LAFAYETTE- Pets, some dressed in costumes, are now blessed after leaving Holy Cross Church this morning.

Paws and Paw Paws hosted the event where the faithful were able to bring their pets to the church to be blessed.

Aside from the main event, pet owners had the opportunity to get their pets microchipped with the help of Acadiana Vet Clinic.

Animals available for adoption from Animal Rescue Foundation were also there.

Attendees had a chance to win some door prizes as well.

The director of the event, Nancy Fawcett, was excited about the turnout.

“We had over two hundred people that attended. We had dogs, cats, turtles, even a horse outside,” she said.
