Pets bless their owners every day with unconditional love. Now, PAWS Humane wishes to bless them in return. The public’s furry, feathery, or even scaly loved ones are welcome to be blessed alongside the orphans of PAWS Humane. In partnership with Trinity Episcopal Church, PAWS Humane will be holding its 3rd Annual Pet Blessing Saturday, October 1st, at its facility, located at 4900 Milgen Rd in Columbus, Ga. The pet blessing begins at 5 p.m. Special hours of operation for October 1st are 12-7 p.m. Pets must be on a leash or in a crate at all times.

Staff, volunteers and supporters at PAWS Humane hope the pet blessing will also drive more adopters to the shelter. PAWS Humane is bursting at the seams with dogs, cats and kittens. Every one of them deserves a home, just like the animals that will come with their families for the blessing. All dogs, over the age of 6 months, will be available for $25 for the entire month of October, in support of National Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month. To view a list of the animals available for adoption at the shelter, visit www.pawshumane.org.

In addition to the blessing, we will have Screen on the Green to follow. Beginning at 8 p.m., we will be showing Homeward Bound outside. We invite everyone to stick around and have a date night with your furry family. Please bring blankets and lawn chairs for the movie. Also, we will have a food truck here for snacks.

    Dream job: First feline pirate.

    Most lovable trait: Attentive and Interactive.

    About me: I’m a two-year-old Domestic Shorthair kitty that LOVES attention. I was surrendered to PAWS because my owner became ill, so I’m a bit confused of my surroundings. I like both dogs and cats, and even children too! I’m very smart and will come when you call my name. Can you give me the new start I long for?

    About me: I’m a two-year-old beautiful Pit-Bull mix that is desperately searching for my home. I have been with PAWS since June 2016, and I’m ready to go home.
