RETAIN dog wash today in Bel Air

Got a dirty dog? Let volunteers do the work while you help a good cause at the RETAIN summer dog wash.

RETAIN, or Responsible and Ethical Treatment of Animals in Neighborhoods, will hold its next-to-last dog wash of the summer from 1 and 4 p.m. today. Volunteers will shampoo, rinse and towel off dogs for a requested donation of $4 for a small or medium-sized 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 help pay for spay and neuter surgeries for pets whose owners can't afford them.
