Pet Assisted Therapy

The Humane Society of Ventura County's Pet Assisted Therapy program arranges for Volunteers to take their own pets to visit patients currently living in assisted living facilities and hospitals in our community. The Volunteers will also occasionally bring HSVC animals, which is a great opportunity for them to get out of the shelter and socialize in public. It is an incredibly valuable service that is greatly appreciated by the residents and animals alike. If you are interested in being a part of our Pet Assisted Therapy program, please call the shelter at 805-646-6505 for more information.
