Erica Goetzman of Cargill Wins Community Hero Award Second Year in a Row for Community Work of Pause for Paws

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Erica Goetzman was once again recognized by Cargill CEO David McLennan as a Cargill Community Hero for her continued work on behalf of the well-being of dogs and cats, for a second year in a row. Goetzman has been commended for her extensive efforts to raise money supporting animals of local rescues. Serving on the Board of Directors and a founding member, Goetzman plays a vital role in writing grants to help raise money for medical expenses. In addition to, supporting the Breeder Bill, signed into law by Governor Dayton on May 20th, 2014. This law requires oversight of breeders, fostering animals, and raising awareness in Minnesota about problems dogs and cats continually face due to overpopulation and abuse.

Erica Goetzman graduated from the University of Minnesota with a B.A., and holds a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from William Mitchell College of Law. World-traveller and tri-linguist, she is most passionate about animal welfare and providing a new leash on life to most unfortunate dogs and cats. She was recently elected President of Pause 4 Paws for her hard work and dedication.

With limited resources available to shelters and rescues, animals become vulnerable to losing their lives as shelter space dwindles; as the homeless animal population grows, there is a lack of foster homes. Many cats and dogs lack basic needs, such as food and water, shelter and medical care.

Pause 4 Paws, run entirely by volunteers, delivers food and resources directly to the rescues, raises funds to cover medical expenses, pays for spay and neuter programs, and helps find forever homes. Their work serves hundreds of dogs every month and has reduced euthanasia rates in shelters significantly based on the networking and financial services they provide. Pause 4 Paws President Erica Goetzman is helping to pave the way to stronger Minnesota animal rights and stop the suffering.

Over-population, abuse, and neglect continue to be a huge problem in Minnesota. Financial donations and in-kind donations are always needed, daily.
