T.E.A.M. (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter)

URGENT: Call to Action, please help up share this post far and wide, the Bradshaw Animal Shelter is at CRITICAL CAPACITY and we need the public's help in spreading the word that we are in dire need of fosters/rescues/adopters! The shelter is so over capacity that they are housing dogs in the barn and many animals are doubled up in their facilities.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: If you know of any local rescues or friends/family who are willing to foster, please share this and have them contact the shelter for details. As the 4th of July weekend is upon us, it is critical that we make room in the shelter ASAP. We often see an increase in animals being brought to the shelter during the 4th of July holiday due to loud fireworks displays - animals escape out of fear, and eventually make their way to us as strays. We need room to house them until they can be reunited with their family.

Thank you in advance,

Bradshaw Animal Shelter
You already know we are WAY over capacity, so where are we stashing all these sweet furry friends until you come to adopt them? We are getting very creative. But we’re running out of extra rooms - next up, every employee will have 2-3 animals at their desk - so we really need your help!

Free adoptions through June 30th!

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!
