Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) offers a wide array of programs and services to the residents and animals of Ventura County.

VCAS has opened for in-person adoption counseling Friday-Sundays! (There will be no virtual counseling sessions Fri.-Sun.) Monday appointments open 9:30am Sunday mornings.
VIRTUAL ADOPTION SCHEDULING: VCAS only schedules Adoption Counseling appointments Monday-Thursday, 24-48 hours in advance. As a result, you may see, "No times are available in the next month..." Don't worry, this is not so. It simply means all appointment slots are taken for the next two days, but not the rest of the month or year! If all appointment slots appear full, please check back 9:30 tomorrow morning when a new set of appointment slots are made available. Thank you!
You will receive a text message reminder before your appointment
