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!

Beatrice had her TECA-BO (Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy) surgery on Friday. They kept her overnight and she recovered so well that she was able to go home with her foster yesterday!We are awaiting biopsy results, but it’s possible that she will need radiation to fully get rid of lingering parts of the mass that were too risky to cut out. We will keep you updated on her journey! Her foster says Beatrice was really excited to see her post-op and is healing well!Thank you to everyone who donated to help make her care possible, and thank you to Wendy for being the best foster! 💓 ...

‼️ Max Manhattan (A795857) needs a committed adopter or a 501c3 rescue by Wednesday, August 10 at 3 p.m. ‼️He is available for general adoption and you can visit Bradshaw Animal Shelter at 📍3839 Bradshaw Rd. in Sacramento, CA from 12pm - 5pm all weekend to meet him. No appointments are necessary and adoption fees are waived every weekend in August. Believe it or not, Max came to the shelter in May 2021. He passed his behavioral evaluation with flying colors and was put up for adoption—and he was even adopted! Unfortunately, his adopter was dealing with difficult life events and could not keep him. This was not Max’s fault: his adopter even stated what a wonderful dog he is and was heartbroken to not be able to keep him. 💔Max was brought back in March of 2022 and he has struggled with shelter life. He is a good boy and favorite among volunteers! He just needs one person to give him a chance. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home. Our shelter is full. If you have ever thought about adopting or fostering, now is the time. Please open your heart and home to save a life. If you cannot adopt, please share this post. ❤️#shelterdog #rescuedog #sacramento ... 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!
