❤️It's Our Birthday! 🎂

It’s our Birthday🎂! That’s right friends, tomorrow the Humane Society of Ventura County will celebrate 87 years of service to the people and animals of Ventura County. The nonprofit organization was established in 1932 by a group of dedicated animal lovers who saw a need to provide compassionate care to vulnerable animals throughout the area. After many years of struggling with small locations, very little money, and lots of needy pets, the Humane Society moved into its existing space in 1982 when its beloved benefactor, Sara Bayless, donated 4.4 acres of land in Ojai, California.

It’s our Birthday🎂! That’s right friends, tomorrow the Humane Society of Ventura County will celebrate 87 years of service to the people and animals of Ventura County. The nonprofit organization was established in 1932 by a group of dedicated animal lovers who saw a need to provide compassionate care to vulnerable animals throughout the area. After many years of struggling with small locations, very little money, and lots of needy pets, the Humane Society moved into its existing space in 1982 when its beloved benefactor, Sara Bayless, donated 4.4 acres of land in Ojai, California.

In 1986, the Humane Society of Ventura County opened its first spay and neuter clinic on site and has since been responsible for the alterations of tens of thousands of animals, making an enormous impact on pet overpopulation throughout the county. Dr. Lewis, who ran the clinic for the past thirty years, recently retired and we will always be grateful for his years of dedicated service. In July of 2011, a new visitors center was built and the clinic went under renovation marking the beginning of a project dedicated to increasing the Shelter’s capacity to perform spay and neuter surgeries. Mr. Harry Valentine, who donated the funds to remodel the existing clinic, understood the value of spaying and neutering pets and his contribution will have a lasting effect for generations to come. Since then, spay and neuter has played a leading role in the shelter’s strategy to reduce pet overpopulation. This past Spring, the HSVC welcomed a new Director of Veterinary Services, Dr. Christina Sisk, and under her supervision, the clinic will be able to expand its ability to perform low-cost surgeries even more.

This year for our birthday, we are asking our friends to show their support by making a donation to help us continue with our legacy of improving the lives of animals in need through spay and neuter. You can either donate directly to our clinic fund or purchase much-needed items straight off our Amazon Wishlist. Either way, your contributions will play a significant role in achieving a manageable pet population where every animal can receive the care they need and the love they deserve.

⭐️🎂Don't forget to join us tomorrow, June 8th, at the Shelter to celebrate 87 years of service to Ventura County! Get a behind the scenes peek at the facility, participate in the barking or meowing contest, tour the kennels, meet the staff, and learn about different volunteer opportunities. Visitors will also have the chance to meet the new HSVC Director of Veterinarian Services, Dr. Christina Sisk, and tour our state of the art Spay and Neuter Clinic. Bring the whole family to enjoy refreshments, participate in a treasure hunt, make bandanas for your dog, and learn more about how YOU can make a difference in the lives of animals in need.
