 One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

The Bradshaw Animal Shelter again teams up for the Empty Our Shelters Project, October 17-19. For this one weekend, pet adoptions are just $20. A goal of adopting 500 animals to loving homes has been challenged for this intensive effort by Sacramento County, Yolo County, Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

Last year, our area shelters found 526 animals permanent homes in three days and were nationally recognized by the ASPCA. The County’s Bradshaw Animal Shelter stood out with the most adoptions – 179! With unending desire to help animals and a good dose of competitive spirit, the Bradshaw Shelter hopes the community will once again come together to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for shelter animals.
