We have numerous programs for volunteers aged from 13 and up, so if you love animals we would love your help! See below for a list and brief descriptions of our volunteer programs.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at the Humane Society of Ventura County. Our volunteers play a crucial role in promoting health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals in the Ventura County. Our volunteers are dedicated members of our team assisting in all areas of our operation. As a private, non-profit organization that does not receive funding from the government or national animal welfare organizations like HSUS or ASPCA, we depend on people like you who selflessly give their time to the animals and the programs that support them. Becoming a volunteer with HSVC is both a great responsibility and privilege. We (both shelter staff and volunteers) pride ourselves on our outstanding care of animals and expect the same from incoming team members. But don’t worry! We will provide all the training you will need to make this experience “pawsitive” for you and the animals!With that commitment, experienced rescuers associated with Canine Adoption Rescue League (CARL), Tiny Loving Canines (TLC), Protect and Promote Animals (PAPA), Rock and Rescue, Inc. and other individuals started meeting on a regular basis to formulate the plans which would eventually become SPARC. Every month new issues were raised and addressed by the committee until a proposed contract was finalized and presented to the city council for vote in March, 2012. With that vote, Santa Paula became “host” to the first and only no kill animal shelter in the Ventura County, providing humane care and treatment for the stray and abandoned animals of the city as well as educational, spay/neuter, vaccination, licensing and other services. Pet over population is a community problem and SPARC presents a humane, community-based solution.SPARC (Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is the first and only no-kill animal shelter in Ventura County. SPARC is a place where homeless animals are brought for humane care without risk of being killed due to lack of space, illness or injury. SPARC is actively saving lives by rehabilitating and re-homing animals, at the same time partnering with the community to educate on the importance of spay/neuter and vaccination programs. To truly deliver on our no-kill mission, SPARC relies on generous contributions from other passionate animal lovers and advocates.Since May of 1982, the Humane Society of Ventura County has called its nearly 4.4 acres outside of downtown Ojai home. Originally organized by a group of dedicated animal lovers, the shelter and adoption center has continued to develop alongside the needs of its growing community.
