How You Can Help Elder Paws


should never separate a family

Elder Paws Senior Dog Foundation is a 501c3 California non profit organization (EIN# 45-5291667) that strives to encourage pet retention by covering essential vet care costs allowing dogs six years and older to stay at home with their humans rather than being surrendered to Central Valley kill shelters.


Senior dogs cost considerably more to treat than their younger counterparts. The average cost spent to treat a senior dog is $500 – $600, often more if surgical intervention is needed. We rely entirely on the generosity of donations as well as fundraising efforts (see our “fundraising” page) to cover the cost of these expenses and provide our senior dogs and their humans with a healthier, happier outcome. Options are available for a one-time donation or a monthly donation, and are tax deductible.
