TEAM has been “Teaching Everyone Animals Matter” for 24 years. From the beginning, TEAM has supported Bradshaw Animal Shelter by funding special veterinary care and by supporting the volunteers and staff members 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.
Since it's inception, TEAM has raised over $1.8 million in donations that directly over 3,200 animals at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter.
TEAM’s primary function is to raise money for the Special Medical Needs Program, which funds specialized veterinary care and treatment for injured and neglected animals surrendered to Bradshaw Animal Shelter. Program funding also provides medical equipment and supplies for the shelter’s on-site surgery facility.
Moving forward, we hope to expand our reach and further support even more animals in need throughout the Greater Sacramento region! A few of our goals are to promote community vaccine, microchipping, and spay/neuter clinics as well as to fund resources so animals can remain in their homes to avoid them being surrendered to the shelter or rescues.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year, on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
