TEAM is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation formed to help improve the health, well-being, and adoption prospects of shelter animals at Sacramento County's Bradshaw Animal Shelter. TEAM has been "Teaching Everyone Animals Matter" for 25 years. From the beginning, TEAM has supported the Bradshaw Shelter by funding special veterinary care for 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 organizes and participates in fundraising, public awareness activities, and service projects designed to generate support for shelter animals and related programs.
