Adopt a Pet in San Diego
Helen Woodward Animal Center pets come from a variety of sources, such as the transfer of animals from public shelters to relieve overcrowding, working with local dog and cat rescues, as well as owner surrender. Every animal in our pet adoption program has received a medical examination, spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, tons of TLC and a microchip. Our goal is to adopt out our pets into loving and permanent homes. Helen Woodward Animal Center Adoption Counselors are here to help you choose a pet who will be your perfect match for life. If you’re considering pet adoption, please visit us today!

Meet Our Pet of the Week!
Elizabeth Wants to be Queen of Your Heart!
Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet-of-the-Week for May 22, 2017
Elizabeth doesn’t ask for much… Just some belly rubs, more belly rubs… and maybe hours of belly rubs. At just six months old, she’s all-puppy and all-FUN! She’s a Terrier blend with a goofy personality, and friendly demeanor, and an athletic spirit. A humble girl, she doesn’t need to be queen of the castle, but she does want to be queen of your heart.
Elizabeth is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been altered and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $269. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, she is micro-chipped for identification. As an added bonus, she also comes with two free passes to Sea World.
Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).
