Bring your household pets and good intentions for the animals of Puerto Vallarta to the SPCA-PV’s Third Annual Blessing of the Animals at the beautiful chapel of Hacienda San Angel Sunday, January 17, the Feast Day of St. Anthony de Abad. This is a traditional Church celebration and is observed in other churches.
The free event will take place at 1 pm at the chapel “Puerta del Cielo” at Miramar 363, just above the Cathedral de Guadalupe in El Cerro. Snacks will be available for a donation after the blessing, across the street at the Hacienda.
Your pets will be welcome there as well. Whether or not you have a pet to bring with you, the event is a charming and heartwarming spectacle, as well as an opportunity to declare with your presence your hopes for more respectful and humane treatment of local animals.
