About

4 Paws of Gold - Art with a Heart

Hello, I'm Sharon! I grew up in Noank, Connecticut – a quaint little shoreline community and have always loved the beach, the sea and all it’s beauty. I also LOVE dogs…

Quite a few years ago I started volunteering with a Golden Retriever Rescue group where I adopted my Golden girl “Maggie”. As I observed these beautiful rescued Goldens I knew I had to paint them. I combined my love for Goldens, the beach and the sea and began the “Salty Paws Beach Sign” series and opened my Etsy Shop. I like to refer to the dogs in my paintings as “everyone’s Goldens”! If you sniff around my shop, you will also see I offer other painting themes on wood, coasters, ornaments and prints.

Since I opened my shop, I have received many requests to paint other breeds and have enjoyed doing so as I love ALL dogs. There are so many other breeds it is difficult to have an inventory so I paint these as custom orders - if you have another breed and would like a wooden sign, please ask.

I still do volunteer work for the Rescue – I paint their annual holiday cards and also donate many of my paintings to them to be sold. I also donate a portion of all sales to the Rescue - Art with a heart.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop! Oh and by the way - in 2015 I just adopted a new Golden from the rescue! Her name is Tiki and she is vision impaired and she is always at my side!

Thank you for shopping 4 Paws of Gold! I donate a percentage of profit to Golden Retriever Rescue "Golden Rescue South Florida". Please review each item to see the percentage donated for that particular item.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
At the current time I only accept Paypal
Shipping
Wood signs will be shipped by default via US Mail - Priority Mail. I have chosen to ship Priority Mail as the items will not be in mail route as long as Parcel Select Ground. If you are purchasing multiple items, please let me know as I may be able to do better on the shipping cost if I can ship items together. If I am able to ship at a lower cost, I will reimburse the over amount to you after purchase through Paypal.

All other items (cards, ornaments, etc) are shipped via US Mail - First Class.

The packaging for the wood signs are "handmade" and are meant to protect the painting. I can't purchase a box that they will fit perfect in so please excuse my "not so pretty" shipping - my goal is to protect the painting. I also try to use as much recycled material as possible for all shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
If a product is damaged from shipping, I must be notified within 3 days of delivery with a description and picture of damage. I will either refund you or will resend the product.

Wooden Beach and other Wooden Signs: The wooden beach signs are meant to be worn and weathered. They will have holes in them, knots in the wood, minor chips in the wood, minor cracks, etc.. They may also have a little bow in the wood, or may bow over time - this is the nature of wood when it absorbs moisture, dries, absorbs, dries... I do my best to show the wood imperfections in the pictures I display. Since they are to resemble aged signs, they are meant to look this way and therefore refunds will not be given unless there is damage from actual shipping (for instance, the wood is severely cracked from shipping). The other wood signs will also not be perfect as it is wood and wood is just not perfect!

Tile Coasters: I create the tile coasters by hand and do my best to make them as perfect as humanly possible. However, there may be slight imperfections as they are not "manufactured" - again, they are done by hand and therefore will have some "character". That is the nature of handmade!

For all products: The percentage of the sale that was donated to animal rescue is NON-REFUNDABLE. Product where 100% of profit goes to animal rescue is NON-REFUNDABLE. Custom orders are also NON-REFUNDABLE, unless damaged has occurred during shipping. Unless product is being returned because of shipping damage, customer is responsible for return shipping and handling costs. The customer will be refunded once the product has been received by me and the product is received by me in like new condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
I receive many requests from rescue organizations through out the US asking me to donate my products for charity events, auctions, etc. I wish I could help all rescue organizations, but unfortunately I can't - I really wish I could - but I can't. I have therefore chosen the rescue I know and love who rescued my Golden Retrievers Maggie and Tiki.
