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!

Whiskers and Wine Update:

We have postponed Whiskers and Wine 2019 to Spring of 2020. Date, location and details to be announced soon! We had some miscommunication with the new venue and the costs were significantly higher than initially presented. In order to bring you a quality event that puts the most money back into helping shelter animals, we decided that we needed to postpone. Our 2020 event is going to be better than ever!!

In the meantime, we have created a new, family friendly event called Small Town, Big Hearts to take place on October 5th at Safetyville USA, right next door to the shelter. We really hope you can join us at this event as we hope to make up for many of the donations we receive at W&W.

If you can't attend but would like to donate money or raffle items, please message us for more info!

This sweet pup! What a story!! She needs your help. Read on for more info. You can donate at team4animals.orgMeet Cricket! ❤️🐾

This 3-month-old was brought to us after being purchased in a parking lot back in August. When she first arrived she was very lethargic (near comatose) with diarrhea, vomiting and hypoglycemia. She stayed in our donated ICU unit for 4 days before going to a foster home where she would receive around-the-clock care due to her hypoglycemic condition.

While in foster care, Cricket refused to eat so our vet staff placed a nasogastric (NG) tube on her and her foster fed her specialty critical care liquid every 3 hours.

Cricket is now successfully eating more solid food and her NG tube has been removed. Though she won't be up for adoption anytime soon, we thought we'd share Cricket's story because she's such an adorable little fighter whose gone through so much in just 3 months of life!

Cricket is an example of one of the many shelter animals who come to us in such critical condition. With the help of the community, our donors, non-profits, staff, med unit, fosters and volunteers we are able to give the best care to all our shelter animals.

If you are interested in helping shelter pets like Cricket but aren't able to adopt, foster or volunteer, donations are a great way to make a difference. To check out all the ways you can make a difference, visit animalcare.saccounty.net/MakeaGift/Pages/default.aspx.

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!
