Work In Progress...

Welcome to our new VCAS website!  Due to recent technical issues, we rushed our new website into production and it’s not quite finished.  We prioritized getting our SHELTER ANIMALS listed ASAP for people who have either lost their pets or who are looking to adopt a pet.  As a result, a number of buttons and features are not yet functional and will not work if you tap/click them.  Don’t worry, it’s not your computer!  It’s us!  We hope to have everything running properly in the very near future.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding – Ventura County Animal Services
