VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Oroville Dam Evacuations in Northern California

SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#specialtyhospitalVCA
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, for families who are being
displaced by the evacuation orders due to the damaged Oroville Dam
emergency spillway which could potentially flood Oroville and other
towns in Yuba, Sutter and Butte counties.

“Our thoughts are with the many thousands of families who are being
impacted by these mass evacuations,” said Art Antin, Chief Operating
Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals. “We are extending free boarding for as
many pets as we can accommodate so families can be assured their animals
are safe and be able to focus on their priorities during this critical
time.”

Boarding assistance at participating northern California area 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 will also offer a free health
assessment exam for pets that have been evacuated or displaced due to
the Oroville Dam evacuation orders. To check availability for boarding
assistance, visit www.vcahospitals.com/main/directory
or call 1-800-VCAPETS.
