   This handsome guy is full of love.  He joined us at ACT after getting a call two dogs were roaming an abandoned building.  As we pulled up to the house we were greeted by Wally, his tail was in full swing as if he already knew us.  He immediatly led us to his sister who had multiple gunshot wounds and could no longer walk .  We carried both dogs through the broken glass and trash.  He looked after his sister until the very end.  We made a promise that Wally would never have to live like that again.

   Despite his past,  Wally is still as sweet and playful as they come.  He is thriving in our playgroup sessions,  and easily adapts to different play styles.   He would do well in a home with a female dog or a submissive male.  He is welcoming to ALL people and is very eager to please.  He knows basic commands and is learning how to walk on a leash without pulling.  He loves playing in water and would make an excellent hiking buddy.   If you are interested in adopting Wally please fill out an application and/or contact

UPDATE 7-17-17:  Brought Wally home for the weekend.  Does very well on car rides, sits calmly in back seat.  He was a perfect boy inside the house, followed me around a bit then took a nap while we watched tv.  Did great on our walk with 3 other small dogs.  Slept quietly in his crate all night.  Took him on a hike next morning then a dip in the lake. He loved the water and  being outdoors.

About Animal Compassion Team of California

About Our Rescue Group...

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 then 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. In August of 2009 we became a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation with the state of California and the Federal Government. It was, and continues to be, a huge leap of faith for all of us who already feel overwhelmed by the work we are doing but we believe this is the time....this is what we have all been preparing for. One life saved makes all the effort and emotional investment worthwhile. This is going to be an exciting journey and we hope to post MANY happy endings. New animals arrive daily......stay tuned .....we have only just begun!

Our Mission Statement:

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 which will emphasize spaying and neutering. To cooperate and work with other animal rescues and shelters towards the goal of becoming a no-kill nation.
