Animal Rescue Team
Our Animal Rescue Team is comprised of Humane Society of Ventura County staff who have experience in and training for evacuations during natural disasters. We have a fleet of two trucks and two stock trailers. The team consists of Humane Officers, Veterinary Assistants, Equine Specialists, Media and Marketing personnel, and Shelter Directors. Our Animal Rescue Team has assisted with evacuations from multitudes of natural disasters over the years.
The equipment, training, and readiness of our Animal Rescue Team to assist in evacuations are funded entirely by our community. The Humane Society of Ventura County is not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States and does not receive any funding from federal, state, or local government. If you would like to make a contribution to our Disaster Preparedness and Evacuation efforts, please visit our website to make a donation. Thank you for your support!
