LOS ANGELES, May 21, 2013 - VCA Animal Hospitals announced that select VCA hospitals in Oklahoma are offering free boarding assistance for small animals, including dogs, cats, birds and pocket pets, whose families have lost their homes or are among those evacuated due to the devastating tornadoes in the state.

“Our thoughts are with the families who have been impacted by this disaster and we are extending free boarding for small family pets that have also been displaced,” said Art Antin, Chief Operating Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals. “We want families to know that their pets can be cared for in a safe environment while they take care of family issues and manage their personal priorities.”

Boarding assistance at participating Oklahoma 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 call the nearest VCA hospital for boarding assistance and more information.

The following VCA hospitals are offering free boarding to displaced small animals:
