PetValu to host pet cancer fundraiser
Pet Valu, located in the Merritt Park Shopping Center, will hold its annual Come Clean for Cancer fundraiser Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 in honor of Pet Cancer Awareness Month (May). During this fifth annual fundraiser, all proceeds from self-serve dog-wash stations will be donated to the Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF), an organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer by funding research and increasing public awareness of comparative oncology, the study of naturally-occurring cancer in people and pets.
Pet Valu stores nationwide have raised more than $107,000 for ACF since launching the fundraising effort in 2014. Last year, the pet retailer raised $56,407 for the nonprofit.
“The success of the Come Clean for Cancer Fundraiser is a testament to the generosity of our customers year after year,” said Joe Dent, chief store operations officer for Pet Valu.
