Dog washes to raise money for animal causes
Do you have a hot, dirty dog? Head for a local dog wash, where volunteers will get your dog clean and cool for a donation that 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.
