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, whose families have been evacuated from their homes due to the devastating King Fire. The blaze about 60 miles east of Sacramento has burned approximately 199 square miles and is threatening 12,000 homes.

“Our thoughts are with the families in Northern California 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 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. Pet owners are encouraged to contact any one of the following VCA hospitals for boarding assistance and more information.
