Humane Society of South Mississippi hosted ‘Blessing of the Pets’
October is Blessing of the Pets Month and the Humane Society of South Mississippi took part in the action today with well wishes for the animals under their care.
The staff brought many of the facility’s dogs outside this afternoon for some fresh air and to receive special prayers and blessings from Father Dominic of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in D’Iberville.
Blessing of the Pets has been a tradition at the Humane Society for a few years now and employees say it is a fun time for all involved.
Development Director Katie King says the blessing represents the hope that these animals will soon find new loving homes. “Any extra blessing they can get in order to find their new forever homes is a really big help, so we’re really appreciative.”
HSSM is monitoring the weather and will make a final decision tomorrow on whether to reschedule their tailgate party benefit set for Friday.
