How to help/Donations needed

From ABC7:

  • Donate cash or supplies to the Humane Society of Ventura County

    As HSVC works to care for the more than 100 animals that it has taken in since the fires began, the organization says it is in need of donations. Alfalfa hay, Timothy hay, cat chow, rabbit food, flashlights, headlamps, lanterns, water troughs, bottled water, fruit, snacks, hoses and power generators can be dropped off at the shelter at 402 Bryant St. in Ojai.

    HSVC is also asking for food and water donations to feed volunteers working around the clock.

    Those who cannot bring supplies to the shelter can make cash donations on HSVC’s website.

    Support Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation’s disaster relief

    LACACF is accepting donations to supplement its disaster relief efforts through its Noah’s Legacy Fund, which provides supplies, training and equipment to first responders charged with rescuing animals from areas stricken by natural disasters. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 100515, Pasadena, CA 91189-0515 or submitted on the organization’s website.
