Golden Paws Program

Berkeley Humane’s Golden Paws Program promotes awareness and adoption of senior animals. Through the Golden Paws Program, senior people (55+) receive a 50% reduced fee for adopting a senior pet.


All of our animals receive veterinary and behavioral evaluations, spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, heartworm testing (dogs over 6 months), FeLV/FIV testing (cats), heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative and de-worming.


Our adoption package includes adoption counseling and follow-up calls, a take-home adoption packet, temporary 
collar and ID tag, temporary leash or carrier, and a certificate for a free examination at a local veterinary hospital.
