St. Francis of Assisi loved all of God’s creatures and his feast day, which is October 3rd, is traditionally used for blessing of animals. The public is invited to bring their pets to be blessed and have a great time learning about how to Care, Adopt, Neuter.

Last year, 300 people attended and had their animals blessed by the parish priests, saw dog exhibitions by D&D K9 Concepts and the River City Weight Pull Club, information tables by San Antonio Big Dawgs, the San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition, AAPAW, and Alamo City Bully Breeds United.

The San Antonio Big Dawgs led a dog walk with the parishioners and neighbors who brought their dogs with them.

The Animal Care Services (ACS) Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic was on-site and provided 21 free spay/neuter surgeries. They will be on-site again this year—appointments can be made by calling 210-207-6653.
