Welcome to The Humane Society of Ventura County!
Nestled in the rolling hills of the picturesque Ojai Valley lies a 4.4 acre hidden treasure for wayward animals. Founded in 1932, the Humane Society of Ventura County, has been servicing not just the animals of the Ojai area, but all of Ventura County.
Whether it is through donations, adoptions, or the multitude of people who volunteer their time, the shelter exists solely by the generosity and kindness of its supporters.
Traditionally, an animal shelter is thought of as solely a place for animals to seek refuge until a permanent home can be found. While here at the Humane Society of Ventura County we provide this safe refuge, we also strive to remedy the greater problem of animal overpopulation, abuse and neglect.
Since May of 1982, the Humane Society of Ventura County has called its nearly 4.2 acres outside of downtown Ojai home. Originally organized by a group of dedicated animal lovers, the shelter and adoption center has continued to develop alongside the needs of its growing community.
Over the last 85 years, the shelter has helped tens of thousands of animals through the many services and programs available to the public. While most are familiar with their shelter and adoption center, little is known of the low cost spay and neuter clinic, Humane Officers who investigate cases of neglect and abuse throughout the county, and the Humane Education programs that focus on responsible pet ownership. These services are made possible by the support of the very community it serves. Whether it is through donations, adoptions, or the multitude of people who volunteer their time, the shelter exists solely by the generosity and kindness of its supporters.
