Annual Easter Eggstravaganza Coming to Camarillo Animal Adoption Center
On Saturday, April 19, from 10 a.m.—3 p.m., Ventura County Animal Services (VCAS) will host the fourth annual Easter Eggstravaganza at the VCAS Camarillo Animal Adoption Center, 600 Aviation Dr., Camarillo.
This free, family-friendly event, sponsored by Foto-Snap and Phil Birdsell Entertainment, will feature half-off adoptions on dogs and cats, an egg hunt, photo booth pictures, crafts, music, prizes, a jolly jumper, a visit from the Easter Bunny, face painting, a scavenger hunt, raffles, food trucks and so much more!
Hosted by VCAS staff and volunteers, the Easter Eggstravaganza is designed to: 1) raise funds for spaying, neutering and caring for VCAS rabbits, 2) raise awareness that live rabbits, chicks and other animals are not Easter toys or gifts, 3) move VCAS closer toward its goal of becoming a “no-kill” organization.
“We hope to end the cycle of impulse rabbit purchases and subsequent abandonments that happen during the springtime every year,” said Tara Diller, VCAS Director. “Instead we invite the public to visit our adoption center in Camarillo, meet our other animals that are waiting for forever families and support us in our efforts to make 2014 a record-breaking year when it comes to the numbers of homeless animals adopted”
To discourage the gifting of live rabbits, VCAS rabbit adoptions will be put on hold from Friday, April 11 – Sunday, April 20 and will resume on Monday, April 21. VCAS encourages people to purchase chocolate and plush rabbits as gifts instead of live animals or adopt dogs and cats at half off the regular adoption fee instead.
