Thank you, Frank Salguero, for 32 Years of Service!

At the Humane Society of Ventura County, we are lucky to have dedicated and compassionate staff and volunteers and our longest-term team member has been both! Frank Salguero, a native of Ojai, began working for us in April of 1990 and after his retirement chose to volunteer with us 2-5 days a week. He has become a beloved member of the HSVC family over the years and we are truly grateful for his dedication. Thank you, Frank, for your 32 years of service to Ventura County’s homeless animals!

Mila Takes a Field Trip to the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation!

Four-month-old Mila went on a field trip to visit our friends at the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) last Friday! SDF is a national nonprofit that recruits dogs from shelters across the country and trains them to be search and rescue dogs. They look specifically for young, high-energy breeds that demonstrate tenacity, boldness, and an excessive toy drive. While Mila didn't quite have what it takes to become a search dog, she still had a blast visiting the SDF campus and meeting their staff!
