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

SANTA ROSA, Calif. & REDDING, Calif.--()--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 due to the many wildfires burning in the area, including the Rocky Fire, Wragg Fire, Point Fire and China 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.
