Thank you for your interest in Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS)! If you would like to schedule a tour, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tours are normally one hour long and are given on Thursdays and Fridays between the hours of 2PM - 5PM. Each group must have a healthy ratio of minors and adults. We have welcomed Daisies, Cub Scouts, Brownies, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church groups, senior groups and many others who are interested groups.

Tours are not confirmed until you have spoken to a VCAS representative. If you live in the Moorpark/Simi Valley area and wish to tour our Simi Valley Animal Shelter, that can be arrainged too. Simply indicate this in the email. Depending on how busy we are, it may take up to 72 hours to respond and schedule a tour.

Guests often like to bring items to donate. If you would like to bring items to donate, please visit our General Wishlist at www.vcas.us/WishList or visit www.vcas.us/AmazonWishlist for specific items in which we are in need.
