Giving Tuesday is just one week away!

By Humane Society of Ventura County

Giving Tuesday is just one week away! Don't forget to join us on Tuesday, November 29th, from 5 - 8 pm at Ojai Valley Brewery for our Giving Tuesday fundraiser event! There will be a silent auction, photo booth, food, and more all to benefit the animals at the HSVC. We especially encourage those with HSVC alumni pets to attend, our staff loves seeing adoption success stories! We'll see you there! Giving Tuesday is a nationally recognized holiday in the nonprofit world that encourages people to give back to their favorite organizations in any way possible. It offers nonprofit organizations the chance to raise more money than they would on an average day of giving, which is why many organizations create unique campaigns to participate in this day of giving. If you are interested in donating a basket for our silent auction, please contact Community Outreach Coordinator Steve McCurry at [email protected] To donate to the HSVC in honor of Giving Tuesday, please click the button below.
