The Humane Society of Ventura County is in the process of upgrading the cat-friendly furniture inside our indoor and outdoor Cat and Kitten rooms at the Shelter in Ojai. We have partnered with Kuranda USA in helping outfit the cat areas with their Cat Towers which are heavy duty, stylish and can be disinfected. These will replace all the traditional carpet-based cat trees that were in the lobby and patios which cannot be disinfected when they become soiled.
