Pet Pantry Program

Beginning July 1, 2017 we will no longer have designated Pet Pantry days or times. If you are in need of food, etc., please let our front counter staff know at our Camarillo or Simi Valley campus locations.

Everyone needs a little help at some time in their life. Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) cares about you and your pets. If you need temporary assistance feeding your pet, Pet Pantry is available for you at either shelter location in Camarillo or Simi Valley. Pet Pantry offers FREE supplemental dog and cat food for licensed dogs and cats within Ventura County, thanks to local business partners (see below), Petco, and caring individuals from the community.

If your city requires pet licensing, simply provide proof that your dog/cat has a valid license. Don't worry, licenses will be available for purchase at the pantry! :-)  See our licensing page for fees and information.
