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!
Join Ron Swanson’s Crew!
Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet-of-the-Week for February 12, 2018
Fans of the NBC hit Parks and Rec will recognize the swagger of a Mew-nicipal Parks Department Manager in this 4-month old, domestic short hair blend. Like his namesake, he’s a big fan of breakfast and he’s a big softy. Our Ron Swanson prefers feather toys to woodworking, and snuggling to solitude. We haven’t heard him stop purring since he’s been with us, and he’s looking forward to sharing his purrs with his forever family.
Ron Swanson is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. His adoption fee is $194. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro-chipped for identification.
Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are closed on Monday and Tuesday, and open daily Wednesday through Friday from 1pm to 6pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1.
