The Humane Society of Ventura County operates a low-cost Spay and Neuter Clinic at its Shelter in Ojai. To celebrate 80 years of service to the community, the HSVC opened their newly renovated Spay and Neuter clinic. CLICK HERE to see before and after photos of the clinic.
 
Appointments are necessary and can be made by calling (805) 646-6505 or (805) 656-5031.
 
-All food and water should be withheld from the animal beginning at 9 p.m. the night prior to their appointment.
-Also, no flea control products (except Frontline or Advantage) of any kind INCLUDING FLEA COLLARS can be used for 30 days prior to the surgery.
-Animals must be left at the Clinic between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. the day of the appointment. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a secure pet carrier.
-They must be picked up between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Unless prior arrangements are made, animals cannot stay overnight.

The truth about spaying and neutering:

  • Altered animals are better companions. Because they are less likely to roam in search of a mate and to participate in aggressive behavior, they can live longer, healthier lives.
  • Neutered cats are less likely to spray and mark their territory.
  • Spaying a female dog or cat removes its heat cycle, which eliminates the constant crying and nervous behavior they display for a week to two weeks, as often as two to three times a year.
  • Spayed and neutered pets are less likely to bite than unaltered animals
  • Even if you are able to find homes for all of your animal’s offspring, allowing your pet to have babies contributes to the pet overpopulation problem by reducing the number of homes available for animals awaiting adoption in shelters.
  • While the Humane Society tries its best to find homes for all animals under its care, the sad fact is that there are not enough homes to go around.
  • Altering your pet will not lead to it getting fat. Animals gain weight because they are fed too much and are given too little exercise. Removing the reproductive system eliminates organs that are subject to infections, tumors and cancers.
  • Your pet should not be used to teach your children the “miracle of birth,” unless you are also prepared to teach them the “reality of death.” Unwanted animals are killed by the thousands each day throughout the United States, making it a tough lesson to learn, especially for the animals.

Megan is a female, brown tabby Domestic Shorthair. She is about 1 year old, and she has been at the Humane Society since October 29, 2013. Megan loves to be petted!
Ashton is a male, gray tabby Domestic Shorthair, who is 1 year old. Ashton has been at the Humane Society since July 30, 2013. Ashton is easy to overlook because of his shyness, but if you are slow and quiet he warms up and enjoys a good scratch!

What makes this so special is the bond that these two cats have cultivated throughout the past 7-8 months. What we are requesting is to find a home that would take both of these sweethearts. Please help us spread the word and find that special person willing to give these two shy kitties a home. We guarantee that house will be filled with love!

We really want these two to go home together so their adoption fees have been cut in half – $120 for both of these sweet cats. The adoption fee of $120 includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, free veterinarian visit, and microchip implantation. For more information on Ashton & Megan,  or other adoptable animals, please call 805 646-6505. You can meet them Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
