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.

Direct donations provides the greatest flexibility to purchase 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.

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 assistance? Email the VCAS Foundation or call (805) 388-4333 and a Foundation board member will be in touch.

Updated regularly, our Amazon Wish List is main wish list for Ventura County Animal Services.  Donations can be delivered directly to the Camarillo Animal Shelter at 600 Aviation Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010.
