Our mission is to provide a safe haven for domestic animals, regardless of breed or species, through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and sanctuary. We will advocate for the humane treatment of animals, and promote the human-animal bond, by educating the public about the importance of kindness, compassion, and responsible pet ownership which will emphasize spaying and neutering. To achieve these goals we will cooperate and work with other animal rescues and shelters towards the goal of becoming a no-kill nation.
The vision for ACT has been brewing in the minds of the Animal Compassion Team founders for many years. The paths we have walked have prepared us and tested our determination through hard work, buckets of tears, mountains of fecal matter (a favorite topic of discussion amongst animal rescuers), and more than our fair share of discouragement and heartbreak. Having said that, why would we choose to dive in deeper? For the love of the animals we serve. It is just that simple. Dogs, cats, and other wonderful animals are dying in huge numbers daily. We hope to help change that.
ACT is a no-kill, 501(c)3, non-profit animal rescue for the San Joaquin Valley. ACT is non-discriminating of breed or species. We are the shelter for the little brown Chihuahua, Shepherd mix, Pit Bull and black cat.
Animal Compassion Team became an official 501 (c) 3 Non Profit Animal Rescue on August 22, 2009. ACT is made up entirely of dedicated volunteers, and operates completely out of foster homes (there are currently over 75 of them). ACT is out in the community every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with the goal of finding animals homes and educating the community. ACT pulls animals who are out of time in shelters, and takes in animals from the community that would have likely ended up in the shelter and/or contributing to the pet overpopulation by reproducing. Over 3000 animals have found their homes through ACT. ACT recently began a TNR program that has fixed and released over 300 feral cats. ACT volunteers spend countless hours on the phone providing support to community members and trying to increase pet retention. ACT has huge dreams and has only just begun!
