CARE Dog Wash

Get Your Canine Cleaned After a Day at the Beach


There’s nothing like a warm bath after a day of play at the beach — especially if your ears are full of sand, you have tar on your paws, and your fur smells like seaweed. Which would make you a dog. But canines need cleaning too (although they may not agree), and when better to get a scrub than before hopping into the car to head home? That’s why CARE4Paws is having a Dog Wash at Hendry’s Beach this weekend. Folks can sit back and relax as CARE volunteers pamper your pooch — and raise funds for the nonprofit, whose mission is to keep pet overbreeding and reduce the number of critters in area shelters. Sunday, October 27, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Hendry’s Beach. For more information, call 968-CARE (2273) or visit care4paws.org.
