The Ojai-based Humane Society of Ventura County (HSVC) is asking for help from the public as they continue to care for 15 large animals, in addition to the cats and dogs in the shelter.
Ten emaciated animals — four cattle and six horses — came to the shelter Dec. 9 from a property in Moorpark. The animals are being held there in protective custody after the owner failed to address HSVC's concerns regarding their care.
