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.

Do you know what to do now?

Preparation is the key to protect your family and domestic animals.

Visit our preparedness page to learn how you can prepare to evacuate yourself and your animals safely.

Don't wait for disaster to strike to figure out what to do next.

Psychological First Aid for Animal Disaster Workers

If you work at an animal shelter or a vet's office, or if you deployed with YSDADA during last winter's disasters, such situations can be very draining, especially over time. There are steps you can take to stay balanced and mentally healthy during stressful periods. Come to a workshop given by Debbie Knight, Licensed Clincal Social Worker, at the Red Cross Office, 2125 E. Onstott Rd., Yuba City, 95991. The workshop begins at 6:30 PM and is free and open to all.
