Pet Wash.

24-Hour Roadside Pet Wash

$5 for 5 minutes, includes shampoo-rinse-condition-flea-tick, blow dry, vacuum and disinfect. Bring cash because though they accept card, it's a $20 minimum, and that's likely more than you'll need. Located in front of a stocked pet supply shop only open during normal business hours. Clean and very useful! Water gets warm, but dryer is not hot.

Alpha-Dog Pet Wash.

24-Hour Roadside Pet Wash

Great roadside attraction for a long I-80 ride.

[Carl G., 06/11/2017]

Appreciated by cross-country canines of any breed.

24 Hour Roadside Pet Wash

A 24/7 pet wash that works like a self-service car wash or laundromat. Cash buys you wash time, minimum cost $5.00. It's right off the highway and looks like a glass-walled roadside laboratory with all kinds of hoses and buttons. I met the owner; nice guy! He gave our dog a treat.

[B Mann, 01/06/2015]

A handy stop for travelers with pets (mostly dogs, we'd guess) in need of a bath.
