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!

Meet Pepper! 🌶This sweet (not spicy) girl came to us in July 2021 and is due to receive a much-needed dental surgery funded by our friends at T E A M Bradshaw! Pepper is a 5-year-old pibble who is very loving, happy, and squishy. She loves getting out for walks and playing with both 2-legged and 4-legged friends. This girl's smile is infectious and she’s one of our most photogenic pups up for adoption right now. In fact, she's in need of a foster-to-adopt home! To meet this special sweetheart, please make an appointment with our adoption staff by calling, 916-875-2287. The appointment phone lines are open Tuesday-Sunday from 9:30am to 3:30pm (closed Monday and holidays). Be prepared to give the shelter representative my animal ID number. The phones get busy, so if you don’t get through right away, keep trying. We’re working hard to provide each potential adopter with excellent customer service!Learn more at petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=SACC.A753643.Want to help shelter pets in need like Pepper?

Happy 🐶 Pit Bull Awareness Month 🐶 from the marvelous Miss Stella! Stella (formerly known as Cannoli) was terrified and shut down at Bradshaw Animal Shelter, but SSPA met her and knew that she was a special girl who just needed someone to show her that the world wasn’t a scary place.For over a month, she was too afraid to let anyone come close or to even leave her kennel, but they didn't give up. Finally, Stella gained enough trust in humans that she was able to be fostered by the amazing Brooke. (Spoiler alert: she never left!) #fosterfail Today, she’s a super sassy sweetheart who likes romping around on the beach, hiking, taking long naps, and eating all the snacks.👉🏼 If you’re looking for a sign to foster or adopt a pittie, this is it. ✨ They just need a chance. ❤️#pitbullawarenessmonth #pitbulladvocate #ilovepitties #pitbullsofinstagram #fosteringsaveslives ...

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!
