It is National Volunteer Appreciation week and the Humane Society of Ventura County is shining a light on all of the amazing things our volunteers do.
Every month, the Humane Society of Ventura County sees dozens of volunteers donating their free time to helping the animals of Ventura County find forever homes. On average, our volunteers donate between 600-700 hours per month! Volunteers contribute to the shelter in a multitude of ways; dog and cat socializing, grounds work, office help, photography and videography, pet assisted therapy, event help, beach visits, yard checks, and more!
Our volunteers play a crucial role in promoting the health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals in the Ventura County. Volunteers are dedicated members of our team assisting in all areas of our operation, such as helping with adoptions and giving the animals the love they need to thrive. As a private, non-profit organization that does not receive funding from the government or national animal welfare organizations like HSUS or ASPCA, we depend on people like you who selflessly give their time to the animals and the programs that support them.
We are always looking for more volunteers to give our animals the love and dedication they need to thrive. Our General Volunteer Orientation is the first step! We hold these orientations twice a month at our location in Ojai and talk about all the different volunteer opportunities.
If you are interested in learning more about our volunteer program and the dates for upcoming orientations, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected].
