Program Description


"Golden Paws - Senior adopters (65+) receive a 50% reduced fee for falling in love with an older pet (7+ years)."

"Berkeley Humane believes that nobody should have to choose between feeding themselves and feeding their pet. Nobody should have to go without lifesaving vaccines for their pet. And every person and pet deserve a roof over their head – especially during the winter months."
