Our dogs and volunteers just love the new shade areas located in our dog agility yard! Just ask Frank, Mickey, Bucky, and volunteers Sue and Deb who were putting this new addition to good use this morning!
The revamping of the horse corral, barn and pasture areas at the Humane Society of Ventura County is on-going. The latest addition is the installation of shade structures in the dog agility yard, horse pastures and dog yards on the Shelter property. HSVC Board member John Talley has been leading the efforts to complete the preparations for the horses, dogs and humans for improved daily operations. “I see this as a crucial task to make life at the Shelter that much more comfortable for the animals,” said Talley.
During the Thomas Fire, the HSVC converted all of their open pastures and yards into corrals for the nearly 80 head of livestock evacuated during the fire and subsequent floods. These shade structures will provide additional shelter from the sun and rain when the weather turns inclement. Thank you to volunteers Roger Dickens and Linda and Keith Duval along with Board Member John Talley and Director of Community Outreach Greg Cooper, for their hard work helping get the shades installed last week!
We still have a few larger sponsorship projects available on our Shelter property including the building of a horse wash rack and installation of 20 automatic watering stations. If you are a local contractor or local business looking to donate your time, expertise or funding, please reach out to HSVC Director of Community Outreach Greg Cooper at GregC@hsvc.org or 805-646-6505 x 112.
