VCA Animal Hospitals is offering free boarding assistance for pets that have been displaced by the large wildfires burning across the state of Oregon. The Beachie Creek, Lionshead, and Holiday Farm fires are posing a threat to life, safety and property and have forced residents to evacuate in nearby communities.
"Our Oregon hospitals are here to provide free boarding assistance to pet owners so they know their pets are in a safe and caring place while they attend to their priorities," said Dr. Todd Lavender, President, VCA Animal Hospitals and Petcare Services. "We understand how stressful it is dealing with the fires during a pandemic and we are here to help."
