Twelve Animals Recovering From Neglect in the Care of the HSVC


Eight dogs (including the one pictured) two rabbits, one cat, and one parrot were recently rescued in the field and brought to safety at the HSVC.

One of the most vital services that the Humane Society of Ventura County is able to provide to the community is our unique ability to protect animals in harm’s way. Whether rescuing animals during a disaster or bringing animals to safety from unfit living conditions, the HSVC extends its compassionate services to anyone who needs our help. For nearly 87 years, our private nonprofit animal welfare facility located in Ojai, California, has been a leader in the field when it comes to protecting vulnerable animals, including offering our support to county and state agencies when necessary. These services, overseen by our Humane Officers, have made it possible to give countless animals a second chance at a happy and healthy life.

Recently the Humane Society of Ventura County partnered with local government and welfare agencies on a case where multiple animals required assistance. As a result, Humane Officers were able to bring eight dogs, two rabbits, one cat, and one parrot to safety. Each animal has since received specialized care provided by veterinarian C. Sisk D.V.M who was on the scene when the animals were rescued. The animals have all been properly groomed and vaccinated. Though frightened, they are doing well in the loving hands of shelter staff.

Our bottom line is simple, to provide compassionate care for animals in need. Whether it is by providing our services during disasters, assisting local law enforcement, or responding to an individual's call for help, we remain committed to the best outcome for the animals who rely on us for their well-being. We appreciate the support we have received in caring for these animals and the countless others who come through our doors each day and encourage anyone who would like to support our animal rescue efforts to make a donation. We thank you all for your continued support.
