Pet store holds Come Clean for Can­cer fundraiser

Maryland Independent - - Business -

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.
