Pets For Vets Act

Ventura County Animal Services is honored to support the Pets For Vets legislation. We are greatful to those who have served our country.

A few notes:  Veterans will need to pay a pet license fee, if applicable. All interested parties must speak with an Adoption Counselors to ensure the best possible matches are made.  Please alert our shelter staff if you, or anyone in your party, suffers from PTSD. We can confidentially arrange for a quiet area to meet the pets you are interested in.
