Veterinary students enrolled in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine will present a community dog wash on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus.

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 cost of a dog wash is $10 and for an additional $5 customers can have their dogs' nails trimmed and ears cleaned.

Presented semi-annually by doctor of veterinary medicine students enrolled in the college, the dog wash is always a popular community event and animals will be washed on a first-come, first-served basis. However, no appointments are necessary. Dogs will be washed while owners wait. Dogs must be on a leash, and be at least five months old with current vaccinations.
