Senior Pet of the Week - Oreo


Oreo is a 12-year-old Poodle & Shih Tzu mix who was surrendered to our Humane Officers in the field this past August. When Oreo arrived at the Shelter he was extremely matted, but after proper grooming and much love from staff and volunteers, Oreo has blossomed into a fun-loving little dog.

Oreo enjoys going on walks and is always happy to spend time with you. Oreo does need to have regular grooming to keep his coat nice and soft. We do not know how Oreo is with other dogs or cats but he doesn't mind men or women. if you are interested in meeting Oreo, stop by the Humane Society of Ventura County and ask a staff member to introduce you!

November is Adopt-A-Senior Pet month and nationwide, rescues and shelters are celebrating the charms and perks of adopting a senior animal. Here at the Humane Society of Ventura County, we believe that age is only a number. Senior dogs will stay in our care until we find a permanent home, foster, or hospice situation. We believe in giving our senior friends a safe haven until they find their forever homes. There are many reasons to adopt a senior animal! Besides saving a life, senior animals often already know the basics. They are more often than not housebroken and have mastered many social behaviors. Seniors make great pets for someone who may be looking for companionship but do not have the energy to take care of a younger dog. 

If you are a senior yourself and thinking about adopting then we have the program for you! Though you can't put a price tag on love our senior to senior adoptions are discounted to $60. We hope that you will consider adopting a senior animal and truly make a difference in the lives of homeless senior animals!

Included with every dog adoption will be the first DHLPP shot of the series, a rabies vaccine, a medical exam good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery if necessary as well as a collar, ID tag and a leash.

For dog adoptions, a yard check will be performed prior to adoption. In addition to adequate fencing and shelter, those wishing to adopt a pet must provide either proof of ownership of the residence or a rental agreement for that address indicating that pets are allowed.
