How You Can Help Shelter Pets

white.puppies.fdf.jpg

With so many homeless animals in need of shelter, nonprofit animal rescue organizations such as the Humane Society of Ventura County rely heavily on donations to keep our doors open. Here at the HSVC we are very fortunate to have the support of our community on many different levels. Our dedicated volunteers play many roles that include helping socialize the animals, performing grounds work, photographing animals, and assisting at the front desk. Businesses throughout the county show their support by hosting events, contributing portions of their sales, donating goods and services, or placing a donation box at their establishment. Even the youngest members of our community get involved through schools and youth organizations or independently by collecting goods on their birthdays and donating funds earned from doing chores around the home and neighborhood.

The Best Life For Your Betta

Betta fish are an entirely unique species of fish. They are the sole fish species with an organ called a labyrinth, which allows them to breathe air outside the water. This adaptation permits them to live in low oxygen environments like rice paddies; the environment to which they are native in Thailand and Cambodia. This unusual characteristic is one of the plethora of singular attractions of this creature. The striking beauty of the male species, in particular, characterized by its bright colors and long flowing fins and its propensity to be a loner rather than a member of a school, like other fish, top the list.

At least twice a week, Remi, Reid, and their mother Susan come to the Humane Society of Ventura County to spend time with the dogs and cats. This family of animal lovers started volunteering when their youngest turned 10 years old, “We just love the animals and it’s so much fun to come and volunteer here.” Remi and Reid enjoy spending time with the animals and often can’t wait to come again. Their enthusiasm to help these animals is contagious and can put a smile on anyone’s face.
