Wednesday, November 01 2017 Our 4th annual Kong drive for shelter pets has officially begun! When you purchase any size Kong toy for your pet at our hospital, we will donate another Kong toy to a shelter pet. With your support, we have been able to donate hundreds of Kong toys to Ventura County Animal Services' Kong Enrichment Program. This program is designed to enhance the daily lives of dogs in our county's Simi Valley and Camarillo shelters by allowing them to enjoy Kong toys stuffed with treats. Our annual Kong drive lasts from now until early December. Click here for more information about Ventura county's no-kill animal shelters.

Sunday, April 10 2016 We would like to take this time to thank and acknowledge all of the volunteers including our own Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT), Suzanne, for selflessly dedicating their time to support causes they believe in. Suzanne volunteers some of her time to the Canine Confidence Crew at Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS). The crew works with dogs who have high energy and/or confidence issues. They stimulate and build confidence in these dogs by getting them to focus and stand on certain objects. They are also using their muscles to balance on these objects which, in turn, tires them physically. "Some come in scared with no confidence," says Suzanne "and they leave a tired, confident dog." Suzanne is not the only one volunteering her time at the Ventura County shelters. Our no-kill Simi Valley and Camarillo shelters are supported by over 100 volunteers. We want to thank each and every volunteer from the bottom of our hearts for making our community a better place. If you're interested in volunteering for VCAS click here.
Thursday, November 19 2015 Get into the spirit of giving with Casey's Toy Drive and our Kong Program. Casey's Toy Drive benefits Mattel Children's hospital at UCLA and was founded in 2009. This year, we are a drop-off location for this wonderful drive. Casey is from Moorpark who suffers from a very rare and incurable intestinal disease. He is dependent on IV nutrition that is administered every night through a permanent IV in his chest. Casey has been a patient at Mattel Children's Hospital since he was a year old and he has developed a very special bond with the nurses, doctors, and staff. Casey's mission is to bring toys to the kids at Mattel Children's Hospital to make their holidays and hard times a little brighter. The toys that Casey collects from friends, family, and the community are used year round for patients that stay in the hospital, that have outpatient surgeries, and that have scary procedures or infusions in the clinic setting. Casey will be accepting donations now through December 20th. Toys must be new and unwrapped due to strict infection control guidelines. Gift cards are also accepted. You can find out more information including a want list on Casey's Facebook page, Casey's Crew. Casey will deliver the donations to the hospital during the week of December 21, 2015. Through mid-December, purchase a Kong for your dog at our office and a shelter pet receives a Kong in return. Thanks to so many wonderful people, Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) has an amazing Kong enrichment program where shelter pets get to enjoy Kongs stuffed with a treat. We are so thankful that our Ventura County shelters do such amazing things and that they are no kill! It takes a tremendous amount of support and effort to operate and maintain shelters especially when they are no kill.
