Rescue Transfer Partners

Ventura County Animal Services partners with over 130 animal welfare agencies in an effort to find alternative placements for many of our animals. These partnerships are extremely important.  They provide an alternative pathway to find loving homes for many of the animals who require our care.  Some of these organizations are breed specific while others focus on shelter pets in need of medical and/or behavioral assistance.  We are very grateful to these groups who help to find homes for our animals.  All Rescue Transfer Partners are vetted as part of their application process.

If you would like to become a VCAS Rescue Transfer Partner, please email our Rescue Coordinator at vcar.rescue@ventura.org.
