Last few Saturdays for RETAIN dog wash

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 the procedures.

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 to arrange for pickup or to make a tax-deductible donation.
