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!

SAVE THE DATE: #BigDayofGiving is May 2, 2019!

One year ago, this little miracle arrived at the shelter in dire need of medical attention. We were immediately contacted (as the shelter’s non-profit) and were able to get him the help he needed. With your generosity, TEAM was able to raise more than $12,500 for his surgery and aftercare.

This year, you're invited to help save more lives with Big Day of Giving on May 2. Stay tuned for Thomas (now Otis) updates and details about the pets that are still thriving because you helped make a difference through giving.

What a sweet kitty! #team4animals #team4bradshaw

Repost from Bradshaw Animal Shelter using @RepostRegramApp - Who ever said cats don't like water? 😂🐱🐟💦
Mae (A758170) was caught drinking water from the faucet by one of our volunteers this week, which she clearly loves! This beautiful calico can be shy at first but within a couple of days will get use to her new environment. She is outgoing, loveable and enjoys sitting on laps. Right now she's in our Catfe with another cat, however, we think she'd prefer to be your only feline friend. Mae's adoption fee is SPONSORED and she's ready to go home Visit her at 3839 Bradshaw Road! .

Perfect example of what we do, and where your donations go! Congrats, Thomas aka Otis!Happy Save-a-versary, Thomas (aka Otis)!

One year ago, Thomas was brought into the shelter by a kind woman who found him in the middle of the street. He was very malnourished, fighting for his life and in dire need of brain surgery.

With the help of T.E.A.M. (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter), shelter vet staff, his foster family, volunteers/staff, the community, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and his #fureverfamily...Thomas (now Otis) is healthy and enjoying life!

"Otis is doing GREAT!! He actually recently gained back reflexes in his left eye, this is a huge development! At his last neurologist appointment, he had no reflexes in his left eye. He does still circle (a problem he will have due to his neurological deficits) but he no longer circles out of frustration or stress and more excitement and play! He LOVES to run! He would run all day in the grass if he could, and sometimes he does. He is not a fan of the rain but does swim in the summer as long as mom and dad and brother are in the water too. He has a brother, Jax, and they are pretty much inseparable. Most of the day they are running around playing chase or tug of war or “boxing” as we call it in our house. He’s a big boy now, 65 pounds and comes up almost to our knees and ALL muscle. He is a little bit of trouble maker, he will steal treats off the counter and take them to his couch and eat them all before you even notice. He’s also tall enough to reach the top shelf where all treats are and he figured that one as well! He’s a trickster, playful puppy. He does have some residual PTSD we believe as we as sometimes afraid of loud noises and he growls vigorously if picked up. We are working on behavioral modification to help him with these behaviors. He is in a loving home and with a doggie mama and daddy who don’t mind his complete lack of awareness of personal space, he will literally lay on your face if you let him. We are eternally grateful for each and every last person who helped save him. Our family is complete with him."

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!

Upcoming Events


Oct 6th - Whiskers & Wine
