D.O.G.S of Vernon is holding its 11th annual Vernon Dog Wash on Sunday, July 23, 1-4 p.m., at the Vernon Fire House on Route 515.

Pups can get a bath ($10); a nail clipping ($13); or the full "Spa Treatment"; wash and nail clipping ($20).

Low-cost microchipping will also be provided onsite by a veterinarian from Advanced Veterinary Care in Franklin ($45). Visitors must pre-register and pre-pay for microchipping. All proceeds benefit the Vernon Dog Park, an off-leash park that provides local dogs with the exercise, socialization, and mental stimulation they need to be happy and healthy companions. Run by local nonprofit D.O.G.S. of Vernon, the park depends on donations and generosity of patrons, citizens and local vendors to maintain the park facilities.
