Give a Wag! Gives to Ventura Shelters

When you think of California, do you only think about LA? Because although LA is amazing, it’s not nearly as beautiful as Ventura CA. Ventura is known to be one of America’s most livable communities, located between Malibu and Santa Barbara—which means there’s a lot of beautiful water to look at! Ventura is very community-orientated and offers tax-deductible donation opportunities to benefit the community’s parks, historic properties, and programs for everyone to enjoy. 

Ventura also loves its furry citizens and has a great shelter for dogs, who can also enjoy the beauty of Ventura without having to worry about where they’re going to sleep at night. The Ventura County Animal Services operates two shelters within the county that help pups in any way they can. They have their main shelter in Camarillo, which is home to over 400 pets, and the Simi Valley which houses nearly 40 pets at a time. 

Can you believe that VCAS cares for more than 10,000 animals per year? This organization is constantly promoting adoption, reuniting furry friends with their families, caring for strays, and taking care of medical needs and vaccinations. This type of compassion is what Ventura is all about - they try to provide a safe and encouraging environment and are very involved with the people and fur friends living in the community. Right now, VCAS has over 171 dogs within their facilities, and although they are cared for, it’d be wonderful if they could have a family to themselves!
