Two weeks ago, on February 4th, 8 dogs were brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County after being rescued by Humane Officer Vail and officer-in-training Winwood. Humane Officer Vail had received two separate anonymous calls in regards to dogs living in very poor conditions. The dogs were signed over to the HSVC after the previous owners agreed that it would be best for the dogs to be in our care until they can be re-homed.
When the dogs arrived at the shelter they were filthy and underweight. In the care of the HSVC the dogs have since been properly groomed and are being brought back up to a healthy weight. Though coming from a background of neglect the dogs are in good spirits and very accepting of the attention and care they are receiving from staff and volunteers. One dog rescued that day has already found a new forever home where she will be treated with love and respect - a life far different from the filthy wire cage she was found living in.
Humane Officers respond to many calls where serious acts of animal neglect and abuse are taking place. Besides enforcing California’s anti-cruelty and anti-neglect laws, Humane Officers serve our community by educating the public about responsible pet ownership and assist those who may not have the resources at their disposal to properly take care of an animal. Often times the animals are signed over to the Officers so that they can receive the necessary care and find a home that best fits their needs.
