Free Boarding for Pets of SE Flood Victims

Hospital group offers free boarding for pets affected by Southeast floods

"...VCA says its hospitals in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and North Carolina will board animals free of charge for families who were forced from their homes because of recent flooding. The Atlanta area has been particularly hard-hit, with rainfall totals in some areas reaching 20 inches. Georgia's flood-related human death toll reached nine, six of them occurring in Douglas County west of Atlanta.

"The pet-boarding assistance is on a space-available basis at participating VCA hospitals, both in the Southeast and in California. Owners can call local VCA hospitals in advance to ensure that the facility has space available. A list of all VCA Animal Hospitals can be found here."

Aksum Notes: My heart goes out to the people here in Atlanta affected by the flood. I hope this helps some of them. Three Pets Are People Too veterinary hospitals are part of this animal hospital group. Go to the link and put in your zip code, or go to your state listing. Amazingly, it is raining hard AGAIN here!
