Humane Society of South Mississippi holds Blessing of the Pets ceremony

The Humane Society of South Mississippi hosted their annual Blessings of the Pets Ceremony to send well wishes to all the animals.

Many of the dogs were brought outside to receive some play time and a blessing from Father Dominic Pham, a pastor at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in D’Iberville.

Blessing of the Pets has been a tradition at the Humane Society for many years. Along with blessing the animals outdoors, the animals inside the shelter were also blessed. Father Dominic Pham said, “I think it’s just to learn and appreciate and respect the animals. It’s just a decent thing. God has given us animals to serve our needs in various ways. We thank God for the animals. I have a lot of pets too. So, I love animals. I love to learn about animals. It’s just very beautiful. The more you learn about animals, the more you learn about God in a way.”

Animals at the Humane Society of South Mississippi are always looking to be adopted.
