EVENT CANCELLED – All Creatures / Adoption Event and/or Pet Blessing
With mindful consideration for the animals this event has been cancelled due to the threat of inclement weather tomorrow. We all want to ensure the safety of those little paws.
Tomorrow May 6 event cancelled.
Typical Questions and Answers:
Is there any charge for this event?
Absolutely not! Whether you’re an animal agency or animal lover, it’s free of charge and open to all the public. It’s our gift to the community.
Do you have a lot of adoption agencies attend?
Yes. Please know that we try to get representatives from different breeds as well as the SPCA. You may have to fill out an application at this event in order to be approved for adopting your new family member.
What is the Animal Blessing service?
It’s an outdoor celebration located on Compass Christian Church’s expansive lawn area with representative animal agencies of the community, and refreshments. The highlight of the service is when people bring their animals forward to be blessed, receiving a special “blessing tag.” If your pet doesn’t travel well bring a picture of your pet and we’ll bless it.
Why are animals blessed?
Because God created them and declared them “good” (Genesis 1:25), and because for many people their pets mediate unconditional love and are a blessing to those who love and care for them. This service recognizes and celebrates this reality.
What kinds of animals are welcome?
All kinds! Dogs, cats, birds, pygmy goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, parrots, snakes, turtles, iguanas and even squirrels! You and your beloved pet, of whatever persuasion, would be warmly welcomed! For your pet’s safety, we advise leashes for dogs and any other species must be caged at all times.
Do you advertise the event?
Yes. We advertise through Facebook promotions, Craigslist, Other Social Media and we also ask that our members put up flyers.
