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!

Dogs can display behaviors in shelters that they wouldn’t display in typical household environments. Some are extremely fearful, but this behavior can change once they leave the shelter. Some do not “show well” in their kennels when you walk by and may bark or lunge, but when they are taken out, they are different dogs. Others may seem disinterested in people when you spend time with them in a yard, but it’s only because they are excited to sniff the grass after spending their entire day in a kennel.Give them a chance. Give them time. ❤️Thank you to Central Coast Herding Dog Rescue for pulling Cooper (FKA Zane) from Bradshaw Animal Shelter, helping him thrive in foster care, and finding his forever home! ❤️ ...

You may remember Drake (FKA Draco)! He was rescued from Bradshaw Animal Shelter by One By One Rescue Project and he is now available for adoption. ❤️Drake is a 2 year old Staffy boy who is around 65 lbs. He has a beautiful and unique gray brindle coat and is stunningly handsome. He is UTD on vaccines and is neutered. Drake is house trained and learning to love his crate. Drake does fine being left alone in the home but does prefer being with people.How is he with strangers? 🧍‍♂️Very friendly with strangers.Does he like toys? 🧸Drake loves toys! He's great with them too. He doesn't guard them or have any issues sharing, he just thinks you are playing with him.Does he like water? 💦Drake loves water. He like to lay in the lake and tries to go for swims when taken for hikes.Skills 🐾 Drake can sit, shake, and lay down when asked. He is also quite a skilled sprinter. He has learned to stay out of the kitchen and off furniture. Ideal home 🐾 Drake would do best as the only pet in the home. He would be best with an experienced and active dog owner and older kids/teens. His ideal home would have time to exercise him daily or maybe someone with a treadmill who can train him to use it. He needs to be an inside dog who is part of the family and who has adequate time to spend with him.✨ For more info and to apply to adopt: Doyle Photographyhotography ... See MoreSee Less

Rollo says happy fall! 🍂🍁Rollo (A812306) has been at Bradshaw Animal Shelter since May and his adoption fee is currently waived. He has a gorgeous brindle coat and enjoys getting out for walks, sniffing around the shelter play yards, and rolling around in the pools. He appears to prefer hard toys over plushy toys. He knows sit and is treat motivated, which should make future training together fun!Rollo is approximately 2 years and old and weighs 60 lbs. Please stop by the shelter this weekend at 📍3839 Bradshaw Rd in Sacramento and ask to meet Rollo! ... 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. You can help us build our following by sharing our information with your friends! The bigger our following, the more we can support the animals of the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter and other 501(c)3 rescues in the Sacramento Area!
