Many experienced the effects of the 5.1 magnitude earthquake and its aftershocks that jolted our city yesterday. Despite the center being just four miles southeast of Ojai, HSVC had little to no damage and our animals remained safe and sound. Thank you to all who voiced concern for our staff and furry friends!
It's important to remember that aftershocks of such a large quake can occur for several days after the initial jolt. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) website, 23 aftershocks with a magnitude of 2.5 or higher have occurred in the area following the quake on August 20th. These aftershocks, along with ongoing hurricane and flash flood warnings, are a reminder that an emergency can strike at any moment.
Reminder! The HSVC becomes an evacuation center for your animals, including equine and barn animals, during states of emergency at no cost to pet owners. If you are in need of a safe haven for your animals, please call the shelter at 805-646-6505. We're here to help!
