Hi there, I'm Jax! Nice to meet you. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was brought into the county shelter as a stray and it was really scary. I didn't know anyone and my people never came to get me. Luckily for me though, the people at ACT fell in love with me right away and took me to a safer place. They quickly began referring to me as the 'staff favorite'.  I was told that I was now at a place where I was going to get the care I needed.  I didn't feel very good at first, and I heard the doctors say I had something called heartworm.  Whatever it was, it was bad. I had to take lots of medicine to get better and they wouldn't let me run or play while I was being treated. But now they say I am all better and all I need are responsible parents who will keep me on heartworm preventative and get my annual heartworm tests for the the rest of my life.  Sounds easy enough to me! Even though I am a senior, I still have some spunk! I love all people and love all the attention I can get. I have to follow my people all over the house, so that I always know where they are. Only older, respectful kids for me though! I am delicate in my old age and can't handle the rambunctious antics of most little ones. I get along with other dogs as long as they leave me alone.  I prefer to take naps instead of playing with other doggy friends and I can get a little grumpy if the other dogs don't leave me alone.  I might do best in a house where I get all the human attention to myself, or in a home with other quiet, mellow dogs who also enjoy sleeping a lot. :) I am an indoor only doggy. I HATE being outside by myself.  One of my absolute favorite things is to go on car rides. I just get so excited when my foster parents walk to the garage door. I always think they are going to bring me with them wherever they are going.  I like walks and walk pretty well on a leash too.  People always stop and pet me on outings because they can't resist my constant smile.  Come say hi to me and you will fall in love too.  I will always rest at your feet and you will never be alone.  I will be by your side forever.

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.
