Hi there, my name is Dottie West, but everyone calls me Dot for short or DotDot for fun. I'm such a pretty little diva, you can tell by the way I prance. I'm a mature lady that knows what she wants. I love to take long naps in my bed when my people are off hunting for that delicious canned food (it sure takes them a while). I don't like to use my voice much, but when I do, I expect full attention. It does not take much to make me content. I love food, I love being scratched, I love my personal stairs to my king size bed, and did I mention I love food! Not to sound conceited or anything, but you must know that I have the best smile. Even though my knees aren't what they used to be, I love to run around and dance- especially for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! And don't worry, I will never let you forget when it's time for my meals. I have some fury roommates that I have allowed to nap along side me. We all coexist nicely. We share some of the same interests like food and naps. I am a very polite dinner guest; I will wait patiently until my roommates look away from their bowls to clean them. My roommates sometimes want to play with me so I let them keep trying and I will not be weak and give in . Remember, I am a princess, so I will only accept your offer if it comes with an inside only gold membership. I can be a little grumbly at first, but it is only so I can test your limits (to see if you can handle all this diva). Once you pass my tests I'm totally snuggly and loving. I am absolutely darling, and quite possibly, the cutest chihuahua in the entire world!

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.
