SAN DIEGO — Service members are invited to the Helen Woodward Animal Center this weekend, where pet adoption fees will be reduced as a thank you to service members.

The Helen Woodward Animal Center of Rancho Santa Fe is partnering for the 8th year with the nonprofit Animals for Armed Forces Foundation to offer the rebate. Fees are waived for active duty, reserve, veterans and their immediate family members, except for the $32 microchip fee.

The promotion runs Saturday through Sunday, in the wake of Veterans Day.

“Our military families deserve our utmost appreciation and I can’t think of a better way to show that appreciation than by offering them the unconditional love of a devoted pet,” said Renee Resko of the Helen Woodward Animal. Center.

The adoption center, located at 6461 El Apajo, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Veterans and military members are asked to bring photo ID and one of the following to receive the discount:

  • Military ID Card
  • Dependent ID
  • Veterans ID card
  • DD-214 and driving license
  • NGB Form 22
