Ventura County Woman Convicted of Animal Cruelty

Last week the HSVC Humane Officer Division had a hard earned victory in court when a Ventura County jury found a Simi Valley woman guilty of animal cruelty in connection with her care of a horse.

On February 14, 2014 officers Hoffman and Mrvichen responded to an anonymous call about a emaciated palomino horse named Dandylion. Officers and a veterinarian examined Dandylion and it was determined that the horse was in imminent peril due to a lack of adequate food and care. The Humane Society of Ventura County seized Dandylion and he has remained in their care ever since. 

Dandylion is up to a healthy 765 pounds from his previous weight of 570 pounds at the time of his rescue. The horses previous owner could face up to a year in the county jail and probation with terms that would limit her ability to own any horses in the future.

PET OF THE WEEK - SHADOW

SHADOW.jpg

This little man is ShadowShadow is a 3 year old Chihuahua/Schipperke mix who is blind in his left eye from a previous accident. Shadow was surrendered to the shelter by his owners because they did not have the resources to care for him. Shadow's lack of sight in his left eye seems to have very little impact on him and how he experiences the world! He can maneuver just fine and we have not witnessed any instances of him bumping into things or being "clumsy". Dogs can be extremely resilient and can adapt quickly to changes of all kinds!
