These are very difficult times and VCAS is enacting protocols and stringent measures that may appear drastic. This global pandemic has required all agencies and organizations to take radical steps that are outside the realm of normal operations and VCAS is not immune to this reality. Nonetheless, VCAS is confident that we can endure these changes and continue to care for the animals in Ventura County with the help of the community.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone who continues to care about and for the animals in our community, but we want to also do everything we can to help to “flatten the curve” and promote social distancing efforts. As such, we are continually adjusting our services to best meet these objectives.” - Jackie Rose, Director of Ventura County Animal Services.
