Dog Rescued in the Field Ready For Her Forever Home


The decision to spay or neuter your pet can be one of the most important decisions you make for your animals’ long-term welfare. Animal overpopulation is an everyday reality that impacts the lives of tens of thousands of animals each year right here in our own county. By spaying or neutering your pet, you can be an important part of the solution to curbing animal overpopulation. Besides its life-saving results, California state law mandates that all cats and dogs adopted from shelters and animal control agencies must be spayed or neutered.

While many animals in shelters are brought in as strays or rescued from a life of neglect and abuse, more often than not they are given up by their families. Spaying or neutering helps prevent animals being born by accident and is effective in reducing the number of animals who find themselves in the shelter system. In the long term, the one-time cost of a spay or neuter surgery far outweighs the cost that can be incurred by a non-altered pet. While the cost varies depending on the size and sex of your animals, there are many low-cost options throughout the county including our very own low-cost spay and neuter clinic located at the Humane Society of Ventura County.

If you would like to learn more about our spay and neuter service or to make an appointment please call the Shelter at 805-646-6505 or email In the meantime please consider making a donation to the Humane Society of Ventura County and help support our spay and neuter clinic!
