The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) Renfrew County Branch held a Dog Wash and Barbecue on June 18. Puppies were bathed by volunteers before getting their nails done and their fur dried. The services were provided by Ontario SPCA volunteers, Doggy-Do’s Pet Grooming and Spaws For Paws. The event also highlighted the upcoming Friends for Life Walk-a-thon on Sept. 25 and their No Hot Pets campaign. The next Dog Wash will be held on Aug. 25.
