VCAS discounts pet adoptions


To reduce overcrowding at Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) adoption centers, VCAS has discounted the adoption fee on all shelter animals, dogs, cats, rabbits and more, from now through July 11. In addition, 85 animals have had their adoption fees waived, thanks to sponsorships provided by Paw Works, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping VCAS maintain its no-kill status.

“It’s critical that we free up some kennel space at our adoption centers before the busy 4th of July weekend,” said Tara Diller, VCAS director. “We encourage anyone who has been thinking about adding a new pet to their family to take advantage of this great deal.”

VCAS offers pet adoption services at their Camarillo and Simi Valley adoption centers seven days per week from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Although VCAS adoption centers will be closed to the public on July 4, officers will be on duty from 8 am – 4 pm to answer phones and in the field and at VCAS adoption centers all day to receive stray animal drop-offs, facilitate animal reclaims and respond to emergencies.

When adopted, all VCAS dogs and cats come with a certification of surgical sterilization, preliminary vaccinations, their first rabies vaccine, a Ventura County animal license, an implanted trovan microchip and a certificate for a free health exam at any Ventura County veterinarian’s office.  In addition, dog adoptions include a free 6 week obedience class.
