HSVC Closes to the Public in Response to COVID-19

In correspondence with Gov. Newsom and Ventura County Public Health’s “Stay Well at Home” emergency order for California residents, the Humane Society of Ventura County is closing their doors to the public until further notice.

The HSVC is committed to the health and safety of our community, our staff, and the animals in our care during the COVID-19 crisis. Effective March 20th, 2020, we are asking that the public to only come to the shelter if you are in need of emergency services (i.e. reclaim of lost pets, bringing in stray animals, etc.). Due to the issued “Stay at Home” order, we will not be performing adoptions at this time. We will remain staffed from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday to perform emergency services. Office staff will continue to be available to answer any questions and concerns you may have via phone at 805-646-6505 or email at [email protected].

Kennel staff will remain on-site to ensure that our animals continue to be fed, exercised, and socialized properly.

Volunteer opportunities are unavailable at this time. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Amanda Volden at [email protected] with any questions.

At this time, our foster program is on hold in response to social distancing and the current “stay at home” order. For updated information on our foster program, please contact the shelter or visit our website www.hsvc.org.

Our Pet Food Bank will remain open to provide pet food to those in need. We are still accepting donations in the form of UNOPENED pet food. Donations can be dropped off at the shelter or purchased through our Amazon Wish List.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We appreciate your patience during this difficult time.
