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 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.

YSDADA Shelters Pets From The Camp Fire At YS Fairgrounds
At the request of Yuba County OES, we set up a shelter at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds on Friday, Nov. 9th. We saw a large influx on Saturday; a few came from Butte Oroville Veterinary Hospital evacuating dogs out of an abundance of caution, as well as many dogs brought in by owners staying at the Fairground or in the area. We also have had a few dogs rescued by good Samaritans and brought to us. As of 8 AM 11/12/18 we had 57 dogs. We can scale up to 100 dogs. The shelter is open from 8 AM to 8 PM although it is staffed around the clock. Our trained volunteers are being helped by convergent volunteers – kind people who come by to see if they can help walk dogs, clean cages, set up crates, organize donations, and help out in other ways. The community has been very generous with donations of dog supplies, which we are very useful to those staying in their vehicles. As we did last year with the Cascade Fire, any supplies left over when we close the shelter will be given to those people whose dogs leave the shelter, local animal control, and other community organizations.
What would be most helpful would be cash donations, either through PayPal, through their button below, or sent to YSDADA, P.O. Box 3563, Yuba City, CA. 95992. Gift cards would also be welcome. Not all of the expenses for the organization are covered by FEMA via Yuba County OES: duplicating, storage, etc. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3); our EIN # is 55-0830073.
