The parking lot behind ReThinc Advertising, 4714 N. 44th St., will once again host a charity dog wash on Saturday, April 8. This year’s event will benefit a special no-kill shelter for homeless pets.

Residents from all over the Valley are invited to bring their dogs from 9 a.m. to Noon, to get scrubbed and toweled off for a great cause. ReThinc Advertising hosts a safe environment for dogs, provides clean water, organic shampoo, treats and more for your furry friends. Dog parents can enjoy complimentary bagels, coffee and pastries while volunteers wash their pups. There also will be a silent auction for your chance at great items including tickets to great events, autographed sports memorabilia and other exciting prizes. All washes are done on a donation basis with anyone donating $20 or more receiving a free promotional gift. For more details, visit

All proceeds benefit Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue, a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to finding loving, life-long homes for displaced Labrador Retrievers. This years’ event beneficiary was chosen in loving memory of ReThinc’s own “Lando,” who always greeted visitors with enthusiastic barks and kisses.
