VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Texas Tornadoes

Animal Hospitals
announced that select VCA hospitals in northeastern
Texas are offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including
dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets to families who are impacted by the
severe weather and tornadoes that caused fatalities and injuries,
destroying homes and displacing families.

“Our thoughts are with the many families in northeastern Texas who have
been seriously impacted by these tornadoes,” said Art Antin, Chief
Operating Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals. “We are extending free
boarding for family pets that have been displaced so families can feel
confident their pets are safe and focus on their priorities during this
critical time. With local area shelters at capacity, VCA is also housing
pets for the Garland and Rowlett animal shelters.”

Boarding assistance at participating northeastern 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
tornadoes. Pet owners are encouraged to contact the American Red Cross
or any one of the following VCA hospitals for boarding assistance and
more information.
