Helen Woodward Adoption Center

Two Felines = More than Twice the Fun!
Well it’s happened again!
Kittens are absolutely everywhere!

Did you know TWO cats or kittens are better than one? Come by to visit our fabulous furry felines, and we’ll tell you why.
The best part - it is so important that our felines grow up with a best friend, that we are waiving the adoption fee for the second feline!

So what are you waiting for?

Welcome to our online animal adoption center. At Helen Woodward Animal Center we have an ever-shifting list of beautiful dogs, puppies, cats and kittens available through our San Diego pet adoption program. Please check our website daily for updates! Helen Woodward animals come from a variety of sources, such as the transfer of animals from public shelters to relieve overcrowding (approximately 90%), as well as owner surrender. Every animal in our pet adoption program has received a medical examination, spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, tons of TLC (tender loving care) and a microchip. Our goal is to adopt out our animals into loving and permanent homes. Helen Woodward Adoption Counselors are here to help you choose a pet that will be your perfect match for life. If you're considering animal adoptions, please visit us today!
