Have you ever heard of a Treeing Walker Coonhound? This unique breed is a descendant of the English Foxhound and you can see many similarities between the two in their color and disposition. Hoss, who we believe to be a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, is as energetic as he is handsome. He came to the Humane Society recently through one of our rescue partners. Hoss will need to be adopted by a family with a large secure yard. He will need lots of exercise and a patient and confident handler to help him with his training. We are not sure how he gets along with other dogs and/or cats, but he will be evaluated by the staff as he spends more time at the Shelter. We recommend anyone interested to research Hoss's breed and if it sounds like a good fit, stop by the Shelter in Ojai to meet him!

Wiley is looking for adventure! Wiley is a 21/1 year old neutered Shepherd mix who was brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County earlier in July from one of our rescue partners. Wiley is doing a good job getting to know everybody at the Humane Society and he's adjusted well to his new routine. He's hoping that a family with a big secure yard will come to meet him soon. He's a high energy dog, so he will need a lot of activity and training to keep him happy. Wiley would do best in a home with no cats. Please come by and meet Wiley if you are looking for a nice big dog to take on adventures!

Check out that smile on Wolfie! Wolfie is a four-year-old neutered gray and tan Poodle and Yorkshire Terrier mix who weighs approximately 23 lbs. Wolfie was brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County when he was found in unfit living conditions and his owner agreed it would be best for him to find a new home. Wolfie is a bit on the shy side but staff and volunteers are working closely with him to get him socialized. He is responding well to his temporary new home at the shelter and looking forward to meeting his future family!

Did you know animals enjoy their playtime just as much as us humans do? Play is considered important for the good health and welfare of a horse and a happy horse is often a playful one. Thank you to Humane Officer Winwood for capturing this delightful moment of Archer enjoying a little playtime in his stall. Since his arrival last October, ten-year-old Archer has come a long way. Archer was rescued in the field by Humane Officers along with 6 other horses and 7 dogs. He was severely emaciated and in poor health when he first arrived and has had a long road to get to where he is today. Not only has Archer's health greatly improved but so have his spirits and he enjoys attention from staff and volunteers. Archer has lots of personality and will need a confident trainer to show him the ropes. Archer is very willing to work and learn from a structured handler. Archer has navicular disease and will need an experienced handler. Navicular disease in horses is commonly understood as inflammation or degeneration of the navicular bone and its surrounding tissues. According to Archer's veterinarian, it shouldn’t limit him as long as he has an owner that understands his needs. #horse #ojai #humanesociety #venturacounty #rescuehorse #shelterlove #equine #adopt #ojaivalley #horselove #horselife

“To the right of my old scraped and scarred desk, a tiny red coat with a thick white collar dangles from a hook. It looks a lot like Christmas and is just about the right size for an elf. There is a bit of magic in it. Of this, I have no doubt. For that little coat gets me to stop each day to consider what matters in life, and what it means to be human.” From Tom Ryan's "Will's Red Coat," the moving true story of a despondent and broken old dog and the man who gave him a second chance. Meet Tom at @pentanglearts on Friday, Sept. 6. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by Tom speaking and will finish with him signing books. VIP tickets include an intimate "Dinner with the Author" immediately following the event at @heartrockkitchen Books will be available for purchase that evening thanks to @yankeebookshop Learn more and purchase your tickets today at: https://pentanglearts.org/event/tom-ryan/ #followingatticus #tomryan #willsredcoat #shelterlove

Charlie can't wait too meet you! Charlie is a neutered poodle mix who was brought to the Humane Society Of Ventura County on August 1st by one of our rescue partners. While we have no background on this sweet guy we estimate his age to be around 5-7 years old. Charlie is a sweet little fluffy guy, he weighs just 12 pounds and has a cataract in his left eye. He would do best in a low-energy home and would love nothing more than sitting by your side as a constant companion. Charlie will need regular sessions with a groomer to keep his coat nice and fluffy. Come by and meet this sweet little guy today!

Happy birthday to Amelia, who just turned 7! Instead of gifts, this thoughtful Nevada Humane supporter asked her friends to bring cat food and supplies to her party. How amazing! Why cat food? Because she thinks they are "soft and cute and fluffy!" Plus, she has one of her own at home, Logan the Siamese. We can't say thank you enough! It's people like Amelia who keep our life-saving mission going. . . . . . . . . . #adopt #shelterlove #adoptdontshop #reno #renonv #nevada #donationsmakeourworldgoround

Izzy, now Midnight, was so excited about going home with her new dad, Shannon, she could barely sit still. Izzy arrived at the Shelter just one week ago and as of today, you would never know it was the same dog. She was incredibly frightened of her new surroundings, but with a little TLC from volunteers and staff, Izzy came out of her shell in no time. Izzy loves the water, and while she doesn't know it yet, she is going to be a beach dog. We are certain from here-on-out life is going to be good for this sweet girl. #beachdog #shelterdog #rescuedog #adoptdontshop #shelterlove #ventura #ojai #happilyeverafter

Little Lulu is a two-year-old spayed Chihuahua looking for a home all her very own. Lulu is a sweet young dog, with lots of energy. She has the most beautiful eyes and a soft shiny coat. She would be perfect in a home looking for a small easy-going dog. We are still getting to know Lulu, but she’s got an amazing personality. She would fit in with a family or individual who can commit to giving her the training, exercise, and affection that she deserves. Lulu is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Ventura County. Photo by @leslielangephoto #hsvc #oaji #chihuahua #adopt #shelterlove #dogoftheday

Sage is as sweet as she is beautiful. Sage was brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County at the beginning of August by one of our rescue partners. While we have no background on Sage we estimate her age to be around 5 years old. She is a very kind and smart dog from what we have observed. Sage is a lovely big girl with a fluffy white blonde coat, our best guess is that she is an Akbash. Sage is still adjusting to her surroundings and can be a bit shy at first. However, with the attention of our volunteers and staff, we know that she will be socializing with everybody any day now. If you are unfamiliar with the Akbash breed we recommend doing plenty of research as Akbash are livestock protection dogs and will be happiest in a home with a large enclosed property and a regular job to do. If an Akbash sounds like the right fit for you, then stop by the shelter to meet her. She's a doll!

Did you know that Young Living has an line of products specifically for animals?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All of you neeed to know. As a vet tech, animal lover, and friend, I had to share this information with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a country, we are so quick to throw medications at everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Minor cut. Antibiotics. One sneeze. Antibiotics. A little nervous when it storms. Sedatives. Scared in the car. Sedative. Husband acting up. Sedative. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, as a vet tech in a shelter, I have good faith in a lot of medications. I have been very thankful for all the medical help I was able to give to foster babies like this one due to modern medicines. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, in our every day lives where animals are typically living in a home with proper care, there needs to be some give. There needs to be a happy middle between my crazy oils and their crazy drugs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am so thankful for Young Living's Animal Scents line to help me find that balance between my passion for vet medicine and my passion for crazy plant juice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Disclaimer, read it really fast in your head like on tv commercials: no animals were harmed in the making of the Instagram post. She is just the cutest little model and I couldn’t help myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Essential oils can be wonderful for animal support, but you should always contact a veterinarian with experience in EOs to guide you with your use. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @youngliving #ylstarterkit #younglivingstarterkit #starterkit #essentialoilsrock #alltheoilsplease #vettech #ditchandswitch #cleanerhomes #animalscents #healthyfamily #yleo #younglivingessentialoils #momliferocks #animallove #shelterlove #slowmotherhood #momgoals #shelterlove #loveforanimals #vetmed #honestparenting #momsquad #momstyle #motherhustler #lovetheanimals #momsoninstagram #healthymamas #kittensofinsta #shelterkittens #showmethelove

❤️🐱TODAY IS NATIONAL CHECK-THE-CHIP DAY🐶❤️ If you have ever lost a pet then you know what a devastating and often heartbreaking experience it can be. According to the American Humane Association, one in three pets will become lost in their lifetime, many of which will never find their way home again. Nationwide it is estimated that only 10-30 percent of lost dogs will ever be returned to their families and sadly the number drops to just two percent for cats. Here at the Humane Society of Ventura County lost animals enter the shelter every day, the majority of which have no identification, making it nearly impossible for their families to be contacted. Many lost animals may be picked up by a stranger and re-homed without their families ever knowing what happened to them. To avoid the guilt and heartbreak of losing a family member, we encourage everyone to make sure that all animals, including those who live entirely indoors, have proper identification. Both an ID tag and microchip (in the case that a tag falls off ) is the ideal combination to keep your pet safe. If your animals are already microchipped we encourage you to check the registration to ensure all information is up to date. For those wishing to get their beloved pets microchipped look no further! Microchipping is available at the Humane Society of Ventura County for just $15 (registration is extra ). So, what are you waiting for? While no appointment is needed, we encourage you to call ahead to make sure a staff member is available to implant a microchip at 805-646-6505. #checkthechip #microchip #ojai #humanesociety #shelterlove #protectyourpets #dog #cat #lostdog #lostcat #animalrescue #animaleshelter #nationalcheckthechipday #don 'tloseme

hsvc_ojai It's always a good day when not one, but two kittens get to go home to the same family! Word must have gotten around that the Humane Society of Ventura County was full of cats and kittens available for adoption. But did you know matching animals in their perfect new home is just one of many ways the Shelter works toward improving the bond between humans and animals? This past year we have worked toward advocating for homeless animals by increasing awareness about the benefits of spay and neuter and our low-cost spay and neuter clinic. While kittens like Cheez-it and Arlene may have hit the jackpot, not all animals are so lucky. Special thanks to Channing Tatum who adopted these two cuties from the Shelter yesterday afternoon. We are grateful for the support of all our valued community members who make a difference in the lives of animals in need! To learn more about the many programs and services the Humane Society of Ventura County offers to the community, please sign up for our weekly newsletter on our website at www.hsvc.org. ❤️🐶🐱 #adoptdontshop #ojai #ventura #channingtatum #spayandneuter #kittensofinstagram #happilyeverafter #shelterlove #805  #ojaivalley #cat #catsofinstagram #animalshelter

Congratulations to Susie, now Mayble, who was adopted by Seamus, Finn, and family this morning! These sweet boys have already created an amazing bond with Mayble, a 4-year-old French Bulldog, who was recently surrendered to the Shelter. It warms our hearts to know how much she will be loved in her new home. For those considering adopting an animal, whether you have a specific breed in mind or not, we encourage you to always visit your local shelter-you never know what you might find! #adoptdontshop #happilyeverafter #shelterlove #frenchbulldog #dog #ojai #ojaivalley #ventura #humanesociety #animalshelter #rescuedog

Who wouldn't want to wake up to this cute smile every day!? Gunner is a six-year-old neutered black Chihuahua mix who was brought to the Humane Society of Ventura County last month from one of our rescue partners. Gunner has been an absolute love since his arrival and he enjoyed helping out at the Humane Society camp hanging out with the kids. He's very smart, and he loves to go out walking on a leash. Gunner has a beautiful shiny black coat with a white muzzle. Gunner is an easy-going dog who just wants to be around people. He has been waiting patiently for his forever family to come along! Come meet his today at the Shelter in Ojai! Photo @leslielangephotos #adopt #dog #dogoftheday #shelterlove #ojai #humanesociety #ventura #lovebug #walkingbuddy

#Repost @hsvc_ojai • • • • • • It's always a good day when not one, but two kittens get to go home to the same family! Word must have gotten around that the Humane Society of Ventura County was full of cats and kittens available for adoption. But did you know matching animals in their perfect new home is just one of many ways the Shelter works toward improving the bond between humans and animals? This past year we have worked toward advocating for homeless animals by increasing awareness about the benefits of spay and neuter and our low-cost spay and neuter clinic. While kittens like Cheez-it and Arlene may have hit the jackpot, not all animals are so lucky. Special thanks to Channing Tatum who adopted these two cuties from the Shelter yesterday afternoon. We are grateful for the support of all our valued community members who make a difference in the lives of animals in need! To learn more about the many programs and services the Humane Society of Ventura County offers to the community, please sign up for our weekly newsletter on our website at www.hsvc.org. ❤️🐶🐱 #adoptdontshop #ojai #ventura #channingtatum #spayandneuter #kittensofinstagram #happilyeverafter #shelterlove #TICTatum #ojaivalley #cat #catsofinstagram #animalshelter

This loving senior snuggle-bug is still available for adoption. One caveat worth mentioning is that Nara insists upon being the only cat in the household. And, you don’t children aren’t for her. OK, that’s two caveats, but she’s entitled to at least two, of course! #shelterlove #adopt #adoptdontshop #seniorcatsrock

Eight-month-old Rocky was very excited about his big adoption day today! This handsome English Bulldog was surrendered to the Shelter by his previous owner not long ago. Ashley and Ted were visiting the Shelter and the three had an instant connection when they met. Rocky wasn't available quite yet but the family visited with him regularly until they could take him home. Congratulations to the happy family! #hsvc #ojai #englishbulldog #happilyeverafter #adoptdontshop #bestfriends #shelterlove #dog #bulldog

Whether assisting our kennel staff caring for animals, answering phones, or organizing an event, our volunteers are truly worth their weight in gold. Dominic has been volunteering for the Humane Society of Ventura County since 2015. Over the years, he has helped the Shelter in a variety of areas working with our animals and helping at the various events the Shelter puts on throughout the year. However, what he enjoys the most is working with the dogs. Dominic first started volunteering alongside his mother, Carol, as a junior volunteer after their family dog had passed away. He missed interacting with animals and figured the best way to spend time with the animals was to give back and volunteer at an animal shelter. One of Dominic’s favorite dogs is Lucas, a 4-year-old neutered black and tan Chihuahua. Lucas has been at the Shelter for almost two months and is a favorite among many volunteers, “He’s super playful and affectionate!”, commented Dominic. Lucas also resembles his current dog that the family had adopted from the HSVC four years ago. “One of my favorite things to do while volunteering is just being with the animals,” Dominic says. Dominic also loves helping out at our annual Santa Paws events. Last year, he helped families pick out costumes for the animals to wear during their photos, and he had a blast. He’s looking forward to Santa Paws this year and can’t wait until November! Our volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of the animals at the Shelter. By spending time with them, volunteers help the dogs, cats, and other critters feel less stressed and more comfortable while waiting for their forever homes. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the Humane Society of Ventura County, it’s easy to get started! Please contact our volunteer coordinator at 805-646-6505 x110 or by email at Volunteer @hsvc org. #hsvc #ojai #volunteer #animalshelter #giftofgiving #humanesociety #shelterlove #animalshelter #rescuedog
