We strive to use your donations for the best good and provide our budget breakdown freely and for your information as you consider the best organization for your charitable contributions.  Contributions to TEAM in any amount will help fund many important projects designed to benefit the animals at Bradshaw Shelter.

Sponsor An Event

By sponsoring a TEAM event, friends of animals throughout the Sacramento area (and beyond) can make a difference to the health, well-being and placement prospects of the animals at Bradshaw Shelter.  On behalf of the more than 12,000 animals we will assist this year through our programs, THANK YOU for your thoughtful consideration of our request of sponsorship!

We are excited to announce that 102 cats, 66 dogs, 5 rabbits, and 3 ducks were adopted during our July 4th adoption promotion! If you missed the waived fees, don't fret.

What a great way to give back!**Update 6/28 10 am: Both sessions have now filled up. Please email ingridc@saccounty.net to be put on the wait list.

**Update 6/27 4:00 pm: due to overwhelming response, the earlier session has now been closed. 8:00-9:30 is still open**

Fireworks are scary for our shelter dogs, too! You’re invited to join shelter volunteers the evening of July 4 to hang out in the kennels and give company and comfort to our dogs during the hail of bangs, pops and squeals of outside festivities. We’re inviting you to come read, talk, sing, or even play soft guitar to our pups! There will be two comfort sessions; 7:00pm to 8:30pm and 8:00pm to 9:30pm. Teens 12 and over are welcome, but each child must be accompanied by an adult (Example: two children in a family must have two adults as well)

Our Vision

What We Do


Provide and encourage public support of Bradshaw Shelter.  Assist Bradshaw Shelter in supporting licensed rescue organizations.  Provide education to the citizens of Sacramento County on the humane care and treatment of animals to reduce cruelty and suffering of animals.


Increase the number of lost animals redeemed by encouraging permanent identification of animals, educating the public to look at the shelter for their pets, and through coordination with other shelters, lost and found services, and the media.

Eliminate Euthanasia

Assist in improving the quality and number of adoptions from Bradshaw Shelter through grooming and behavioral testing of animals, promoting the welfare and supporting the medical needs of shelter animals, improving the adoption facilities and, advising the public of animals available for adoption, thereby helping to decrease the number of animals euthanized by Bradshaw Shelter.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Each year more than 12,000 animals end up at Bradshaw Shelter. Most are discarded by their owners or lost, and many are impounded by shelter staff because of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Significant numbers arrive at the shelter unaltered, sick or injured, and funding for veterinary care and supplies is limited. That’s why there’s TEAM.

Spread the Word

We are a small non-profit organization and are rather new to the social media world.  You can help us build our following by sharing our information with your friends!  The bigger our following, the bigger the benefit to the animals of the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter!
