    Pal is a friendly palomino gelding who was seized by our Humane Officers last September because he was neglected and extremely underweight. It can take several months for horses to regain's a slow process that must be monitored closely by a veterinarian. He's been with us for six months and what a difference! He looks great and has a clean bill of health! Pal was adopted today by Vienna! What a fantastic new beginning for him!

Midnite has numerous tumors on her underside that would worsen if removed due to her age and other factors. Besides her medical condition Midnite is a lively senior with lots of sass!

  • Oscar and Gang!

    Posted by · February 17, 2015 7:45 AM


    Oscar was a transfer to our Shelter from Ventura County Animal Services about a month ago. He was recadopted, by Zachary, Jeremy, dad Motti and mom Jana (not in pic). What is special about this adoption is that Zachary (left) raised and saved all of the money for Oscar's adoption fee by making and selling orange juice, doing chores, and saving his birthday money & allowance. He has been saving since last August! Needless to say, we are all very impressed with this young man! Good job Zachary!! Oscar is one very lucky dog!!!
