During this non-denominational event, animals in attendance will be blessed. Members of the community without pets are also welcome to participate in the celebration.
“We recognize that animals are like family. Our blessing honors animals of every shape and size. We’ll bless animals who have found their forever homes and say a prayer for those animals who have been abandoned, lost or mistreated,” Humane Society of Vero Beach Assistant Development Director Jennifer Downes explained.
