About Us

Pause 4 Paws Inc. is a registered 501c3 U.S. charity organization based in the mountain community of Big Bear City, California.

Our mission is two-fold: Connect residents of the Big Bear Valley to affordable basic veterinarian services for their pets and reduce the stray cat population on the mountain through TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) practices.
