Our PAWtnership To Help The Helen Woodward Animal Centre CA, Help The Animals

That’s right! We are excited to announce that we’ve just launched a brand-new partnership with the Helen Woodward Animal Center, cementing TrustedHousesitters’ status as an official Trusted Pawtner in 2022.

The Helen Woodward Animal Center, established in 1972, is a nonprofit organization based in San Diego that provides educational and therapeutic programs to the community, as well as humane care and adoption for homeless animals in need. They are a strictly no-kill facility that receives no government funding, and relies heavily on tax-deductible contributions from private donors to continue their life-saving mission.

So, what does this mean for Team Trusted? Our partnership marks the start of a very special year, with a whole host of exciting fundraising initiatives and collaborations in store! Kicking off with Helen Woodward Animal Center’s annual Spring Fling Gala this June.


Hi @Angela-HeadOfCommunity

It is very interesting to read the background story of how the Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) came to be. It is quite inspiring. I love their saying, “animals help people and people help animals.” This is so true as there is no other comparative connection quite like the animal-person/human bond.

One of the events that is held and will be held in September, the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, is quite entertaining to watch. How those dogs stay upright on the surf boards is remarkable.

Thank you for sharing this article and may HWAC’s legacy of caring for animals / people continue on for another 50 years.


Hi @Angela-HeadOfCommunity
This is just so exciting to read about and be a part of this great organization working with Helen Woodward Animal Centre.

Congratulations to all involved!
