VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Dog Head Wildfire in New Mexico

Animal Hospitals
announced that select VCA hospitals in Albuquerque,
New Mexico are offering free boarding assistance for small animals,
including dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets to families who are impacted
by the Dog Head wildfire that has endangered hundreds of homes and
displaced families.

“We know how challenging it can be finding hotels that will allow
families to stay with their beloved pets, and want to ease that burden
by providing free boarding for family pets,” said Art Antin, Chief
Operating Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals. “Hopefully, families can have
peace of mind that their pets are safe at VCA and they can focus on
their priorities during this critical time.”

Boarding assistance at participating Albuquerque area 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 and also offer free microchip scanning to reunite lost pets with
their families.

Additionally, VCA Hospitals will also offer a free health assessment
exam for pets that have been evacuated or displaced as a result of the
fires. Pet owners are encouraged to contact the American Red Cross or
any one of the following VCA hospitals for boarding assistance and more
