OUR MISSION: The Humane Society of Ventura County is dedicated to promoting the health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals through education and community outreach programs.

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.

For more information, call the Humane Society’s front desk, at 805-646-6505. For the most up-to-date information, follow the HSVC on Facebook or Instagram.
