Church of the 49ers


Bring your well-behaved pets (any species–large, small, unusual), on leashes or leads or in carriers, to the 6th Annual Pet Blessing at the Church of the 49ers. This special event will be held Saturday, May 14th, at 10:00 a.m. on the lawn of the church, located at Parrotts Ferry Road and Jackson Street in Columbia. Shade and seating are provided. The event is free and open to the entire community.

Each pet will be given a personalized blessing by Reverend Janet Russell and its human companion will receive a commemorative certificate. A photographer will also take photos of the pets as they are blessed. Stay for Yappy Hour – a time for treats for the animals and their humans – and have a portrait taken with your pet (free for digital images or at cost for prints). The majority of pets brought to this event have been dogs, but in previous years Reverend Russell has also blessed a miniature horse, full-size horses, cats, a chicken and even a lizard!
