What is the Golden Paw Program?

You will notice a theme in many of our senior dogs available through the “Golden Paw” program.  The seniors love a brisk walk…they still have that youthful desire to get out for a little exercise and explore, but often do not require the long heavy exercise that a younger dog would require.  We think this is one of the beautiful things about the senior GSP’s.

Our “Golden Paw” program works like this:

  1. You adopt one of the dogs we’ve defined as a Golden Paw senior.
  2. Your adoption donation is put into a special account setup specifically for your new dog.
  3. California GSP Rescue “matches” your adoption donation – your dog’s fund now has double the amount you donated to adopt him/her!
  4. Over the life of the dog, as special medical attention is needed for the dog you’ve adopted specifically through this program, you can draw against this account with the amount not to exceed double your original adoption fees.

Exclusions – euthanasia and regular maintenance is excluded from reimbursable expenses from this program.  California GSP Rescue reserves the right to have the adopter get a second opinion from one of our relied upon veterinarians.

If you are unable to adopt a Senior GSP but would like to help, consider making a small donation to help fund the Golden Paw Program. Any amount will help and all donations made to the Golden Paw Program will be kept in a special fund. Funds will be accessed only as needed for those dogs adopted under the Golden Paw Program.
