New pet?

(2020) Have you recently added a pet to your family? Are you in the planning stages: deciding whether to look to a responsible breeder, rescue organization, or foster opportunity? Perhaps you are searching for strategies to ensure your pet’s well-being when family members return to work and school.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a dramatic increase in pet adoptions. Bringing a new pet home can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life! At times it can also feel overwhelming.

Watch for upcoming programs, including our annual blessing of the animals and pet memorial service. The details and format are still in the planning stages as we navigate the new challenges facing us. We would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions you may have.

We would love to have you join our Pet Ministry Group; email Julie Opheim.
