ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VCA Animal Hospitals announced that select VCA hospitals are offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets, to families who are impacted by a dangerous southern California wildfire. The Canyon Fire, which started on the border of Orange and Riverside counties, was raging overnight as firefighters continued trying to save hundreds of threatened homes in an evacuated neighborhood.

“Our thoughts are with the many families who are being impacted by these devastating wildfires,” said Art Antin, Chief Operating Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals. “We are extending free boarding for pets that have been displaced by the fires so families can be assured their animals are safe and be able to focus on their priorities during this critical time.”

Boarding assistance at participating southern 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. VCA will also offer a free health assessment exam for pets that have been evacuated or displaced because of the fires.
