Who We Are
Pause 4 Paws was established in 2011 with a mission of working to ensure that dogs and cats are treated with dignity and respect. Pause 4 Paws supports 11 animal rescues and sanctuaries in Minnesota and supports the rescue community in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. 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. Our Beneficiary Organizations have saved over 31,000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered more than 21,000 animals since 2011.
100% of the funds we distribute through P4P go directly to the support and care of the animals.

Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue (MWCR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization of volunteers dedicated to the care of rough and smooth Collies. MWCR's purpose is to rescue Collies who have lost their homes, place them in foster homes, provide medical care, assess their traits and personalities, find the best possible adoptive match for them, and place them in loving forever homes. Their volunteers and foster homes are located in Minnesota and Wisconsin and several other states, and Collies have been placed from New York to Texas to California to Canada. MWCR accepts rough and smooth Collies and may accept Collie mixes on a space available basis.
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 31,000 animals and facilitated spay/neutering for nearly 21,000 dogs and cats, but our work is not done.
