Does your dog need a bath? Take your pet to the Retain summer dog wash, where volunteers will do the dirty work and your money will go to a worthy cause.

Proceeds 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.
