VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Northern California Wildfires

EL DORADO & PLACER COUNTY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VCA
Animal Hospitals
announced that select VCA hospitals in Northern
California are offering free boarding assistance for small animals,
including dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets, to families who are
impacted by the many wildfires burning in the area, including the Trail
Fire or Trailhead Fire.

“Our thoughts are with the many families who are being impacted by these
wildfires,” said Art Antin, Chief Operating Officer of VCA Animal
Hospitals. “We are extending free boarding for family pets that have
been displaced by these fires so families can feel confident their pets
are safe and focus on their priorities during this critical time.”

Boarding assistance at participating Northern California VCA hospitals
is based on space availability. Pets should be current on vaccinations,
but in case they are not, VCA veterinarians will update vaccinations
free of charge. VCA Hospitals will also offer a free health assessment
exam for pets that have been evacuated or displaced as a result of the
fires. Pet owners are encouraged to contact the American Red Cross or
any one of the following VCA hospitals for boarding assistance and more
information.
