Moorpark residents no longer will have to travel to Camarillo to rescue and adopt shelter animals. The Simi Valley Animal Shelter is now hosting dog, cat and bunny adoptions.
Volunteers are staffing the shelter to make the adoptions possible. The shelter, at 670 W. Los Angeles Ave. (between Collins and madera), is open Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
Volunteer Laura Beth Heisen reports the shelter has a wide variety of animals in a range of sizes, ages, fur lengths and personalities.
"Animal shelters are the perfect place to adopt because you know you are saving a life," she said.
Heisen does give one warning, however: "You WILL fall in love."
Adoption fees run from $60 to $125, depending on the animal's age. All pets are already spayed or neutered, have thier shots and a microchip and get a free vet visit.
The Camarillo Animal Shelter, 600 Aviation Drive (at Camarillo Airport), is also still open. Its hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

NoodlesChico Noodles is a one-year old gray and white cat. He is very playful and very loving. Cuddle him and he gives the most soothing purrs. Wiggle a thick string and he comes chasing. Plus, he's incredibly soft! Ask for ID#A558749 Chico is non-stop fun. He is a one-year oldbundle of fun. Fully grown, he's just about 10 pounds. We are not sure what he is, but Silkie Terrier with Wire-Hair Terrier describes him well. Chico would love a home with people who also like to play, although he is so active that he would probably do best in a home with no small children. For any other active home, Chico is great!
