By Amy King

Did you know that The Humane Society of Ventura County is celebrating its 90th birthday this June? We are so excited to kick off the celebrations with an Open House on June 11th from 10-3 pm. We have been working hard to get the shelter ready and just this past weekend we were lucky to have a group of volunteers join us for a Clean-Up and Repair Day! We worked with volunteers from our local Kohl's and Amazon facilities who graciously spent their Saturday morning doing the painstaking work of preparing our livestock area to be disaster relief ready.

Thank You for Having Us, Villanova Prep!

By Amy King

We had so much fun visiting the students of Villanova Preparatory School as part of their Mental Health Awareness Week! Our staff brought two of our shelter pups, Bean and Gilbert, to the school during their lunch break to offer the students some much-needed puppy love. As you can see, the dogs didn't seem to mind the attention either! The students had a blast, and it was a great way to get Bean and Gilbert out of the shelter for the afternoon. Thank you Villanova Prep for having us!
