Make a Donation

To be successful, TEAM needs both financial and volunteer assistance from the community. 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!

Meet Shirley (A749660). She was ABANDONED by her owner in the MIDDLE OF THE STREET! Luckily, a wonderfully kind person found her and she was taken to the shelter.

She needed IMMEDIATE medical attention for what could have been a fatal situation. T.E.A.M. stepped in and funded her medical needs and she was treated at an offsite veterinary hospital. Today, Shirley is fully recovered and ready for her #fureverhome !

Interested in adopting Shirley? Visit Bradshaw Animal Shelter at 3839 Bradshaw Road.

Thank you so much to everyone again for an incredible night at #WhiskersandWineSac we raised more than $70,000 because of your generosity! This can provide a whole day of critical care for 140 of the most vulnerable animals. Princess and her best friend want to say thanks to all of you with tail wags and sloppy kisses.

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!
