VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Displaced by Flooding in Central Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa.--()--VCA Animal Hospitals announced that select VCA hospitals in central Pennsylvania are offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including dogs, cats, and birds to families who are impacted by the flooding and rising rivers from the heavy rains.

“Our thoughts are with the many families who are being impacted by this major flooding,” 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 Pennsylvania 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 Hospitals will also offer a free health assessment exam for pets that have been evacuated or displaced because of the floods.
