Brenda and the team at Animal Compassion Team do a great job in helping the valleys homeless pets. Their dedication to educating the public regarding the need for spaying and neutering is making a difference. They also trap, spay, neuter and release feral cats to help curb the population problem. The deserve the support from the public for doing the hard work for them. They are the ones who spend all their spare time helping the helpless and going way above and beyond what most people could ever imagine what needs to be done to save these dogs and cats.

I love ACT! I currently have one of their dogs on a Foster basis. Molly is being treated for heartworm. She has quite a story, and could have easily been turned away by ACT. As a part of their screening process her heartworm was detected. There was NO hesitation about her care, they wanted to help Molly and so did I. She is an incredible animal. Without ACT and their compasion I don't know that Molly would have had the same outcome. It is most likely that her heartworm would not have been found. Molly is continuing her treatment and hopefully will be heartworm free! I love ACT, all of their volunteers and their tireless efforts for the animals who can not speak for themselves.

I have seen the volunteers educate citizens about the importance of spay/neuter. I have seen people who were hesitant to spay/neuter see the importance because of the education. These people are amazing. They take in animals that other people would normally give up on, health issues, legs needing amputation. They see the beauty in all creatures. They don't take just the "adoptable" animals. Every animal deserves a chance and they want to give them one.

ACT is a grass-roots non profit that started with a few people wanting to help animals in need. I have watched it grow, become official as a non-profit organization and blossom. I have been fortunate to be able to volunteer in a few small ways. On a rare day off several months ago, I read a post on Facebook that ACT needed a driver to take 2 Dalmations to a rescue organization in Turlock specifically for Dalmations. I called and said that I was available. I met Brenda, the volunteer coordinator for ACT at the house of a man I didn't know. He was surrendering these 2 dogs in hopes of giving them better homes. The dogs were unsocialized, untrained, hadn't ever been on leashes, and very wary of us. This was my first experience helping any animal in this way. It was heartbreaking to see the man give them up, but, heartwarming knowing they would get the care they truly needed. With Brenda and her daughter's help, we loaded them into my small SUV and I drove my precious cargo from Fresno to the meeting point in Turlock. The woman from the Dalmation rescue was waiting, and it was a bit challenging to transfer them to her vehicle. They were scared but she knew how to handle it. Overall, it was a very rewarding experience for me to be able to help transport these dogs. I hope to be able to volunteer more in the future at this wonderful organization!

Find someone who would joyfully donate money and resources to build ACT it's very own facility. They have struggled to find locations to have their adoption days. A locally owned petshop is now sponsoring their adoption days, but having their own facility would help in saving even more animals than they already do!

I adopted a sweet yellow lab from these folks....and I am not even from CA! I was on vacation, saw my pup on the facebook page and happen to be in CA at the time. I called and they were holding an adoption fair in SLO and promised to send him on the truck the next Saturday. I was there bright and early and met my sweet Buster. (aka Fabio) Now he is part of our pack in AZ. He is such a happy boy! We love him!! What a great group ACT is!! I follow their activities and send donations when I can. Great folks in this organization!!

ACT is amazing! My husband and I both are volunteer foster parents and have adopted from ACT as well. They take wonderful care of the animals they rescue, going above and beyond what others might do.
Without ACT we would never have met some amazing people, taken care and helped find homes
for cats and dogs or have our sweet puppy love.
ACT ROCKS!!

I have a friend who adopted a dog from ACT and told me about their adoption site, how great the volunteers were, how you could do a "sleepover" with a potential adoptee, etc..so I decided to stop by one Saturday afternoon and just "look", as I already have 2 pound rescue dogs at home. Well, my friend was right...what a great organization ACT is!! The volunteers were so friendly and knowledgeable, and Hurli (now Olive) stole my heart at first sight:) The adoption process was so easy, organized, and customer friendly, and Olive is the sweetest dog I have ever been around.
I received texts and emails thanking me and wanting photo updates of her, from her foster mom. I have since told my sister (from Sacramento) about ACT, who adopted Wiggles and is the new family favorite!
ACT really has the right idea and knows how to get the message out and help the animals. Their volunteers are amazing people, who work tirelessly to help the animals. I helped fundraise for their annual large fundraiser, and hope to help again next year, and get more people and businesses to see what a great organization ACT is and how successful they are at helping the valley's homeless animals.

I have opened my home and become a foster home for ACT. This rescue team is amazing. Every need of the animal is met in a very timely manner. The compassion and support of the Board of Directors and other volunteers really keep you up beat and positive in some very difficult times. I have volunteered with many "rescue groups" and they have been great, but there is a difference with ACT. They never give up in their battle to make our Valley a safe place for the many homeless animals. The sacrafice many of the Board members make in their very own personal lives is beyond words. I have never met a group that takes every challenge head on like ACT does. Fostering for this group has given me so many joyous moments. Watching a dog find a new life after being beaten, starved, sick, and scared is life changing. I am happy that ACT has allowed me the pleasure of helping them with their mission.

The amount of animals being saved from our local CCSPCA by this group is amazing. The trap/neuter and release program for ferrel cats is helping to stop the over population. Sick and injuted animals that were going to be killed at the CCSPCA have found wonderful, loving homes. Act also educates the public in the importance of spay and neuter and will offer to help the community with finding the best place to have their animals altered. Act also offers help in pet retention.

Try to help more. ACT needs property tto be able to build a shelter so they can help more of the animals on death row at our Valley kill shelters.

My first interaction with Animal Compassion Team occurred when I bought my first house and was looking for a dog as a companion. I researched all of the shelters and rescues in my local area. ACT was the least expensive for the amount of wonderful "perks" they throw in with the adoption. And I found my perfect little doggie, Alyssa. I was impressed that ACT required an adoption application and contract. I immediatly could see that they care first and foremost about the animals. They run completely off of donations and have begun to have a huge presence in the animal loving local community. I had such a great experience adopting from ACT that I decided to become a foster for them as well. I've been able to network with other animal lovers and learn a lot about animal care because of ACT. Please donate to this amazing rescue. They do so much.

ACT needs its own facility and people to get involved. Please donate!
