IMPORTANT:  Due to issues beyond our control, shelter animals are not updating/appearing on our website.  Until this is fixed, please view all shelter animals at https://24petconnect.com.  This issue should not affect signing up to adopt a pet online.  We hope to have this issue fixed soon.  Thank you for your patience!

Animal Legend

ANIMAL DESCRIPTION:  Data is collected on every animal brought into our care.  This data may change throughout an animal’s time with us.

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 and/or volunteers are free to name animals.

Age

This is our best guess based on body condition, teeth, eyes, etc., at their time of impound.

Weight

Animals are weighed upon intake and at subsequent medical check ups.

Gender

If an animal does not have “spayed” or “neutered” 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-day or 10-day hold in order to give their owners time to find them. Appointments cannot be made for animals who have an “Adoptable Date” in the future.

Kennel

Kennels 001-899 are at the Camarillo Shelter.

Kennels 900 - 998 are at the Simi Valley Shelter. 

Animals in Kennel “Foster” are in foster care and are available for adoption.

Animals in Kennel “Offsite” are being temporarily housed in a partner location (Petco, PetSmart, etc.) and can be adopted from that location.

City Found

The city in which the animal was found or reported found.

Shelter

Location where the animal is currently living.
