Senior Dog Dawn Needs Your Help!

November is Adopt-A-Senior Pet month and here at the Humane Society of Ventura County we are celebrating the charms and perks of adopting a senior animal. At any one time, nearly one third of the animals available here at the shelter are considered seniors. Dawn, a ten year old Doberman and Vizsla mix is just one of the many animals who will find themselves at the shelter during their golden years. Dawn was brought to the HSVC last month after being rescued in the field by our Humane Officers. Officers were responding to a tip about an older dog who was in poor health and living in unsanitary conditions. Dawn's previous owners agreed with the Officers that she would do best in the hands of the Humane Society and she was signed over to the shelter in order to recuperate and find a loving forever home.

Pet Friendly Garden

Dogs love spending time outdoors, and if you happen to have a garden, then it’s likely that it’s one of your pet’s favorite spots in your entire home. However, the things that your four-legged friend may find in your garden may be harmful to his health, as some plants, fertilizers, and mulch are highly toxic for dogs. However, you don’t have to keep your beloved pooch indoors just to keep him safe—all you have to do is provide your dog with a safe outdoor environment that he’ll enjoy.

When temperatures rise the risk of fire can easily escalate throughout the area. We encourage everyone to have a household evacuation plan in place. It’s the best way to protect your family and pets in case of disaster. What is best for you is typically what's best for your animals. The likelihood that you and your animals will survive an emergency depends largely on the planning you do today.
