Dirty dogs give pets with cancer a second lease on life

Be a part of the dog wash with a difference!

Be a part of the dog wash with a difference! Residents are asked to join dog lovers from across the province to help pets struggling with cancer.

On Saturday, May 11, starting at 9 a.m. Woofs & Purrs in Sylvan Lake will be washing dogs to raise funds for the Animal Cancer Therapy Subsidization Society (ACTSS).

Last year alone, this event was able to raise over $10,000 for animal cancer treatment.

To ensure that there is room for every pet, it is recommended that dog owners call and book an appointment (403-887-4000).

Treating cancer in a beloved pet is expensive and often financially beyond many pet owners’ means. Without treatment these pets die or are euthanized prematurely. ACTSS is dedicated to bringing affordable modern veterinary cancer treatment to patients and educating animal owners and veterinarians of the availability, uses and benefits of advanced cancer therapies.
