Donate Your Vehicle

If you are thinking about selling or getting rid of a car, but hate to think about all the hassle and paperwork involved, a car donation to San Diego’s Helen Woodward Animal Center may be the best choice for you! All the funds from your car donation go toward our life-saving adoption services for cats and dogs, and educational and therapeutic programs for the community.

At Helen Woodward Animal Center, we work directly with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), a local, reputable nonprofit organization dedicated to exceptional customer service and expanding the value of your car donation.

Making a car donation is easy! Donate your vehicle by calling 844-85-4PAWS or filling out a donation form, and we will handle everything from pickup to paperwork.

Once your vehicle is sold, the proceeds will be donated to Helen Woodward Animal Center in your name and a receipt will be sent to you for your taxes.
