Pause 4 Paws raises funding and awareness for 18 Minnesota-based animal rescue organizations. Help Put a New Leash on Life for dogs & cats!
Our Mission:Pause 4 Paws's mission is to raise funding and awareness for animal welfare organizations that provide medical services, foster placement and life improvement opportunities to at-risk dogs and cats.
In January 2010, a volunteer from Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue (RLRR) sent Jill Goldstein a picture of an adorable dog that needed a home. He had been abused and abandoned. He lived in a church parking lot for three months, until he was rescued by RLRR. Jill adopted Oliver a few weeks later and he has been an amazing gift to her ever since.
This experience introduced Jill to the world of rescuing animals and she has transformed her passion for saving lives into the growth of Pause 4 Paws, an organization dedicated to raising funding and awareness for 18 Minnesota-based animal rescue organizations. Our beneficiaries are involved in saving the lives of dogs and cats on a daily basis and they have saved over 18,000 animals since our inception just four years ago. Often these animals are the victims of abuse and neglect.
The funds we raise help the rescue organizations take care of a variety of animal needs, including:
- Fixing broken bones and other damage caused by abuse and neglect
- Rescuing animals from hopeless situations and providing them with foster care
- Sourcing “Furever Homes” for animals
- Hosting spay/neuter clinics to reduce homeless animal populations; Our beneficiaries have provided this service for over 10,000 dogs and cats
