'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.'

PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP FILE PHOTO - Dogs and other small animals displaced by Oregon's wildfires may be able to find free boarding at VCA Animal Hospitals around the region. (These dogs were not displaced by the wildfires.)VCA animal hospitals of Los Angeles said Thursday, Sept. 7, that the company's 17 Oregon locations would offer free boarding for dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets to families who had to flee their homes because of the state's dozens of wildfires.

Pet owners whose lives have been disrupted by the wildfires can contact the American Red Cross, visit www.vcahospitals.com/main/directory, or call 1-800-VCAPETS to check availability for boarding assistance.

"Our thoughts are with the many families who are being impacted by these devastating wildfires," said Art Antin, VCA Animal Hospitals' chief operating officer. "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."

Oregon VCA hospitals will take displaced animals as space is available. VCA Battle Ground Animal Hospital and VCA East Mill Plain Animal Hospital in Southwest Washington are also offering free boarding.

Pets should be current on vaccinations, but in case they are not, VCA veterinarians will update vaccinations without charge. VCA will also offer a free health assessment exam for pets that have been displaced because of the fires.

VCA Animal Hospitals operates more than 750 small animal veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada.
