Five Dollar Friday - Rescue Horses Need Your Help!
Five Dollar Fridays!
Five bucks can make all the difference for an animal in need. Before you start your weekend, won't you please consider making a small donation to help care for horses in need? It's easy, just click here!
Last Tuesday, the Humane Society of Ventura County received two more horses in its care. Many may recall, back in 2008, when the HSVC rescued 37 horses, including 9 pregnant mares, from a ranch in Ventura County. The horses were brought to the shelter to be rehabilitated in the hope of finding new homes.. As with all animals adopted from us, we request that if at anytime the new family can no longer provide the proper care or for any reason need to give up the animal that they bring them back to us.
Back in July, 3 horses that were originally from the case in 2008, were signed back over to the shelter, when their owner could no longer afford to maintain them. The cost of caring for the horses is high, we estimate that the daily cost of five horses is nearly $100 a day. This amount includes their feed, water, and the staff necessary to give them the proper care. Fortunately, these horses are not in distress and are available for adoption immediately to experienced handlers only. It is just as important for horses to receive training and socialization as it is for dogs and other domesticated animals. If you are interested in getting more information on adopting the horses please call our Humane Officers at 805-646-6505. In the meantime, we request all the help we can get in caring for these six beautiful horses! Please consider making a small donation today-every penny counts!
