Anacapa Animal Hospital is proud to be an integral part of the Ventura community! We feel that giving back to our community is important. We appreciate the tremendous efforts of so many non-profit organizations that work to enrich and better all of our lives, and we look forward to continuing and building on these partnerships in the future.
Mutt Mitt – Arroyo Verde Park
Anacapa was the first veterinary sponsor of the Mutt Mitt program organized by the City of Ventura Department of Environmental Services and the Ventura Chamber of Commerce in 2009. When the city stopped funding the poop bag stations at the Arroyo Verde Park, our hospital stepped in to sponsor the stations and ensure these valuable utilities were available for the dog park. The Mutt Mitt program helped to keep our beautiful parks, beaches, public areas and ocean clean by providing degradable pet waste pick-up bags at dispensing stations throughout the city.
National Search Dog Foundation and K9 Unit Support
We are proud of the services and resources we donate to the working dog community. The National Search Dog Foundation and local Ventura PD K9 units are a truly phenomenal group of dogs, handlers, and volunteers that provide an unbelievable service to our community and the nation. We are honored to have supported these groups as they strive to keep our community safe and our residents out of harm’s way.
C.A.R.L. – Canine Adoption and Rescue League
Anacapa is one of many organizations that donate services and resources to the Canine Adoption and Rescue League of Ventura, whose mission is to advocate for animal welfare. They seek to end the needless deaths of companion animals through their adoption, education and outreach programs.
Pooch Parade – Top Dog Sponsor
Anacapa Animal Hospital has been a sponsor and participant of the annual Pooch Parade at San Buenaventura State Beach Park. The Pooch Parade benefits C.A.R.L., which relies on donations and volunteers to survive. Proceeds from the event pay for dog food, housing, training and veterinary costs for the organization.
In addition to sponsoring this event, our hospital shows support by organizing a group of fundraising walkers – a Dog Pack – to raise additional funds for the organization. We have been honored twice at the event for raising the most funds of any dog pack thanks to the support of our wonderful clients who participated in the pack with us.
