Adopt a Pet in San Diego
Monday–Friday: 12 PM–6 PM
Saturday: 10 AM–6 PM
Sunday: 11 AM–6 PM
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 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!
Best of Both Worlds with Tommy and Toby
Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet-of-the-Week for May 20, 2019
Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. (May 20, 2019) – Fun, gentle, playful, cuddly, adventurous and loving are all words to describe this brother duo. Tommy and Toby are three-year-old best buds with a lot to offer. Toby brings out the best in Tommy (and likewise) who prefers to observe the game rather than jump in. His idea of a good time is relaxing in a cozy loft or cuddling into a comfy box. Toby’s ideal day would involve plenty of toys and action-packed playtime. At the end of the day, these bros just enjoy each other’s company and would love to share their time with you.
They are waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center to find their forever home together. Each of their adoption fees are $89. They have been altered and are up-to-date on all of their vaccinations. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, they are micro-chipped for identification.
