Serving The Animals and People of Ventura County Since 1932 Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic
While the primary mission of the Humane Society of Ventura County is to provide a safe, temporary home for unwanted animals while they await adoption, it also provides many other services to help ensure that animals throughout the county are treated with the love and respect they deserve.
Among the Humane Society's most important work is promoting low-cost spay and neutering at its Spay and Neuter Clinic in Ojai.
It is estimated that for every human birth there are 15 dogs and 45 cats born. These numbers show that there is no way to provide homes for the country's pet population without an aggressive effort to cut down on the animal birth rate. Spaying and neutering as many animals as possible is the answer.
While the Society's low-cost Spay and Neuter Clinic is making a difference, it is too small to handle the number of animals that need to be altered. The Society is currently accepting donations that will allow for an expansion of the facility to serve even more pets.
In addition, Shelter employees are prepared, 24 hours a day, to help with the rescue and transportation of animals during emergencies and natural disasters. Because pets are not allowed in Red Cross evacuation centers, the Society's Shelter is also a drop-off point for animals following a natural disaster such as flood, fire or earthquake.
