Wish List

VCAS greatly appreciates your generosity!  We are a successful lifesaving organization due to your kindheartedness.  VCAS maintains two (2) wish lists.  1)  An Amazon Wish List of items specifically chosen for our animals and programs, and 2)  A general wish list of items that can typically be found around the house.  Donation bins are located outside of the Camarillo Animal Shelter, 24/7.  And donation bins are located inside the Simi Valley Animal Shelter during normal business hours.

Thank you for supporting Ventura County Animal Services!
