Adopt A Pet
Helen Woodward animals 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 (tender loving care) and a microchip. Our goal is to adopt out our animals into loving and permanent homes. Helen Woodward Adoption Counselors are here to help you choose a pet that will be your perfect match for life.

Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 11th annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon RESCHEDULED for Sunday, October 2nd, 2016: 8am to 2pm PST. at Dog Beach in Del Mar.
On Friday, Sept. 9th, Del Mar Lifeguards notified Helen Woodward Animal Center about serious water contamination readings pulled from the ocean at Dog Beach in Del Mar and, due to concerns about our human and furry friends, the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon had to be postponed.
Now, with the ocean water cleared for safety, we’re set with a new event date and ready to hit the surf!
Sunday, October 2nd, more than 80 talented dogs will be judged on their ability to catch waves, to stay on the board and to find the fun-factor.
Additional exciting news: The freestyle competition returns this year!

MEET OUR PET OF THE WEEK!
Don’t let her name or size fool you. This two-year-old, 13-pound, Chihuahua-blend girl has a larger-than-life personality. The only thing Littles loves better than a run around the playfield is a good belly rub. She’ll stop whatever she’s doing, flip over on her back, and give you giant flirty eyes to get a great, big affectionate belly rub. This athletic girl is always up for epic adventures. She’s here to prove that the best things come in the smallest packages!
Littles is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been spayed and is up-to-date on all vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $267. 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 SeaWorld.
