This is what SDIA was founded on, and continues to be our primary continued service opportunity. When a natural disaster strikes, teams of skilled Sheep Dogs and other volunteers are deployed to provide immediate “impact assistance” to devastated communities.

Our Disaster Response Teams provide help through tree and debris removal, muck-out operations, covering roofs & windows, distributing food & water, and other meaningful tasks.

If you are interested in deploying on an SDIA Disaster Response Mission, please email

(NOTE: We respectfully request that you become a registered Member or Volunteer with us prior to deploying. Visit our Membership page to join.)
