Lather and lattes

If you like coffee and you have a dog you can grab a latte and lather up your pup this weekend at a local Starbucks.

Southwest Oasis Labrador Rescue recently rescued nine purebred English Labradors from an Arizona breeder who could no longer care for them. Some of the dogs are suffering from parasites, valley fever and heart worm.

SOLR also took in more labradors from a Texas and New Mexico shelters. The rescue is providing care for all of the dogs and placing them in foster and adopted homes. SOLR is teaming up this weekend with the Starbucks on 9525 E. Old Spanish Trail to hold a dog wash and raise money for mounting vet bills. Velvet Bow dog grooming is also offering nail trims and ear cleaning for a donation to SOLR.

The event is Saturday, November 16th, from 8:30 a.m. until noon. Donations can also be made through Southwest Oasis Labrador Rescue’s website or Facebook page. An anonymous donor will match all of the donations made for this event.
