The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Bradshaw Animal Shelter is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Bradshaw Animal Shelter’s mission is to provide public safety and protect the health and welfare of animals in our communities through education, responsibility, and compassion.

Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.

“We will be using the grant through Teaching Everyone Animals Matter (TEAM), our 501C3 non-profit affiliate to help the ill and injured animals that come to our shelter,” said Dave Dickinson, Director of Sacramento County Municipal Services. “This grant will help animals that need extra medical care before being deemed adoptable.”           

“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Bradshaw Animal Shelter,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”

In 2018, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000.  Lyon’s Agent Support Center chose Bradshaw Animal Shelter to be the recipient of their grant.
