Unbelievably adorable Alfredo (A772674) really deserves to find a home!!! Just look at that face!!! 🥰😍. . .Via @bradshawanimalshelter Alfredo needs your help! Please share! 👐 My name is Alfredo and I’m a handsome, 7-year-old brindle #boxer mix. I’ve been in and out of the shelter since 2019. Not only is it hard emotionally to handle shelter life, but I also had ACL surgery, got an infection, had dental surgery, and had kennel cough...all of which I am now all clear of! I’ve experienced loneliness, isolation and I kinda lost myself along the way. I’m not perfect, I have some quirks, but hey, who doesn’t? I was started on some meds to help me, because sometimes I get a little anxious and preoccupied with things. I feel a lot better and calmer now. Bradshaw shelter is full, and I really need a place to call home, one or some special understanding people, and to be accepted for who I am, (my little quirks and all). I should be an only dog in a big person home, so I can take my time decompressing, to breathe, to learn to know what it means to live outside of a shelter. Please come meet me or share my video! 📲 To schedule an adoption appointment, please call the adoption line at (916) 875-2287 Tuesday-Sunday. To foster me, please email Bradshaw’s foster team at now!#bradshawanimalshelter #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #shelterdogsofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #teachingeveryoneanimalsmatter #adoptme #adoptable #adoptables #fosterme #fosteradog #shelterdog #pet #pets #petsofinstagram #boxermix #sacramento #sactowndogs #rescuepetsofsacramento #dog #dogs #dogsofinstagram ...

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!

Upcoming Events


Dec 1st - Giving Tuesday

ALL DAY 24 hour online fundraiser

Your gift on #GivingTuesday 2020 will help support T.E.A.M. and the animals of the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter!


May 6th, 2021 - Big Day of Giving

Each year, thousands of animals end up at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter. Most are discarded by their owners or lost, and many are impounded by shelter staff because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. A significant number arrive at the shelter unaltered, sick or injured, and funding for veterinary care and supplies is limited. That’s why there’s TEAM (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter)!
