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!

🥰😍 Mary Ann (A794948) at @bradshawanimalshelter is SUCH A SWEETIE!!! Sadly, her owner passed away and she found herself at the shelter at 12 years old. Now she takes every opportunity to soak up and spread love while awaiting her forever family!! She’s outgoing, super sweet and affectionate, talkative and gentle! She even likes to play with toy mice! Please note: She has hyperthyroidism, which has a few options for treatment, one of which is relatively inexpensive. This sweetheart truly deserves an amazing home - and she’ll brighten up your life, too!📲 Ready to make her a family member? Call the adoption appointment hotline at 916-875-CATS (2287) between 9:30 and 3:30 pm Tuesday-Sunday!!!#team4bradshaw #teambradshaw #teachingeveryoneanimalsmatter #pet #pets #petsofinstagram #purr #sheltercat #seniorcat #seniorcatsofinstagram #sacramento #sactowncats #rescuepetsofsacramento #adoptme #adoptable #adoptables #adoptdontshop #sweet #adorable #cat #kittycat #kitty ...

Happy #seniorsaturday!!Meet incredibly adorable 15-year-old (!!) Hercules (A581249), available through Bradshaw Animal Shelter!! He’s a personable little guy. He seems to spend a lot of time napping, but when called, he is always ready for a walk. He could stand to lose some pounds to be at his healthiest! He seems to get along with other small dogs as well as people. 📲 If you think Hercules could be your new best friend, please call Bradshaw’s adoption hotline: 916-875-2287. The appointment phone lines are open Tuesday-Sunday from 9:30am to 3:30pm. #teambradshaw #team4bradshaw #teachingeveryoneanimalsmatter #adorable #seniordog #seniorpet #seniorpets #cute #pet #pets #petsofinstagram #smalldog #sscramento #rescuepetsofsacramento #sactowndogs #dog #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogoftheday ...

Sweetie Pie (A795672) certainly lives up to her name!! Isn’t she the cutest mini-panther?! She so deserves to find her forever loving home!!!. . .Via @bradshawanimalshelter:It's #FelineFriday and Sweetie Pie is looking for a new forever home. 2-year-old Sweetie Pie came to us after being rescued by the fire department who responded to a burning apartment unit. While Sweetie Pie was unharmed from the fire, unfortunately her former owner perished. Sweetie Pie is an outgoing, social, loving, affectionate lap kitty who would make a great addition to any type of household, whether you are a first time pet owner, cat-savvy owner, live alone, or whether you have a large rambunctious family.📲 If you believe you can give Sweetie Pie a loving forever home, please call the adoption by appointment phone number at (916) 875-CATS (2287) between 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays! #bradshawanimalshelter #teambradshaw #team4bradshaw #teachingeveryoneanimalsmatter #pet #pets #petsofinstagram #petstagram #petsagram #purr #blackcat #blackcats #adoptacat #adoptdontshop #adoptable #adoptables #adoptme #sacramento #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #catoftheday ...

Check out this extended cat family that ended up at @bradshawanimalshelter! They’d love to go home in pairs (or more)!! . . .Via @bradshawanimalshelter:The (kitty) force is strong at Bradshaw! 💫✨Luke Skywhiskers, Obi Paws Kenobi, Paw Solo and 11 other cats and kittens recently arrived to the shelter after being abandoned at a local vet hospital. All appear to be 1 of 3 generations of the same family and likely lived together. Now they are in desperate need of loving forever homes and would prefer to be adopted in pairs (or more), if possible. They range in age and temperament from 6-month-old spunky adolescent kittens to 2-year-old friendly or shy cats. You can view each of their videos and bios at saccountyshelter.net or through the link in our bio, then navigating to View Adoptable Pets. Adoption fees are $50 per cat or $75 for a pair. If you would like to adopt a kitty sibling or two, please call the adoption by appointment phone number at (916) 875-CATS (2287) between 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays to Sundays. You can find their ID numbers at bit.ly/bradshawadoptables 👐 PLEASE SHARE THIS POST to help these kitties find forever homes!#teachingeveryoneanimalsmatter #teambradshaw #team4bradshaw@starwars #bradshawanimalshelter #sheltercatsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #shelterkittensofinstagram #starwars #theforceisstrongwiththisone #adoptme #adoptus #adoptable #adoptables #adorable #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #kitty #kittycat ...

Our Vision

What We Do

Education

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.

Reunite

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!
