Five Dollar Friday - We Have Kittens!
We have kittens! Recently the Humane Society of Ventura County transferred 12 adorable kittens from Ventura County Animal Services to our location in Ojai. The kittens were recently fixed and as of this morning are all available for adoption. We hope to get these kittens into their new permanent homes as quickly as possible and encourage anyone interested in adopting a kitten to stop by the shelter today.
When faced with the charms of a cat or kitten, many find it hard to consider the long-term costs and responsibilities of pet ownership. It is always a good idea to discuss with all family members and make sure everyone is on board with providing the proper care for your new pet. Cats can live up to twenty years and during that time there will come a day where your cat may become ill and require medical care. Making sure that you are financially able to care for your new family member is essential to providing them with a loving home that can meet its needs.
Besides food and primary medical care, don’t forget to factor in the costs of other necessities such as flea treatments, litter boxes, toys, identification tags, and boarding if you take a trip out of town. Making sure your home is safe for a curious kitten is crucial to getting your new pet off to a good start. While a pet can bring many years of happiness, knowing what you can manage before you adopt an animal, is the best way to ensure you get a pet that meets your needs and the animal receives an owner who can meet its needs.
While there are many costs associated with adopting a new family member, the Humane Society of Ventura County has you covered! Our adoption fee of $120 for cats under five years old and $75 for cats five years and older, may save you hundreds of dollars on the care required to raise your new pet. All adoptions include the first FVRCP shot in the series, a leukemia test (if age allows), rabies vaccine (if age allows), a medical exam good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, deworming, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery, a safety collar, ID tag, and a cardboard carrier.
If you would like to help us cover the cost of caring for homeless cats and kittens while they await their forever families we encourage you to donate today! No amount is too small to help care for a homeless animal!
***Those wishing to adopt a pet must provide either proof of ownership of the residence or a rental agreement for that address indicating that pets are allowed. Please note the Humane Society of Ventura County may have special requirements and restrictions on animals available for adoption.***
