Looking for the companionship and affection only a dog or a cat can provide? Then mark Aug. 15 on your calendar. That's the date on which the Humane Society of Ventura County (HSVC) will be participating in Clear the Shelters Day, and the chances for finding just the right pet will be better than good.
"It's a one-day event," said Franki D. Williams, HSVC volunteer coordinator. "The shelter will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and adoption fees will be reduced to $20 on all dogs and cats." The fee includes shots, collar, spay/neuter, ID tag and a free vet check, she said.
