ACC doctors washing a dogIf you and your dog are out and about on Saturday, June 2, we have the perfect activity for you! You can have one of our doctors wash your dog at Animal Care Clinic ™s annual fundraising dog wash! Our community service team, œPaws For the Cause , will be participating in the American Cancer Society ™s Relay for Life. Relay for Life is a 24-hour team event that raises money for cancer research and patient support. Relay is not only the American Caner Society ™s biggest fundraiser, but also an excellent forum to honor cancer survivors and remember those we have lost to this horrible disease. Animal Care Clinic has participated in Relay for the past 7 years! Paws For The Cause has a goal of raising $10,000 and our dog wash on June 2 should provide at least 10% of that goal! From 10am-2pm we will wash your dog in exchange for a donation to the American Cancer Society. While your pooch is pampered, enjoy some amazingly delicious home baked goodies. You can even pick up a treat for your dog, donated to the cause by The Barkery. We also owe a big thank you to Mission Linen Supply for donating all the towels and laundering!

Come join us at San Luis Obispo ™s Relay for Life on June 30 at Santa Rosa Park. Come learn about cancer in people and our pets. The survivor ™s celebration begins at 9am. You can come visit œPaws For The Cause  all day long!

If you can ™t come on June 2, but your dog needs a bath, come check out our self-service dog spa during our normal business hours: Mon-Fri 7:30-6, Sat 9-3, and until 8pm on Mondays.
