Ways to Help

There are a number of ways you can help support our life-saving mission at Ventura County Animal Services.  VCAS conducts all fundraising and donor-related activities through our 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation, Animal Services Foundation of Ventura County (77-0504872).  100% of your donation will benefit the animals in our care.   All monetary donations are tax-deductible.  If you have questions or need assistance in making monetary donations, please Email the VCAS Foundation or call (805) 388-4333.  Thank you.

Monetary donations gives us the greatest flexibility to provide what our animals need, when they need it.  General use donations are used in a variety of ways: from veterinary care and enrichment toys, to kitten formula and specialty food.

“In HONOR or MEMORY of” Make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one or cherished companion animal.  A letter can be sent to the honoree, or their family, if you select that option.  Need help? Email the VCAS Foundation or call (805) 388-4333.

Make a difference in the daily lives of our animals.  Volunteering is easy and there are many ways you can help on-site at either the Camarillo or Simi Valley Animal Shelters.

Open your heart and home to shelter pets in need.  Take on kittens, cats, dogs or rabbits.  Sometimes a shelter pet simply needs a quiet space to rest, recover or rejuvenate.

Update regularly with specific items needed, all Amazon Wish List items can be delivered directly to the Camarillo Animal Shelter at 600 Aviation Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010.
