Bring your pets to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Francis, the patron of animals, at our 4th Annual Blessing of the Pets.

Join us for a free outdoor event at the shelter on Sunday, October 1, 2023, featuring special guests Pastor Mark McAnlis and Reverend Denise Sawyer.

The event is open to people and pets of all faiths.

Each participant will receive a prayer card and St. Francis medallion.  A pet boutique (including people swag too) will be on site, as well as a photo station.

Dogs must be on a leash at all times (no retractable leashes). Cats, critters and other pets must be in a carrier.
