More than 200 animals were blessed at the 2009 event and 12 local rescue groups participated. Any group that would like a free booth to provide information and/or showcase animals currently available for adoption should contact Beth Williams at 750-5087 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 1. Tables and chairs will be provided, but participants should bring their own shade structures.
Any group that is unable to participate but would like to display information or fliers/pictures of animals ready for new homes, deliver them to Williams or to the church by Sept. 13. Donations of money or toys to benefit shelter animals will be accepted at the blessing.
