logo.jpgOur numbers are in for 2014! Because of all of the support we received from the Ventura County community we were able to help 455 animals find their forever homes and assist the community with our other services such as Humane Education, Spay and Neuter, Pet Food Bank, and Low Cost Shot Clinic.

  • In 2014 we had 455 adoptions!
  • Our Spay and Neuter clinic altered 1,443 cats and dogs and an additional 265 FREE spay and neuter surgeries for Chihuahua and Chihuahua mixes.

Please help us save even more animals in 2015 by donating to the HSVC even the smallest donation can make a huge difference to these animals.

The Humane Society of Ventura County is a 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.
