Press release: VCA Animal Hospitals

VCA Animal Hospitals are offering free boarding assistance at hospitals throughout California for pets that have been displaced by wildfires across the state. As of October 28, more than a dozen fires are burning in California. The Getty Fire in Los Angeles and the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County have already forced thousands of families from their homes.

“In catastrophic emergencies, VCA is here to help pet owners quickly find a safe and comfortable space, and know their pets are well cared for,” said Dr. Todd Lavender, president, VCA Animal Hospitals and Petcare Services. “With multiple fires burning across the state, all VCA hospitals in California are extending free boarding so families can focus on the emergency.”

Boarding assistance is offered on a space-available basis to victims of the wildfires at all California hospitals. To locate a nearby VCA hospital, enter your zip code here.

Due to the extent of the evacuation orders and impacts, boarding availability may be limited at some VCA facilities. Families are strongly encouraged to call ahead and confirm that space is available.

VCA is closely monitoring the wildfires across the state and its impact on pet families. Follow VCA Animal Hospitals on Facebook for breaking wildfire news as it happens.
