Meet Jacket! This big, happy-go-lucky Lab-shepherd mix is still a puppy at heart—he's not quite 2. The world is pretty new and exciting for him, and he's still working on adult social graces, but he's a smart boy and loves to learn. If there's play involved, so much the better (check out his video). He'd be a lap dog if he could—he loves to snuggle with people and really wants one of his own. If you're the one who can help Jacket become the amazing dog he's meant to be, get in touch!
Jacket's just one of many dogs currently getting the best of care at the Helen Woodward Animal Center, which has been coming to the rescue of animals in need in the San Diego area for over 40 years. Along the way, they've helped the animals help humans as well, with a therapy pet program, therapeutic riding, and more.
Then there's a lot of just plain fun, which also supports the Center's work. Like the recent Pawmicon, an annual dog-and-human superhero fest. Or, coming up in September: the Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon, where Duke can show off his board skills and you both can enjoy a fun day of sea and sand with your buds. If Duke's skills are a little rusty, no worries—the Animal Center's classes can have you both up to speed in no time!
