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!

“Lincoln” Wiggles His Way Into Your Heart!
Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet-of-the-Week for April 24, 2017
At just four months old and six pounds, Lincoln is a small but mighty force at the Center. He’s a silly boy who can often be found wiggling and wagging with his equally playful littermates. Lincoln’s a pup with a big name to live up to, and we know he’ll live up to it with the right forever family.
Lincoln is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $425. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro-chipped for identification. As an added bonus, he 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). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1.
Hornblower’s pup-friendly Pet Day on the Bay is gearing up to set sail once again. The dog-loving tour around the San Diego Bay is celebrating its 17th year of providing marine-lovers and canine-fanatics with tail-wagging adventures and has become so popular that a fourth cruise has been added to the day, which previously offered only three. The annual event will set sail Saturday, April 29, 2017 with departure times of9:30am, 11:15am, 1:00pm and 2:45pm. A FREE canine ticket is included with the purchase of one adult ticket ($25). A portion of the proceeds supports the orphan pets at Helen Woodward Animal Center and a donation of a gently used blanket or towel is suggested.
