Dogs

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 issue 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 or 10-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 suddenly disappear from the list below, it is likely because their owner came to pick them up.
