Happy Birthday Savannah!


A very special THANK YOU to Savannah and friends! For Savannah's birthday this year she asked for people to bring a donation to the shelter instead of traditional birthday presents. The HSVC welcomed this wonderful group of young ladies last Friday when they dropped off over $250 dollars and got a private tour from our Assistant Shelter Director!

A Home for Hoss!


Hoss is a darling 8-month-old male, brown brindle and white German Shepherd Dog mix. He has been available for adoption since Jan 15, 2015. Hoss needs some training, but he is already house broken and he knows basic commands! He will need to be introduced to where the "bathroom" is in his new home, which is to be expected when bringing a dog to a new home.

Everyone can benefit from having a household evacuation plan in place. It’s the best way to protect your family and pets in case of disaster. What is best for you is typically what's best for your animals.

UPDATE: Brahman Cattle


UPDATE: The four Brahman cattle (Antonia, Ferdinand, Bessi and Rollo) that were brought in to the HSVC by our Humane Officers last month are doing great! They have gained weight and seem to be enjoying the beautiful sunny Ojai weather.

Their case is still pending so they are not yet available for adoption. We will let you know more details as they come in!

Thank You To Our Sponsors & Donors!


Thank you to our sponsors and donors who are making this years first annual Dog Jog possible. We couldn't do it without you!

Coming soon to Lake Casitas! The first annual Dog Jog will be a fun event for people who love animals and want to support our LOCAL Humane Society.

The Dog Jog is a 5k fun run/walk for people (we would LOVE to have dogs participate but it presents too many logistical issues for our very first 5k, hopefully the next one!). The event will take place at Lake Casitas on March 14, 2015. There will be live music by Main Street Band, food trucks, and HSVC will have both information and education booths on site. (Sign up at www.Active.com by February 15th to get a FREE t-shirt).
