Pet store holds Come Clean for Cancer fundraiser
Pet Valu is donating all proceeds from its self-serve dog wash stations to the Animal Cancer Foundation on May 14-15. The fundraiser, Come Clean for Cancer, will be held at all locations that have dog wash stations, including Dunkirk, Leonardtown and Brandywine in Southern Maryland.
The foundation develops and supports research that advances the prevention and treatment of cancer for people and pets.
Since 2014, Pet Valu’s Come Clean for Cancer fundraiser has raised over $22,000 for ACF.
“We hope to increase public awareness of pet cancer with our third annual Come Clean for Cancer fundraiser,” said Joe Dent, vice president and U.S. general manager for Pet Valu. “Cancer can play such an active role in our lives and it is important to be fully aware of this problem not only for us, but also for our pets.”
The store provides all the supplies needed at its self-serve dog wash stations. Amenities include shampoo, towel service, an apron, treats, professional high velocity dryers and an elevated tub with easy access steps.
The stations are open during store hours and cost $10.
