Humane Society to open its doors to public

The Humane Society of Ventura County will celebrate its 85th anniversary with an open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sat., June 10 at its Ojai shelter at 402 Bryant St.

In addition to viewing animals for adoption, attendees can get a behind-the-scenes look at the shelter, interact with animals, tour the kennels and clinic, meet the staff and learn about volunteer opportunities.

Artists and crafts people will have one-of-a kind items for sale. Attendees also can have refreshments, participate in a scavenger hunt and learn more about how they can make a difference in the lives of animals in need.

Humane educator Dawn Reily will have an assortment of critters. Humane officers will give guests a look at the responsibilities and duties of protecting animals throughout the county.

Firefly Ceramics will have a booth. For a $25 donation to benefit the shelter’s new kennels, visitors can design a tile, which will become a permanent part of the structure.

The Humane Society of Ventura County is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1932.
