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.
