The Humane Society of Ventura County is Open to Animal Evacations


The Humane Society of Ventura County is open for those who have been evacuated and are in need of sanctuary for dogs, cats, horses or other domesticated animals. Fire officials have issued mandatory evacuations for thousands of homes in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties due to The Hill and Woolsley Incidents.

 Our equestrian team is equipped to offer assistance for those in need to evacuate horses. “We were up most of the night answering phone calls and evacuating horses in the path of these fires,” said Jolene Hoffman, Shelter Director for the HSVC. “Our primary concerns is for the safety and welfare of your pets so please do not hesitate to take them to animal rescue centers,” Hoffman continued. “We have increased our capacity in preparation for this year’s fire season and fully staffed to handle the care of all animals brought to our Shelter in Ojai,” said Greg Cooper, Director of Community Outreach for the HSVC. Call our front desk for more information at (805)646-6505.
