The Humane Society of Ventura County is a NO KILL, private, non-profit 501c3, organization founded in 1932. We receive no direct financial assistance from city, county, state agencies or National Animal Welfare Organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA.

Fundraising events, grants, bequests, investments, supporters and your very important donations are our only sources of income. We truly appreciate your love, concern and support for our Shelter animals and the community outreach services the Humane Society provides. Approximately 95 percent of the contributions we receive are spent on programs and services that directly benefit animals. When animals need a safe haven, we are here for them.

Our Mission is dedicated to promoting the health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals through education and community outreach programs.
