Yuba Sutter Domestic Animal Disaster Assistance (YSDADA) works jointly with governmental, non-governmental, and private agencies and organizations and the public in the Yuba-Sutter area to promote the safety and well-being of domestic pets and farm animals affected by a governmentally-declared disaster.

We provide these animals with emergency shelter, necessary veterinary care, and identification for reuniting animals with their owners. All volunteers have completed disaster preparedness training provided by YSDADA and other organizations.

Our public outreach program furthers awareness of animal needs in a disaster, and educates agencies and the public about the importance of being prepared.

Potluck In the Park

Many long time volunteers joined us to honor our veterinary advisor, Dr. Loretta Dean, as she retired from service to YSDADA. The first woman to graduate from UCD Veterinary School, Dr. Dean was an early and ardent supporter of YSDADA, attending drills and advising us. People brought both hot and cold dishes, and many hot dogs were enjoyed. People who hadn't seen each other since the deployment at Wheatland High School this past February were able to chat and catch up on news.
