Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Pet of the Week
Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet of the Week for Dec. 2, 2013
No Side-Dish, Sweet “Potato” Vies for Center Stage
\Meet Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Pet-of-the-Week, Potato! This 1.5 year-old, 61lb. Boxer blend is no couch potato; he’s a playful, active dog with a big heart. Boxers are known for their high spirits and high trainability. They also make great family pets, a reputation Potato promises to live up to. He loves to show his toys off to visitors and always keeps an eye on the people he cares about. Potato will make a very sweet addition to the family!
Potato is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. He has been neutered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $299, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro chipped for identification. As an added bonus, Potato also comes with two free passes to Sea World!
Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 6pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).

#GIVING TUESDAY AT HELEN WOODWARD ANIMAL CENTER!
Close on the heels of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” approximately 75 school children (grades 3rd and 4th) from Solana Santa Fe Elementary School, along with employees from local Residence Inns by Marriott, Southwest Airlines, and Snooze AM Eatery in Del Mar, will dedicate “Giving Tuesday” to giving back with good old fashioned elbow-grease. The Tuesday-Givers plan on repainting the Center’s humane education building and prepping craft projects for the Center’s upcoming Frosty Farms Event on the national “opening day” for the end-of-year-giving season. The GIVING TUESDAY gener-PAWS-ity kicks off at Helen Woodward Animal Center at 8:00am on Tuesday, December 3rd at the Center’s education building.
About Helen Woodward Animal Center
Helen Woodward Animal Center is a private, non-profit organization where “people help animals and animals help people.” Founded in 1972 in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., the Center provides services for more than 57,000 people and thousands of animals annually through adoptions, educational and therapeutic programs both onsite and throughout the community. Helen Woodward Animal Center is also the creator of the international Home 4 the Holidays pet adoption drive and the Animal Center Education Services program, teaching the business of saving lives to animal welfare leaders from around the world.
Each week, we feature a great dog or cat looking for a new family… they are called Helen Woodward Animal Center’s “Pet of the Week!” Our animals are transferred to us through a cat rescue or a dog rescue group that needs help, through an overcrowded animal shelter where they simply would have “run out of time,” or even through a surrender by a family or individual. Our Pet of the Week is always a beautiful and wonderful animal looking to be adopted into his or her new family.
