Farmington Pet Valu event benefits animal cancer group

Pet Valu, with a store in downtown Farmington, will host a May 11-12 dog wash benefit for the Animal Cancer Foundation (ACF), a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer in pets and people.

The company will donate proceeds collected from its $10 self-serve dog-wash stations to ACF during its “Come Clean for Cancer” fundraiser. Last year, the pet retailer’s more than 300 locations raised more than $60,000.

The dog wash stations come with shampoo, towel service, aprons, treats, professional high velocity dryers, and an elevated tub with easy access steps.

The Farmington store is located in the Downtown Farmington Center, 23320 Farmington Road.
