Hi my name is Betty Jo and I was 4 months old when ACT found me at the shelter and scooped me up…just in the nick of time.  All I know is it was really scary!  Although I may be a tiny bit little shy at first I have nothing but love and kindness to give to my family. :)  It won't take long at all and I will blossom and become a very outgoing and confident girl that a German Shepherd should be.  I'm told I have a long slender nose, wavy coat, and extra long tail so I might just have some collie mixed in and I'm told that's just a beautiful combination.  :)  I'm very gentle and my foster mommy says I'm so easy and fun to have around.  She tells me that I have so many wonderful qualities! Just to name a few she says I'm very smart, very responsive, great temperament, comes when called, great off leash, super friendly with people, kids, dogs, horses, goats and pigs and with some gentle guidance I'm sure I'd be great around cats too.  :)  I won't leave my family's side and my foster mom says that I'm such a good girl with a great personality and loyal as can be! I am learning to use the doggie door and should have it down in no time.  Once I get the leash training down I'd love to be your jogging or hiking partner and I looove to go for car rides and I'm a great'll never knoiw I'm in the car.  I love water too so I think it would be super fun to go to the beach or lake.  :)

I loooove being with my family and will sit next to you wherever you are. My foster mom tells me I have such a gentle soul and would make the perfect friend and companion. :)  My mom tells me all the time that I’m a smart girl so I must be doing something right. I know I sure try. :)  I hope you consider giving me a forever home so I can be your best friend for life.

If you have any questions about me just call, text or e-mail my foster mom Jan. She would be happy to talk to you. You can reach her at 559-960-1755 and

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.
