Gig Harbor Methodist Church will hold a “Blessing of the Animals” service from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Sunday on the front lawn of the church, 7400 Pioneer Way, Gig Harbor.
The Rev. Jim Head-Corliss will lead the blessing, the first for the church.
“I had seen this at another church, and I wanted to bring the blessing here,” church member Carolyn Mitchell said.
Many pet owners are signed up already. Some animals include a horse and a pot-bellied pig. Domestic dogs, cats and other pets also are on the list.
People who have lost pets are invited to light a candle in memory of any loved one.
