Dear friends, we are so grateful for the many wonderful people in our community and beyond who have come together in support of displaced animals during the Hill and Woolsey Fires. You have made a difference in these animals lives and in each of ours!
Here at the Humane Society of Ventura County we never imagined the level of kindness and support that would be shown to us amidst the recent fires in Southern California. Many of you are reading this because you have already supported us financially, by donating supplies or volunteering your time. Our gratitude goes out to those volunteers and generous donors that have answered our call for help.
In the past week and a half, the Humane Society of Ventura County has had volunteers from all over the state visit the shelter to help care for the variety of evacuee animals in our care. These individuals came prepared with not only supplies but also smiles and goodwill. From helping with feedings to mucking stalls, these amazing people offered up their free time to help animals displaced by the fires, and we are grateful.
As the Woolsey fire gets under control we know that some animals will be going home and many will continue to be our guests for the days, weeks, and months to come. We are kindly requesting anyone who wishes to pick up their animal to please call the shelter first to arrange a time so that we can have your paperwork ready. For those who continue to have animals in our care please know we will continue to care for them for as long as needed.
