Pet Blessing 2020 Hosted by Furry Hearts in Cebu

Pals, both two-legged and four-legged gathered at Escario Central Mall last Sunday, February 9 to have some fun and have the pets blessed officiated by Father Jun and Dr. Jess of Cebu City Pound, and initiated by Furry Hearts. By the way, Furry Hearts is a newly formed company operating online which sells pet supplies and accessories in Cebu City. The motivation of this company is to fuel rescuing of stray cats and dogs in the streets of Cebu. In addition to the pet blessing, it was a PAW-fect opportunity for animal lovers and rescuers to meet each other. About 50 people were expected to bring their cats and dogs for this event! The dogs had a wonderful time romping around meeting each other before the event began, while the cats tried to feel comfortable, embraced by their fur mamas and dadas.

The event began with a warm welcome from the two head J’s (Joan Fabe and Joan Alcudia) who both thanked the pet owners for coming to the event. The people make themselves and their pet comfortable. Afterwards, the official introduction of Fr. Jun, the program proper began. Fr. Jun even mentioned the story of Noah’s ark and the great flood in a reading from the book of Genesis, where the animals took part in the salvation during the great flood. Fr. Jun also shared some history about St. Francis of Assisi with the group. St. Francis is the Patron Saint of Animals because of his love for all creatures. He even wrote a Canticle of the Creatures, which was an ode to God’s living things. “All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures,” St. Francis wrote in the canticle.

After the ceremony, there were some fun games which everyone took part of. We also grabbed some snacks from Shawarma Gourmet. The shawarma is one of the best authentic Lebanese foods you could ever find here in Cebu! The two J’s wrapped up the evening by thanking everyone again for coming.

Part of the proceeds of this event goes to the TNVR program of Cebu City Pound. Each successful registration will sponsor one stray cat/dog to be spayed or neutered. The event was a huge hit! Thank you everyone for contributing to this success!

I have never heard of a pet blessing before but it looks like it was a well planned out event. I love their reason for it. Hopefully all the furry pals will make it off the street and into loving homes.

This is such a great event for socializing and make connections among animal lovers. I wish they have it in the USA as well.
