Retain wraps up dog wash, seeks garage sale donations

From 1 to 4 p.m., volunteers will shampoo, rinse and towel off dogs for a fee of $4 for a small or medium-size dog and $5 for a large dog.

Proceeds go to help Retain, or Responsible and Ethical Treatment of Animals in Neighborhoods, pay for spay and neuter surgeries for pets whose owners can't afford them.
