Cause4Pause protects our pets


Members of Cause4Paws love both furry and not-so-furry friends. The club volunteers for a variety of animal-related events, including Strut Your Mutt and the Dryland Dash. They also hold fundraisers to benefit the local UPAWS animal shelter and an animal sanctuary in Peru. Cause4Paws wants to teach students how to properly care for their pets. They hold events on campus where students can meet and socialize with both people and animals.

The organization’s officers “work to create an environment where animal lovers can learn more about their passions, connect with people who have similar minds, and have the opportunity to participate in real life, animal-focused experiences in and around Marquette,” club president Ryla Vatland said in an email.

The group will be hosting Lizards, Cookies and Love from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 6 in Jamrich 1322.

Cause4Paws meets at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays in the LRC, room 235A.
