Pet blessing at Concord sanctuary
People are welcomed to bring dogs on leashes and cats in proper cat carriers and any other pets properly contained. Dogs must be vaccinated and have current rabies vaccine.
It is not necessary to have a pet present for the blessing. People can bring a photo of their pet if they wish.
Dave Nethery, deacon at St. Noel’s in Willoughby Hills, will preside over the blessing.
There is no fee connected with this event in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, but a free will donation of cat food or scoopable litter for the 280 cats residing at the shelter would be appreciated.
For more information, call Judie at 440-449-3496.
