NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - It was a worship service that went to the dogs... and the cats.
Several churches across East Texas held the annual 'Blessing of the Animals' Sunday at Banita Creek Park in Nacogdoches.
People and their pets turned out for the brief worship service.
From cats and dogs, and even birds too, each animal was sprinkled with holy oil and received a special prayer over their life.
'Blessing of the Animals' is an annual event put on by the Humane Society of Nacogdoches County and area pastors.
