Annual Pet Fest set for Two Rivers Church
The annual Pet Fest, a celebration of animals and the humans who love them, will be 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Two Rivers United Methodist Church, 1820 5th Ave., Rock Island.
The Rock Island Animal Hospital will co-sponsor the event. A doctor and staff from the hospital will be available for questions, and can meet animals, although they will not be able to do check-ups.
Vendors of pet-related goods are invited to set up booths in the parking lot. At a photo booth, people can pose with their animals.
The Rev. Robb McCoy will lead a blessing of the animals at 3:30 p.m. with readings and a special time for prayer with each pet.
At last year's event, most of the animals were dogs, although one person brought a chicken and at least two people brought pictures of their cats.
All animals at the Pet Fest must be leashed or caged at all times. They also must be properly vaccinated, and well-socialized to other animals. As a safety measure, retractable leads are not allowed.
