The Humane Society of Ventura County has had another successful year of providing free pet food to those in need. We are excited to share that our Shelter distributed approximately 34,000 pounds of free pet food across Ventura County in 2021 through our combined pet food programs! That's over 5x more than what we distributed in 2020!
Many pet owners have found themselves in a time of economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We strive to offer continuous assistance for these underserved communities to help keep pets in their homes and out of shelters. In addition to our on-site Pet Food Bank, HSVC distributed free pet food via our Pantry 4 Paws remote pet food bank program and our DoorDash Pet program.
Our Shelter is able to offer these services with support from our community partners such as Interface Children and Family Services 211, United Way, and DoorDash. We are also grateful to our remote host locations like Kirby Subaru of Ventura for helping us provide free pet food to a larger population within Ventura County.
As a private nonprofit organization, our Shelter does not receive funding from the government and we are not affiliated with the National Humane Society or any other animal welfare organizations. The generous support of individual donors is essential to the continued success of these beneficial programs. If you are interested in joining our cause, please visit our website to donate to these programs. Help us continue to make a difference in the lives of animals in need!
