The Butler County Animal Response Team will hold a fundraising dog wash and microchipping event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 9 at Rose Hill United Methodist Church, 19551 SW Butler Road in Rose Hill.
BuCART team members will be washing dogs for $10. Proceeds will be used to purchase supplies for the team’s disaster response trailer. Disaster preparedness information for pets and their families will be available.
Alex’s House Dog Rescue will microchip pets for $15. Proceeds will go to Alex’s House, a nonprofit rescue group in Rosalia.
RETAIN seeks garage sale items
The summer dog wash put on by RETAIN continues on Saturdays in Bel Aire, with volunteers bathing pets for $5.
The dog wash, from 1 to 4 p.m. outside Heartland Animal Hospital, 4100 N. Woodlawn, will be held every Saturday through Aug. 30, weather permitting.
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.
The group is also accepting items for its annual garage sale, which will be Sept. 25-27 at 615 S. Roosevelt in Wichita. People can bring items – no clothing, please – in good, clean, usable condition to the dog wash or call Jerry McKee at 316-682-2249 or arrange for pickup or to make a tax-deductible donation.
