And 'furr'ever homes for a host of cats and dogs, but in particular eight ktitens.

The Warner Robins branch of the Macon Purrs N Paws organization, told the Tri-County Monitor this weekend that they were running what they call a "red bow" special on adoptions on these special kittens from now until December 24.

Hawkinsville Church Holds Blessing of Animals Event

Hawkinsville Church Holds Blessing of Animals Event

This is the time of year when Catholic and Episcopal churches are participating in the annual  blessing animals to celebrate the feast day of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals.

According to The Very Rev. Gary Abbott, Sr., rector of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, “it is just a day to recognize these special animals.” Chances are you've heard the term "pet blessing," but aren't sure what it entails (no pun intended) or what the purpose is. Well, the simplest way to describe a pet blessing is: A spiritual celebration to honor our loyal companions who love us unconditionally.
