Animal Prohibition on Port Hueneme Beach

The Port Hueneme Police Department, in cooperation with the Ventura Audubon Society would like to remind those citizens enjoying the Port Hueneme Beaches of the laws prohibiting dogs and any other animal on the beach. These laws extend from Port Hueneme Beach into the Ormond Beach protected habitat in the city limits of Oxnard.

The Ormond Beach area hosts over 200 migratory bird species and more shorebird species are known to use Ormond Beach than any other site in Ventura County. This is a nesting site for the endangered California Least Tern and the threatened Western Snowy Plover. Many of these species are nesting during this time and continue into the summer months.

The presence of dogs, whether leashed or unleashed, create a specific threat to these nesting sites and seriously affect the birds nesting activity. Law prohibits any person to bring or lead any animal onto any sandy beach area of the Hueneme Beach Park or to any waters of the ocean. These laws are posted on signs at beach access points.

Increased enforcement of these laws will begin immediately on the Port Hueneme Beach by police and workers from the Ventura Audubon Society. Violators observed walking any animal on the sand are subject to citations, per 4008 Port Hueneme Municipal Code.

Local dog friendly beaches include Ventura Pier, Surfer’s Point, and Harbor Cove beaches in Ventura and Oxnard State Beach Park.
