A congregation of four-legged friends gathered this weekend at the Mills River Presbyterian Church.

Dozens came-out for the annual Blessing of the Pets Saturday afternoon.

Their loving humans spoke about the ways pets enrich lives. Pastor Randall Boggs spent time with each animal, offering a blessing, even honoring pets that have gone before us.

Pastor Randall Boggs, Mills River Presbyterian, "relationships are important not just between people and between people and God but it involves all of creation and that involves the other creatures in our lives and they play an important part emotionally."

The Blue Ridge Humane Society also came-out with dogs for adoption and collected donations to benefit that program.Blessing of the Pets
