Help save a life…adopt a shelter pet

With the shelter dangerously overcrowded, Ventura County Animal Services is asking for foster homes and forever homes for their charges.  They have launched a no adoption fees on all dogs to encourage you.  They are asking that you help them maintain their “no-kill” status.

From their Facebook Page:

“Our shelter is at a critical level. We currently have 451 animals in our care, way over capacity. Our average and manageable capacity is 350-400. We strive to keep our animals healthy, happy and disease free. The more animals we have in our care, the more difficult that becomes. We call on you, villagers, to help keep our shelter no-kill. In honor of National Adopt a Dog Month (and Pit Bull Awareness Month!), we’ve decided to waive the adoption fees on all dogs (license fees still apply). We urge you to share this, adopt, foster (even if temporarily to help ease overcrowding) or volunteer to help the animals remain mentally stimulated.”

Here are a couple of their charges:

This is Valentino who has been at the shelter since July 8th.  As you can tell he is a lover, like his name’s sake.

Spots, no one knows her age, and like any female, she’s not telling.  And though they will charge you to adopt her, she’s worth every penny.  She’d be the first to tell you so.
