Animal Compassion Team Of California

Rating: 4.71 stars   63 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 763 Squaw Valley CA 93675 USA

Mission:

To provide a safe haven for domestic animals, regardless of breed or species; through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and sanctuary. To advocate for the humane treatment of animals, and promote the human-animal bond. To educate the public about the importance of kindness, compassion, and responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on spaying and neutering. To cooperate and work with other animal rescues and shelters towards the goal of becoming a no-kill nation. 


Results: To date we have successfully re-homed approximately 1800 animals, provided spay/neuter for 150 feral cats and have provided an alternative option to dumping in our already overcrowded shelters. We have spent countless hours providing counseling services to our community about alternative ways to keep pets instead of surrendering their furry friend.
Target demographics: Entire community, depending on need, all ages.
Geographic areas served: Central California, specifically San Joaquin Valley
Programs: Animal Compassion Team has a volunteer program for people interested in becoming involved in the organization.  Volunteers attend an orientation where they learn about ACT, spaying/neutering pets, volunteer opportunities, and what they are expected to do when they volunteer.  Volunteer opportunities include: marketing, adoption agent, dog walker, cat cuddler, foster parent, rescue transport, and HOPE transport.

I have never met more caring people than the ones that run A.C.T. They are people that truly live up to their name. I have been involved with this organization for 21/2 years. Their facility is so clean. The animals do not want for anything. If you are thinking about getting involved this is the group.

Animal Compassion Team is a wonderful organization that gives so much to the homeless animals of the Central Valley. I have adopted two dogs from them and will never go any where else. The animals there are so loved and we'll cared for, exactly what they need for that second chance at a loving home.

As a volunteer I can say that the facility is well run, clean and cared for. We strive to have adopters not see us as a shelter, but a rescue facility and adoption center. I am so passionate about what we do there I tell everyone I can.

Animal Compassion Team is one of the best Rescues I've ever encountered. The entire team has a deep love for animals, regardless of how hopeless a single case may seem. I've adopted from ACT and am sooo pleased with our furry family member. Had ACT not stepped in to save her, our dog Beverly surely would've died. If you're wondering if this is a good place to donate to or volunteer, I'd say absolutely!!!!

This Organization does an incredible job on a very small budget. Not only do they save animals that are destined to be euthanized at our Central Valley animal shelters but they educate the public, they've created an amazing facility that is welcoming and they are just all around nice people

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

ACT works non stop saving lives and providing the best environment for the animals until they can find their forever homes. The main people know every dog by name. As a volunteer I have no idea how they do it, except they truly treat each animal with the love they so desperately need and provide a home atmosphere. The animals all get play time outside and plenty of hugs and kisses. Medical needs are met at a huge cost to the center. My volunteer hours are immensely appreciated. I'm not sure when the main people at ACT sleep. But I know when ever I leave ACT I'm in complete awe of what they are doing for our community's animals everyday. Act is an inspiring place to be....

I love ACT and everything they stand for. Not only am I a volunteer along with my daughter but I also foster for them and have adopted twice. I have never been around a better group who truly is in this for the animals.

I absolute love Animal Compassion Team! I volunteer with their cats and even adopted one of my own! The people that run ACT are amazing and passionate about what they do. Because of them, I have been inspired to open my own shelter some day!

Two of my three furbabies are from ACT. Our first dog was one of there first few rescues. He is a GSD who along with his brother was an owner surrender. They were suppose to have been aggressive. We met with him and fell immediately fell in love with him. ACT wanted to make sure we were a perfect fit so we spent about 3 hours getting to know each other. We called it our " you have our hearts " meeting. He is the most kind hearted big baby!
