During the recent wildfires, the community in and around Ventura County was tremendously supportive of the Humane Society of Ventura County. Donations have come in many forms including an abundance of dry dog and cat food. One of the services the HSVC offers is a pet-food bank. When our supplies exceed our needs, we redistribute those donations back out to organizations who also serve our community.
HELP of Ojai continues to assist us in this fashion. HELP of Ojai and their affiliate C.A.P. (Community Assistance Program) provides services in response to the basic needs of the residents of the Ojai Valley. “At the HSVC, we strive to provide support for all animals in Ventura County and we can’t do so without the assistance of our community partners,” said Greg Cooper, Director of Community Outreach for the HSVC.
The Humane Society of Ventura County Pet Food Bank provides free pet food to low-income pet guardians. One of the most common reasons for pet relinquishment is financial difficulty, and the Pet Food Bank hopes to help people who are struggling to keep their beloved pets. The Pet Food Bank is entirely supported through community donations and the food is available on a first come, first-served basis until we run out. If you are in need of assistance please stop by the shelter at 402 Bryant Street in Ojai and check in with our front office.
