About Helen Woodward Animal Center; A Non Profit Organization
Helen Woodward Animal Center is a unique,
private, non-profit organization in San Diego
County that, for over 40 years, has been committed to the philosophy of people helping animals
and animals helping people. Located on 12 acres in Rancho Santa Fe, our nationally recognized
Center provides a variety of services that benefit
the community through educational and therapeutic programs for people, and humane care and
adoption for animals.
We are a no-kill facility that receives no government funding and relies heavily
on tax-deductible contributions from private donors to continue our life-saving
Helen Woodward Animal Center's passionate belief that animals help people and people help animals through trust, unconditional love, and respect, creates a legacy of caring. Sharing this philosophy with others, the Center inspires and teaches, locally and globally, the importance of the animal-human bond.
