The St. Thomas Episcopal Church blessed animals — including stuffed animals.
Pet lovers celebrated their furry companions at the St. Thomas Episcopal Church's pet blessing on Saturday, Sept. 21.

Law enforcement horses and canines were are also part of the event.
Goolsby said pet blessings build partnerships and invite people to the church property.
