BLACKSBURG, Va., March 31, 2010 – Veterinary students enrolled in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine will hold a community dog wash on Saturday, April 10 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus.

The cost of a dog wash is $10 and for an additional $5 customers can have their dogs' nails trimmed and ears cleaned. Animals will be washed on a first-come, first-served basis. Dogs will be washed while owners wait. Dogs must be on a leash, and be at least five months old with current vaccinations.

The event will be held at the rear of the veterinary college complex. Signs on Southgate Drive and Duck Pond Drive will guide participants to the event and ample parking will be available behind the college.

The dog wash is sponsored by the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, a professional organization for doctor of veterinary medicine students, and the veterinary college’s Class of 2013.
