Ventura County Animal Services’ staff, volunteers and foster parents care deeply for the animals who enter our shelter system.  While some animals arrive happy and healthy, others may arrive scared, injured, ill or have behavior issues requiring our dedicated teams to mend broken bones and heal broken hearts.

Our top priority is to reunite lost pets with their owners.  Stray animals are placed on a 5-day hold in order to give their owners time to find them.  Animals who arrive with any form of ID are placed on an extended 10-day hold.  If you recognize your lost animal, please reclaim them during normal business hours.  Visit our Lost and Found to view animals found by good Samaritans.  Animals who have not been found by their owner can be made available to adopt after their stray hold has passed.  If you are tracking an animal on our website and they disappear from the list below, it is likely because their owner came to pick them up.

Animal ID

Please use this unique number when referencing animals.

Name

Some animals come in with names. Once animals become available for adoption, VCAS staff/volunteers are free to name animals.

Age

This is our best guess based on body condition, teeth, eyes...etc.

Weight

Animals are weighed upon intake and at medical check ups.

Gender

If an animal does not have “neutered” or “spayed” preceding their gender, this indicates they are either still intact or have not been verified to be altered.

Breed

This is our best guess based on our team’s experience, not a DNA profile.

Intake Date

The date the animal has been impounded into our system.

Adoptable Date

The date the animal can be adopted out. Animals are usually on a 5 or 10-day hold to give their owners time to find them. Appointments can be made for dogs who have an “Adoptable Date” in the future, however you will not be allowed to meet or take home that dog until that date has been reached.
