Jon is a welcome face at the Humane Society of Ventura County when he stops by to pick up food from the shelter's Pet Food Bank. “Living on the road with my two Boxers, Misty & Bay, the Humane Society of Ventura County has always provided us with quality dog food at no cost,” said Jon, who has relied on the HSVC’s Pet Food Bank to care for his dogs during difficult times. “People on fixed incomes or little or no income who have dogs, know the increasing costs involved in providing their pets with quality food that fits their pups' needs. The Humane Society of Ventura County provides that food and they are happy to do it. They are a remarkable organization,” continued Jon.

Wanting to support a project that was needed right away was also a factor. “Knowing that this structure will help protect livestock feed for the horses on the Shelter property was the tipping point in deciding which project to fund,” said Mark.
