Bellaire United Methodist Church will host its 11th annual Blessing of the Animals from 1-3 p.m. today (Saturday, March 25) on its front lawn at 4417 Bellaire Blvd.
Humans of all faiths can bring their friendly and properly controlled pets — everything from dogs and cats to hamsters, reptiles, birds and fish — to receive an individual blessing from a pastor. The moment will be captured in a free digital photograph provided by Nikky LaWell Photography.
Pets must be leashed, in a protective carrier, fish bowl or terrarium to be brought on the premises for the blessing.
The family-friendly event will also feature displays and interactions with local experts and pet-related businesses and a meet-and-greet with adoptable pets from Golden Beginnings Rescue, Westie and Scottie Rescue, Pug Hearts of Houston, Rescued Pets Movement, and Citizens for Animal Protection.
