Alberta Wildfire - Associate Vet Clinics Offer Free Boarding

Select Associate Veterinary Clinic (AVC) hospitals in Edmonton and Calgary are offering free boarding for pets of families impacted by the Fort McMurray wildfire.

Boarding assistance at participating hospitals is based on availability. Pets should be current on vaccinations, but if they are not, AVC veterinarians will update vaccinations free of charge.

AVC Hospitals will also offer a free health assessment exam for pets that have been displaced as a result of the fire.

“Our hearts go out to all of those who have been impacted by the Ft. McMurray fire disaster,” Robert Pakai, Sr. Regional Operations Director, Alberta for Associate Veterinary Clinics, said in a release.

“As I travelled today throughout Calgary to the clinics picking up donations from our clients and clinic team members, it was evidently clear the passion our teams have for helping people make pets’ lives better.”
