Humane Society 10th Annual Fundraiser
Sept. 25, 2016

The Humane Society of Ventura County, will hold its 10th annual “Cats in the Canyon & Hounds in the Hollow” fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 25, at Boccali’s Pizza and Pasta Restaurant in Ojai.
Proceeds go to the care of animals in need throughout Ventura County.

This year’s event, which will feature a full vegetarian Italian buffet and a “Buy It Now” marketplace with bargains on items and services from Ventura County businesses, will run from 4 to 7 p.m. Guests also can interact with animals looking for new homes and visit with staff and volunteers. Boccali’s is located at 3277 E. Ojai Ave. The Main Street Jazz Band will provide musical entertainment.

The HSVC has provided continuous support and services to animals in need and their owners throughout the county for over 84 years. Besides their adoption center the shelter also is home to a low-cost spay and neuter clinic, pet food bank, humane education programs and Ventura County’s only two humane officers who investigate cases of animal abuse and neglect. All of these programs are made possible by the support of the public.

Earlier this year, the HSVC announced it will be entering phase one of a large project to rebuild its 34-year-old dog kennels. Increasing funds are necessary in order for the private non-profit to reach its goals.

Tickets purchased in advance are $50 for adults and $30 for children 12 and under. Tickets bought on site will be $60 and $30.

For tickets, to donate a marketplace item or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, call the shelter at 646-6505 (there are no tickets through Boccali's directly). For more information on the HSVC,
