Dog Adoption in San Diego

We’re not just another animal shelter; We’re an animal center, that encompasses multiple programs including pet adoption! Helen Woodward Animal Center has an ever-shifting list of beautiful dogs and puppies available through our San Diego pet adoption program. Please check our website daily for updates! Every pet in our adoption program has received a medical examination, spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, tons of TLC (tender loving care) and a microchip. Helen Woodward Adoption Counselors are here to help you choose a pet that will be your perfect match for life. If you’re considering dog adoption, please visit us today!

Billy Bob

Hello! I am a very friendly, energetic doggie that loves people but needs guidance. I'm always up for a walk or a hike and behave well on a leash. I'm a 'leaner' who likes to cuddle with my friends, but I'm not fond of other dogs so I should be the only dog in the home. I love food and this will help with my training! I'd love to meet you today.
