VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Virginia Tornado

April 18, 2018

VCA Animal Hospitals announced that VCA Boonsboro Animal Hospital in Lynchburg, Virginia, is offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets to families who are impacted due to the recent tornado in the area.

“Our thoughts are with the many families who are being impacted by the tornado,” 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 VCA Boonsboro Animal Hospital in Lynchburg 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 displaced.
