VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Displaced by Southern California Fires

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#vcacafirereliefVCA
Animal Hospitals
announced that select VCA hospitals in southern
California are offering free boarding assistance to dogs and cats, and
other species to families affected by the fires in both Ventura and Los
Angeles counties. The Hill Fire and the Woolsey Fire have forced
thousands of mandatory evacuations in Thousand Oaks, Camarillo and
Malibu.

“These raging fires have impacted countless families, many with pets who
need to find shelter,” said Art Antin, Chief Operating Officer of VCA
Animal Hospitals. “VCA hospitals in the area of the fires are extending
free boarding for pets, so evacuated families can focus on their most
pressing priorities.”

Boarding assistance at participating southern California 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 due to the Hill and Woolsey
fires.

Affected pet owners who need help boarding their pets are encouraged to
identify a hospital near them and call for boarding availability at this link.
