The Ventura County Camarillo Animal Shelter in partnership with Rescue Me Inc. are dedicated to finding homes for EVERY ONE of the shelter's homeless animals during the Seventh Annual Dog-Gone Cat-a-Strophic HUGS, SLURPS and SLOBBERS event.

Additionally, the Ventura County Animal Services is one of 50 agencies who won a spot in the ASPCA's Save More Lives $100K Challenge and is now eligible to win a $100K grant. The agency that saves the largest number of additional cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies beyond the minimum 300 requirement between August 1st and October 31st will be awarded the grant.

Adopters will receive a FREE gift bag and vet visit; REDUCED rate adoption fee, microchip and rabies vaccine; license, and convenient one-stop shopping for the new family member! 

Whether you plan to adopt or not, please come out and support the event by participating in the raffle drawings and silent auction, enjoy live music, meet celebs, and shop vendors.

Drop off cartridges and cellphones for recycling with Rescue Me Inc. as well as your old jeans. Have any pet beds, blankets, towels, sheets, or pillow cases? Please leave them with the shelter as the furbabies could use some comfort while they are awaiting adoption.

Only service animals and day of the event adopted animals are permitted.
