Board of Directors

Would you like to get involved, share your talents, and contribute to making the Humane Society of Ventura County an even better organization?  We encourage you to apply for a volunteer position on our Board of Directors or working committees. 

It is a dynamic time for us at the Humane Society.  After receiving national recognition for our critical part in rescuing and housing hundreds of animals affected by the last three wildfire seasons, we are looking for those of you who have skills and professional experience that can add diversity to our growing board and committees.  We would benefit from the addition of attorneys, bankers, business owners, veterinarians, realtors, accountants, community leaders, financial consultants, and professional fundraisers.  We hope you’ll consider joining our team!

Thank you in advance for your ongoing support of our Compassionate Care Shelter as well as all the services we provide to help create a more humane society for all.
