For every Rüdiger cocktail sold the Golden Era will donate $1 to the ongoing expenses of providing for the K9 program.

“Golden Era proudly supports the Nevada City Police K9 Program.

“Rüdiger is a 100% community funded police K9. His acquisition was originally made possible by the generous donation of The Sean M. Walsh Foundation. Two local donors provided the necessary specially equipped K9 vehicle, training and other initial expenses, totally over $70,000. It is now a project of the community to raise the on-going annual expense of maintaining Rüdiger, at an estimated cost of $28,000 per year. This covers the expensive and required POST training to maintain the high level of certification required for Rüdiger to remain on the streets, as well as all related expenses of maintaining a K9 program.”
