’Blessing of the Animals:’ Local church hosting fundraiser for Erath County Humane Society.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE

The Erath County Humane Society routinely functions with more animals than space. Money is often tight and executive director Serena Wright and her team of volunteers work long hours every day to ensure that the dozens of homeless animals are well taken care of.

Enter First Christian Church Stephenville.

The church is hosting its annual “Blessing of the Animals” at 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, in its parking lot where residents are invited to bring their pets to be blessed by preacher K.J. Kim.

“We are inviting the community to come out and have their animals blessed by our preacher and bring a donation for the humane society,” church administrative assistant Penny Hallmark told Beneath the Surface News.

The shelter can use items like bleach, laundry soap, fabric softener, clumping kitty litter, cat and dog food, and of course, money.

“Canned dog food is a really big thing because we go through a lot of that,” Wright said. “Cash and gift cards are the best because we can buy what we need and use the money to pay bills.”
