FREE SERVICES and MORE for CA Fire Victims

I live in CA, and am luckily up north.  I am fortunate that my friends and family in So Cal are safe.  I have been receiving a lot of info regarding services, benefits, and more, and wanted to share them with you all.  Hopefully, you can share this info in kind, with those you know who are in need, or maybe can take time to donate or volunteer with these efforts.  Continue beyond the fold, please…

Starting with Free Pet Boarding:

VCA Animal Hospitals Offers Free Boarding for Pets Affected by Southern California Fires hoc-news. de/Aktie/ 127…3/SOUTHERN .html hoc-news. de/Aktie/ 12717634/ News/13829613/ SOUTHERN. html

VCA Animal Hospitals announced today that local SOUTHERN California VCA facilities are offering free boarding for companion animals whose families have been evacuated or displaced as a result of the current firestorms.
Conveniently located VCA animal hospitals will provide a safe environment for pets that have been affected by the fires through November 5, 2007, on a space available basis.

As thousands of families are being evacuated to shelters or facing the loss of their homes, VCA hopes to ease their burden by offering free boarding for pets so they can focus on the critical issues with their families and homes, said Art Antin, Chief Operating Officer of VCA Animal Hospitals.

Boarding assistance for pets is based on space availability at individual VCA Animal Hospitals throughout Southern California.
