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.

Pet Project Rescue
Located in Minneapolis, MN
Pet Project Rescue (PPR) is a Minnesota based, non-profit organization that specializes in foster-based hospice care for terminally ill MN dogs and cats, and spay/neuter programming from Minnesota to Mexico.
In an effort to provide a comfortable and dignified life for animals that are generally seen as un-adoptable, PPR created a hospice program in 2010, which focuses on providing foster homes for terminally ill animals that are rescued from MN high-kill shelters. These dogs and cats have no other options without PPR, but because of hospice program they are able to have a loving family in their last days and pass with the respect and dignity every living being deserves.
In addition to hospice animal rescue, PPR is focused on reducing the homeless-animal population at its source by providing spay/neuter services for animals both in our local Minnesota community and Mexico. PPR believes that all animals deserve a loving and healthy life. In order to fully provide for animals in need, PPR is run almost entirely by volunteers who dedicate time and energy to help animals in our community and beyond. Pet Project Rescue has been a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit since 2008.
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.
