VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by the Valley Wildfire in Lake County

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 Valley Fire in Lake County, northwest of Sacramento that has
destroyed homes and caused evacuations.

“Our thoughts are with the many families who continue to be impacted by
this and the other wildfires in the area,” 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
