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.

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!

T.E.A.M. (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter)
February 22 is National Walking the Dog Day! This day combines two of the most happy-making things we have in this life: dogs and exercise. Humans love walking with their four-legged friends, and pooches love their strolls with their people. So grab your walking shoes, a leash, and some treats for the road, and take your favorite pooch for a stroll to celebrate National Walking the Dog Day!Our favorite activity on this list is number 3. Head on over to @bradshawanimalshelter if you need a walking buddy!#nationalwalkingthedogday #bradshawanimalshelter #adoptadog @ Bradshaw Animal Shelter ... See MoreSee Less

T.E.A.M. (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter)
Finn had a successful surgery Tuesday, thanks to your support and generous donations to our fundraiser! His foster (also a TEAM board member), Brooke, picked him up last night! She reports: “He's resting comfortably at home. He is already over the recovery period and keeps trying to play with his foster sister, SSPA/Bradshaw alum Stella, and the cats. (It's gonna be a loooong 8 weeks!) He's eating and drinking well. As you can see from the photos, he now has bionic abilities, and shouldn't try to go through a metal detector anytime soon. He's so thankful to the community for funding his surgery!”Along with the medical staff, T.E.A.M., his former SSPA foster and his current foster, you all made this possible and ensured Finn has a bright, pain-free future to look forward to!!! We can’t thank you enough for all you do to support our community’s dogs and cats who are most in need!! It means the world!!#sspa #bradshawanimalshelter #fosteringsaveslives #team4bradshaw #team4animals #sacramentoanimalshelter #supportyourlocalshelter #animalsinneed @ Bradshaw Animal Shelter ...

Update on June!June’s surgery took place on 12/29 and was a success. Once they opened June’s knee they recognized that the lesions were filled with scare tissue and there was no need to debride. She did have a partial tear on her meniscus that they cleaned up and performed a tplo. She was not using the leg which the vet said would be the case for a week due to significant swelling. There will be a follow-up appt but vet feels confident that soon she will be up and walking and quality of life will be drastically improved - fabulous news! The go fund me completely covered her surgery, so fabulous news there as well. Thank you to all who donated!Bradshaw Animal Shelter SSPA - PB SOC ... See MoreSee Less

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!
