Shelter Staff to the Rescue! - Holly's Story


The shelter staff at HSVC is prepared for more then just caring for cats and dogs. This little piglet (Holly) was brought to the shelter at less then 24 hours old. She was barely hanging on to her life when kennel Attendant Christina Illman was contacted and brought her in.

Archie is Waiting for His Forever Home!


Say "hello" to our new friend Archie! Archie was transferred from Animal Services in Camarillo on January 27th. When Archie first got here he was very timid and scared. Our Assistant Shelter Director brought Archie up into her office during the days to help him get more comfortable here at the shelter and with staff. Turns out, this big guy warms up really quick! He is still not a big fan of the kennels but is happy and relaxed when he is outside. Archie walks nicely on a leash and loves to be around people!

Archie was brought into Animal Services as a stray so we do not have any background information on him. Come meet this big love bug today!

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.
