Pet of the Week

Meet Nelson, the Pet-of-the-Week available at Helen Woodward Animal Center.  This funny little 1 year old Terrier Miniature Pinscher-blend likes nothing better than a head scritch.  An absolute FAVORITE at the Center, Nelson was the volunteers’ choice for Pet-of-the-Week.  With such a sweet and gentle nature and at only 12 pounds, we think he may get overlooked.  But if you’re seeking a true lovebug with the biggest heart around, you’ve just found your perfect guy.


Nelson is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center.  He has been neutered and is up-to-date on all his vaccinations.  His adoption fee is $264 and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, is micro chipped for identification.  As an added bonus, Sanford also comes with two free passes to SeaWorld!


Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from noon to 6pm; Friday from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 9:30am to 6pm; and Sunday 11 am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1 or visit
