Veterinary students from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine spent this last weekend working in the biannual Community Dog Bath.
For $10, dog owners could have their dogs washed, and for an additional $5, they could have their dogs’ nails trimmed and ears cleaned.
“It’s just a fun day,” Will Culver, a first-year veterinary student and one of the event organizers, told The Roanoke Times. “The class spends time doing community service washing dogs, and then we try to give community members something out of it, too, by just taking care of things.”
More than 100 students helped washed a whole range of dog breeds, from beagles to Labradors to huskies. The event is one dog owners look forward to, the Roanoke Times reports.
Proceeds from the event went to the DVM Class of 2019 and the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
