How You Can Help Elder Paws

Planned Charitable Giving

Won’t you lovingly consider leaving a legacy of kindness? There are virtually no resources available in the Central Valley for senior shelter dogs that receive a terminal or chronic illness diagnosis or are in the final stages of their natural life. By naming Elder Paws as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance policy, charitable trust or IRA you will have peace of mind in knowing that you are expanding your commitment to these animals in need beyond your own lifetime. Almost everyone has the ability to create a legacy gift that will make a lasting positive impact on the lives of these vulnerable seniors in your community while providing a model of compassionate philanthropy for your loved ones. Talk to your attorney or financial advisor about a legacy gift to Elder Paws Senior Dog Foundation (California 501c3, tax ID #45-5291667)


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.
