About the VCAS Commission:
The Ventura County Animal Services Commission was brought together as an ad hoc committee in 1978 to allow for continued Animal Control Services throughout the County during severe budget cuts to the Department. Today, the VCAS Commission is comprised of representatives from each of our contracting cities and a member of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors.
The Commission meets quarterly to serve as a policy level Commission regarding contract Animal Services to the cities of Ventura County and the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. They make recommendations to the Animal Services Director and the Ventura County Board of Supervisors regarding Animal Services policies, programs, service levels and fees. Additionally, they facilitate communication and collaboration among the County and contract cities on Animal Services issues, including such matters as city and county ordinances, services and the support of or opposition to State legislation.
