For over 85 years, the Humane Society of Ventura County has served the community with the goal of improving the lives of animals in need. All of our achievements have been made possible with the generosity of our supporters, whether it be donations, volunteering, or adopting.
As a private, non-profit organization we do not receive funding from the government or national animal welfare organizations like Humane Society of the United States or ASPCA. We depend on people who generously give to the animals and the programs that support them. To kick off this giving season, we humbly ask our supporters to include the Humane Society of Ventura County in their end of year contributions!
Nestled in the rolling hills of the picturesque Ojai Valley lies a 4.4-acre hidden treasure for wayward animals. Founded in 1932, we here at the Humane Society of Ventura County have been servicing not just the animals of the Ojai Valley, but all of the animals in Ventura County. Traditionally, an animal shelter is thought of as solely a place for animals to seek refuge until a permanent home can be found.
While here at the Humane Society of Ventura County we provide this safe refuge, we also strive to remedy the greater problem of animal overpopulation, abuse, and neglect. We are dedicated to promoting the health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals in Ventura County through education and community outreach.
All of our programs, services, and outreach are funded one hundred percent by donations, memorials, and sponsorships. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States nor do we receive funding from the city, state or federal government. With the help of many volunteers and continued financial support through donations, memorials, and sponsorships we will continue to provide for all animals within our county.
