Summer dog wash each Saturday in Bel Aire

Does your dog need a bath? Leave the dirty work to volunteers and help a good cause by taking your dog to the Retain summer dog wash.

Every Saturday between 1 and 4 p.m. through Sept. 7, weather permitting, volunteers will shampoo, rinse and towel off dogs for a requested donation of $4 for a small or medium-size dog and $5 for a large dog.

Proceeds from the dog wash, held outside Heartland Animal Hospital, 4100 N. Woodlawn in Bel Aire, go to Responsible and Ethical Treatment of Animals in Neighborhoods, a local group that helps pay for spay and neuter surgeries for pets whose owners can't afford them.
