Acutally client NOT served. Met these fine people at Whities Pets. Found a wonderful Shepperd/Husky mix. While the wife was filling out the application, they insisted I walk the dog round the store. No problem. Wonderful dog. While the wife was getting the money out of the car, they started asking me questions. Specifically about the care of the dog. They didn't like the idea that we were going to keep him outside. We are looking for a security dog. They suggested a "Beware of Dog" sign, until we calmly explained how that opens us up to potential lawsuits. Instead the person who was fostering this dog did not care. She did not want (WANT) it to be an outside dog. We are talking about an 80-100lb dog, when full grown, and she DEMANDED it be an indoor dog, or we wouldn't get it. We left. Mostly in shock, my wife in tears. This woman would rather lock that dog up in a cage at Whities until someone else comes along. This is not compassion. It's a JOKE.

ACT is an amazing organization with exceptional volunteers. I adopted the sweetest dog (Kirby) there. Her foster mom was such a pleasure to meet. I love that they are dedicated to finding the best home for the animal rather then just making money. I could not be happier with the new addition to our family and the experience of adopting from such a wonderful organization. I will forever recommend them to anyone looking for a new pet.

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.

I don't know the internal working of the organization well enough to say what changes I would make.

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!!

Not sure I can comment. They served mr and saved my puppy from death in a shelter. I can't believe no one wanted him.

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.

Try to aggressively pursue corporate donations/sponsorships to generate more funds.

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.

I now have a wonderful furry companion and also get to experience the joy of seeing animals who would be euthanized go to wonderful homes where they will be loved.

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