The Humane Society of Ventura County has already received its first animal evacuees in anticipation of the upcoming storm. Earlier today Shelter Director Jolene Hoffman, along with Senior Humane Officer Tracy Vail, and Equine Specialist Christie Tracy retrieved 2 horses and a miniature horse from an area prone to flooding. Back at the shelter, Volunteer Haley Casey, helped to prepare the corrals and assisted with the horses upon arrival. Other animals were dropped off by those residing in evacuation zones throughout the county.
The Shelter in Ojai is currently accepting animals from families under evacuation orders with the pending storm. The Shelter is accepting domesticated animals (cats, dogs, birds, etc.) and livestock such as horses, goats, etc. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a drop off please call the front desk at 805-646-6505. Thank you and stay safe!
