7 Hot Weather & Summer Pet Safety Tips: bit.ly/2QTEQUl

Heat can be deadly for your pet. Cats and dogs do not have the ability to sweat; they cool their bodies off by panting and through the pads of their feet, so when the weather is extremely hot it is much harder for your pet to cool off. Here are some tips for keeping your pet safe this summer:

• Never leave your pet in a parked car (bit.ly/2XGJMOM)
​• Avoid ​extreme heat​
​• Use sunscreen
• Don’t take your pets to crowded summer events
​​• Secure your pet during transport
• ​​​Use pet-approved life jackets in and around water

Meet Catrina! She is 70 lbs of love and about 3 years old. Our friends at SSPA - PB SOC report that she is one smart cookie who is eager to please her people, and thrives on mental stimulation. She enjoys being by your side rather than on your lap, and her adoption fee is only $25!

Though she is doing well now, when Catrina first arrived at the shelter, blood was found in her urine and she wasn't feeling great. Luckily, our medical team acted fast to x-ray her. Radiographs showed a huge bladder stone approximately 2 inches long…ouch!

Bladder stone removal surgery would typically cost upwards of $4,000, but our medical team was able to perform the surgery in-house – saving Catrina from infection and complications.

Without donated medical equipment and our amazing medical team, surgeries like Catrina’s and many others could not be done in-house. Let's hear it for #TEAMWork, #TEAMBradshaw!!!

Interested in adopting Catrina? Come visit her at the shelter or apply for adoption counseling via email at sacramentocountydogs@gmail.com. Interested in helping shelter pets, but can’t adopt? Donating is a great option to #SaveLives and details can be found at www.acr.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!

Oct 6th - Whiskers & Wine
