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.
Roger's Rescue Ride with KDWB's Dave Ryan

Kickstands up at 10:30 am

We hope you will join us for our first motorcycle ride benefitting Pause 4 Paws. Dave Ryan and his wife, Susan, adopted Roger from one of our Beneficiary Organizations, Angel of Hope animal rescue. They bottle fed him until he was big enough to eat on his own, and the rest is history!
We will have amazing raffle prizes, photo ops, and a chance to meet adoptable animals. We will also have some great breakfast pizzas and lunch and drink specials from our hosts. See you on the 12th!

Beginning in 2018, Pause 4 Paws is restructuring its operations in hopes of broadening our reach across the rescue community. Part of that effort is to establish a formal network of Pause 4 Paws Partners. While Partners will not receive financial support from Pause 4 Paws, the features and benefits of the partnership include:
- Our Partners will be featured in a new section on the Pause 4 Paws website and highlighted on our home page on a rotating basis.
- Pause 4 Paws will promote Partner activities/promotions and highlight Partner successes through social media, and on our website.
- Pause 4 Paws will promote one Beneficiary Organization or Partner and an adoptable animal each week through our adoptable pet program.
- Partners will be invited to participate in Pause 4 Paws events including our annual Adoption Event and other fundraising opportunities.
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.
Please consider joining our efforts by making a contribution. You can give your support in any amount by making an on-line donation, or you can become a formal Pause 4 Paws Sponsor.Donate online
Our sponsors lend their support to Pause 4 Paws through financial donations, media sponsorship, and in-kind services. These sponsorships provide critical support for the daily work and operation of our organization as well as our fundraising efforts -- 100% of the funding we distribute through P4P goes directly to the support and care of the animals.
We are extremely grateful for the dedication and support we receive from our Sponsors.
