Pet owners and pet lovers are invited to join Special Pals for their annual Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 7. This custom is conducted each fall in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all the earth’s creatures, on two legs and four.
Minister Lynn Turner, head of the Special Pals Compassion Committee and owner of Weddings Performed, will assist in blessing each of the homeless animals at the shelter.
Pet owners can also receive a blessing for their loved ones when bringing a donation of dog or cat food to assist the Fort Bend Seniors AniMeals on Wheels program. For the Special Pals shelter supplies wish list, please visit: http://specialpalshouston.org/?page_id=135
