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 35,000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered nearly 25,000 animals since 2011.
100% of the funds we distribute through P4P go directly to the support and care of the animals.

Located in Plymouth, MN
The Adopt-A-Pet Shop/S.O.S. Rescue Relief, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit relief organization dedicated to providing support to animal rescue groups, shelters and sanctuaries. One of our main goals is to help rescued animals and their organizations find homes and reduce the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets. At our flagship retail adoption center, The Adopt-A-Pet Shop in Plymouth, MN, rescue groups are invited to display companion animals in our friendly and inviting public adoption venue. We also plan to offer other support services in the future, including: Spay/Neuter events; socialization assistance; expert-led training workshops; a database of on-call volunteers and multi –group adoption fairs and fundraisers. Animal sanctuaries, shelters and rescue groups are doing incredible, life-saving work and we’re proud to support their efforts!
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 35,000 animals and facilitated spay/neutering for nearly 25,000 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.
