17th annual Community Dog Wash Press Release

Community Dog Wash
North Grafton, MA, August 12, 2011

The public is invited to bring their leashed and vaccinated dogs to the 17th annual Community Dog Wash sponsored by students at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, August 21, outside the school's Franklin M. Loew Veterinary Medical Education Center (building D on the campus map).

Intended to introduce first-year students to other classmates as well as give pet owners an expert hand with sprucing up Fido, the event is organized by members of Tufts' Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA)—a non-profit student organization at Tufts' Grafton, MA, campus. Proceeds will be split between the Travis Fund, which assists pet owners in paying for their pets' care, and the Cummings School's student organizations overseen by SCAVMA.

Dog owners can opt for a dog wash for a suggested donation of $8, or a nail trim for a recommended $5.
