For 85 year the Humane Society of Ventura County has provided vital services to the community. Besides our adoption center there are many wonderful programs and services offered to the public. Our Spay and Neuter Clinic was started in 1986 and has since been responsible for altering approximately 15-20 dogs, cats and other animals per day. Humane Education has always been one of our top priorities. We have visited thousands of school classrooms, children and youth organizations, service clubs and various functions promoting the protection of and kindness to all living beings and our environment. Children are never too young to learn respect for all life. Our badged and trained Humane Officers have been responsible for alleviating the suffering of many animals throughout the county. Over 500 reports of neglect and abuse are filed every year. Some of these cases are prosecuted in court, but many are handled by educating and monitoring the pet’s families. The Humane Society alongside other emergency agencies are always involved in rescuing animals during fires, floods and other disasters. The Shelter is a busy place. We never know what it’s going to be like from day to day!
