One of the things that makes the Humane Society of Ventura County stand out is its ability to care for large animals at its 4.4-acre facility located in Ojai, California. Equine, animals such as horses and donkeys, often rely on the Shelter for their health and wellbeing and we are always in the process of making improvements to our facility and grounds to better serve the animals in our care.
Over the past year, we focused on updating our pasture and corral and building a horse wash station to help secure horses while they are being bathed or receiving veterinary care and farrier services was a top priority. Recently, three individuals made donations towards the construction of a horse wash area and last week the station was built inside the pasture. Custom made to exact specifications, the station includes horseshoes welded to the posts to be used to safely secure the animals and a sturdy mat to provide comfort and prevent slipping.
Special thanks to DTL Excavating for the construction of the wash station. The Humane Society of Ventura County has many projects in need of funding at the Shelter property.
