Is Fido looking a little dirty lately? Give him the “spa” treatment at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine Feb. 4, when veterinary student members of Project Heal are holding a dog and car wash fundraiser, in conjunction with the Life South Community Blood Centers.

Donate blood while Fido gets a free preventive examination, a bath and nail trimming and in return Life South will provide a free gift and cholesterol screening.

Dog baths and car washes will be available for a $6 donation or a $10 donation for both. For more information about Project Heal, which involves students from all the UF Academic Health Center colleges, visit

Hope to see you then!
