one of its charitable giving options!
