Wag Hotels Offering Shelter for Evacuating Californians’ Pets

A state of emergency has been declared due to the devastating wildfires burning across the state of California. To help alleviate the pressures many pet parents may be feeling, Wag Hotels is proud to offer free pet boarding to anyone in our communities that have been forced to evacuate their homes. All nine locations across Northern and Southern California will house cats and dogs in need of overnight care for free for up to 7 days.

“Our hearts are with the thousands of people who have been displaced during this already difficult time,” said Mike Griggs, Chief Operating Officer. “We understand firsthand how important it is to know that our pets are safe and cared for when our own lives are thrown into chaos. All of us at Wag Hotels are proud to be able to serve our animal-loving community at this time.”

Since 2005, Wag Hotels has made it a priority to support the first responders that serve our communities by providing a fun and safe environment for their pets – while their owners are hard at work keeping everyone safe. All of Wag Hotels’ 9 locations across the state offer an ongoing discount special on Daycare and Boarding services to firefighters, EMT’s and police.

Wag Hotels is here to take care of your cats and dogs by providing them a safe and comfortable place to stay with caring associates attending them 24/7. Our accommodations include bedding, food, and walks during their stay.

If you or someone you know needs shelter for their pet as a result of fire displacement, please call 888-WAG-LINE.
