AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VCA
Animal Hospitals
announced that select VCA hospitals in Central
Texas are offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including
dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets to families who are impacted by the
Bastrop County wildfires that have endangered hundreds of homes and
forced families to evacuate.

“Our thoughts are with the many families in Central Texas who are being
impacted by the wildfires,” 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.”

Boarding assistance at participating Central Texas 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.
