Help Local Horses in Need!

One of the things that makes the Humane Society of Ventura County so unique is its ability to house and rehabilitate neglected and abused horses on its 4.4 acre property in Ojai. Many may remember, back in 2008, when the HSVC rescued 37 horses, including 9 pregnant mares, from a ranch in Ventura County.

Dog Neglected On Vacant Property Needs Your Help!

Gina has had a hard life. Just look into her eyes and you can see years of neglect written all over them. Gina is another case of animal abuse and neglect happening right here in Ventura County. Last week our Humane Officers were contacted by the Sheriff’s Department about a dog roaming a vacant property with no food or water. When Officers arrived they found it filled with abandoned cars, trailers, bikes and other debris. There was a dog wandering the lot who was emaciated with her ribs and hips protruding. She was very lethargic and could barely hold her head up. She had droplets of blood on her ears due to fly strike. There was feces, urine, flies and other unsanitary debris surrounding the property. According to the neighbors the property owners did not come to feed or give her water on a regular basis, this may have been the case for years.

A New Life for Sparky

Every day our Humane Officers receive calls from concerned citizens about animals in our community who need help. On July 23rd the Officers responded to such a call in regards to a dog who was in extremely poor condition. When Officers arrived on the scene they found an 8 year old Chinese Sharpei who was covered in fleas, ticks, and had sores on his body. He had an infection in both ears and eyes, and an infected dewclaw on his foot. It was clear that he had been provided with unfit food, water, and no love or attention. The Officers were able to speak with Sparky’s now previous owners and educate them about not only responsible pet ownership but the law when it comes to taking proper care of an animal. It was agreed by both parties that Sparky would do best in the hands of the Humane Society and was signed over to our Officers right there on the spot.
