Donations requested

From the church bulletin:

For safety reasons, all animals MUST be on a leash, in a kennel, or in a cage. Every pet attending the ceremony will receive a special blessing, a prayer sheet, and a beautiful medal to commemorate the event! Please bring one or more donated items for our parish animal shelters and local rescue groups, some of which are being forced to turn
away animals due to lack of funds. Suggested donations include: High nutrition dog or cat food & treats, toys, bedding, blankets, towels, leashes, collars, dog houses/kennels,
and of course monetary donations. Gently-used items are gladly accepted. If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to make a donation, please contact me to make
arrangements at: dee.ardonne@coxwalker.com

The space available for each vendor will be 10’x10’. We are still in the early stages of developing this event.
