Ventura County Animal Services Modifying Adoption Hours

CAMARILLO, Calif. – Ventura County Animal Services will be reducing its pet adoption hours by limiting them to six days a week. On Mondays, the shelter will be open for those who have found lost pets, but not for adoptions.

The move comes as a result of a shift in resources to better manage the County’s two seven-days-a-week shelters. By redeploying employee and volunteer resources, the shelters will be in a better position to properly care for and enrich the lives of the animals in their care on a daily basis.

The new schedule will take effect every Monday beginning March 1, 2018, for pet adoptions at both the Camarillo Animal Shelter at 600 Aviation Drive, and the Simi Valley Animal Shelter at 670 W. Los Angeles Avenue.
