Review for ANIMAL COMPASSION TEAM OF CALIFORNIA, Squaw Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about ACT through volunteering with some of ACT's founders. I was amazed by their drive, commitment, and passion for helping the valley's homeless animals. I quickly saw the limits of what I could do as a volunteer in the high kill shelter I was fostering/volunteering in at the time, but I was eager to help the valley's animals. I started volunteering with ACT as they were working to open their first adoption center in the Sierra Vista Mall. I quickly realized I was on the right team- the knowledge, dedication, heart, and vision was apparent from the start. Since then I have become a foster, volunteer, board member, and the volunteer coordinator for ACT. I am happy to say that over 1700 animals have found new homes through ACT over the past two years. Most of these animals were scheduled to be euthanized at local shelters, and are now living wonderful lives in loving homes. ACT set out to be more then an adoption center though and is continuing to work on education, pet retention, and TNR. We have BIG dreams, and many more ideas for the future. ACT is an organization that I am proud to be a part of and feel lucky to have found.

Role:  Board Member & Volunteer, foster, adopter, board member, volunteer coordinator.
