Kilani is ready for a new family

Kilani is an almost 2-year-old, spayed, female German shepherd blend. Fully grown at 75 pounds, she’s got a rich heritage of good family values. Kilani came to Helen Woodward Animal Center as a transfer from another shelter along with a very large litter of puppies.

Kilani, meaning “Mom,” and puppies stayed with a HWAC foster family. All the babies have grown up and found homes, but Kilani still waits for her new family. She is athletic and likes other dogs. Kilani is available for $200. The center is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily (applications are accepted until 5:45 p.m.) at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe.
