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!

What an incredible event put on by the merchants of Historic Folsom! We were grateful to be included (although crazy wind kept us from having our adoptable dogs at the event). Thank you to our supporters who purchased tickets to attend. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to TEAM to help fund special medical needs for the animals at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter.

This month, our amazing volunteers have partnered with T.E.A.M. (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter) to host a stocking drive adding joy and holiday cheer to our shelter. The goal is to have a stocking stuffed with toys and treats for every adoptable shelter pet in hopes to send them “Home for the Holidays” in the month of December (or sooner)!

Many of our volunteers, local students, and teens from the community are already working hard to hand sew and decorate hundreds of holiday stockings that will be hung on each shelter kennel/habitat. If you’d like to participate, we are asking for quality toys and treats for dogs, cats, rabbits and any other furry friends that may come our way (hamsters, guinea pigs, etc.).

There are several ways to help:
1. Donate toys or treats
2. Make a monetary donation
3. Sponsor adoption fees

Some examples of quality treats and toys can be found below, as well as our Critter Outfitter inside the shelter:
• Bully Sticks: www.chewy.com/bones-chews-curly-bully-stick-7-10/dp/130524
• Dental Chews: www.chewy.com/bones-chews-all-natural-dental-chew/dp/170000
• Cat Toys: www.chewy.com/cat-is-good-pounce-on-it-gift-pack/dp/186328
• Rabbit/Hamster/Guinea Treats: www.chewy.com/oxbow-timothy-club-carrot-small/dp/123707

If you are donating physical items like toys or treats, please send them to our address below or bring them in during open hours along with any sponsored fees. Monetary donations can be done online now at team4animals.org (please note the donation is for the "stocking project").

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!
