Pause 4 Paws Special Initiative Gotta Getta Gato
We are almost to our goal! There is still time to Donate...
Pause 4 Paws' first Special Initiative is focused 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 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 has exceeded the available resources.
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. All donations provided to Pause 4 Paws before February 15th will be dedicated to Gotta Getta Gato unless otherwise specified.
Thanks for your support!

Please join us for a family friendly happy hour at Dangerous Man Brewing Company! Our friends at Dangerous Man have generously agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from every pint of beer sold that night to benefit Pause 4 Paws. Come on down to taste the amazing craft beers and grab a snack outside from one of Minneapolis's finest food trucks!
Tell your friends! Bring your kids! Get out of the house and think spring!
Because it is also an active brewing site, pets are not permitted in the taproom for health and safety reasons.

Looking for a new addition to your family?
You have got to meet Audrey!
A 9-year old pit bull terrier, Audrey's foster mom calls her a "60-pound lap dog"! Nothing would make her happier than to find a family to love.
Since Audrey is an older dog, she is pretty mellow and she loves to sleep, but that’s not to say she’d pass up the opportunity to go for a walk! She’s great on a leash and she loves going for car rides, too. Audrey is also quite good at sitting, laying down, and shaking your hand.
Audrey needs to be in a home where she is the only pet -- probably from having to fight for her food in her previous home with other dogs.
Looking to bring a four-legged friend into the home and make a new best friend? Please keep sweet Audrey in mind.
For more information and to arrange a time to meet this gem of a dog, please contact Ruff Start Rescue.
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!
Save money. Do good. DIVI UP.
