Bradshaw Animal Shelter
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.

TEAM has been "Teaching Everyone Animals Matter" for nearly 20 years. From the beginning, TEAM has supported the Bradshaw Shelter by funding special veterinary care for the shelter animals and by supporting the volunteers and staff who work tirelessly for the animals. TEAM has also made public education about animal issues a top priority. Urging the public to "Always spay, always neuter, always ID, always adopt a shelter pet," this message remains at the heart of TEAM's work. TEAM's primary function is to raise money for its Special Medical Needs Program, which funds specialized veterinary care and treatment for injured and neglected animals surrendered to the Bradshaw Shelter. Program funding also provides medical equipment and supplies for the shelter's on-site surgery facility.
TEAM's special medical needs program helps fund services and procedures that are beyond the scope of the County. For example, TEAM has funded consultations with veterinary specialists for Shelter animals. TEAM has also provided funding to enable animals to receive procedures from outside facilities such as UC Davis that are able to provide highly specialized care. These animals with unique medical needs that may otherwise have been euthanized are able to be adopted to loving families and live long and healthy lives."
