CSPCA Holds Dog Wash to Raise Needed Funds in Laval

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - June 22, 2005) - In collaboration with sponsors Mondou, the Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CSPCA) is pleased to invite dog owners to bring their dogs to a fund raising dog wash at the CSPCA Laval's shelter located 975, Bergar Street in Laval (Chomedey) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 25, 2005. The Canadian SPCA now has the animal control contract for Laval. We are excited to be an even bigger part of this city! The Dog Wash is a great way to invite the citizens of Laval and surrounding communities to learn about our many services and to adopt an animal! Funds raised from this event will go towards upgrading the Canadian SPCA shelter in order to ensure the best possible living conditions for our four-legged friends.

A minimum donation of $10 is requested for a dog wash. There will be professional groomers on site for ear and eye cleaning for $4 as well as nail clipping for $5. SPCA volunteers will be on hand to help manage the event. The event will be cancelled in the event of rain.

All media are welcome to attend this event.
