Helen Woodward Animal Center is not just another no-kill animal shelter.

Located in San Diego, Helen Woodward Animal Center is a unique, private, non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of animals and enriching the lives of people. For more than 30 years, our no-kill Center has provided humane care and animal adoption for orphaned animals, as well as animal-centered educational and therapeutic programs for people. The Center is a dynamic, evolving institution that is an agent of change for the animal welfare world. Not only are we operating innovative and beneficial programs for animals and people, but we are teaching others around the world how to successfully market and promote their animal adoption and humane programs and stop the senseless death of thousands of animals.

We’re not an animal shelter, we are an animal center. That means we turn away from the perception of the passé term “dog pound” and instead become whatever our community needs; an all-inclusive ‘center’ that helps the community’s animals, its people, and educates its children.

Please donate to Helen Woodward today. We’re not just another no-kill animal shelter in San Diego. We will use your support to effect positive change for animals here and around the world. There are many ways you can make a Helen Woodward Animal Center donation. You can give of your time (volunteering), your home (fostering), your property (something off our wish list), your love, or other resources. Your choice to make a Helen Woodward Animal ‘Shelter’ donation actually supports a loving ‘Center’ where you will contribute to our life-saving mission.

Please join us today and make a difference for life.
