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!

What does TEAM do? We provide resources to pets who need it most! Medical assistance is one aspect of what we do, but we also sponsor training support and behavioral modification.This is Jane Eyre (A806743)! Jane is not yet adoptable. She is in foster care because she was having a hard time at Bradshaw Animal Shelter and was very fearful. Fortunately, she not only has an awesome foster to work with her and get her ready for her forever home, but TEAM sponsored training sessions with trainer Kay Gramm!Although Jane was very shut down and scared at the shelter, she is slowly blossoming with the help of a loving home environment and positive training. Her foster says that she loves her daily walks—that’s where she shines! She currently still struggles with eating uninterrupted, because sounds can scare her and send her into flight mode. However, she has already made progress with being curious about new people instead of hiding from them, and she loves lounging by her foster mom’s feet while she works all day.To us, this is what rescue is all about: spending a little bit of extra time, love, and care on pets that need it the most. ❤️Stay tuned for an update on Miss Eyre!#fosteringsaveslives ...

Boop! How has Max (A806738) not found his people yet?! He walks well on leash and has become a volunteer favorite! He loves treats and already knows "sit" and "shake." Max would prefer a calm, adult-only home. While he has previously coexisted with other dogs during playgroups, he may appreciate being the only dog in the home. He is approximately 3 years old and weighs 77 lbs.Visit him at Bradshaw Animal Shelter this week from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. (but not today; the shelter is closed on Mondays!). #adoptdontshop #boopmynose ...

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
