Each summer, The Church of the Redeemer in Longport welcomes critters of all faiths. Pets of all shapes and sizes are welcome to receive blessings & treats. Watch video above.
This year, ‘The Blessing of the Animals’ will take place on Sunday morning, July 8, 2018. 11am. The Church is located along the bay at 20th & Atlantic Ave. in Longport.
Longport welcomes all of God’s creatures. Furry & feathered. Dogs, cats, birds, and even chubby guinea pigs.
This annual event also raises awareness and funds for the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter. They find homes for animals who’ve been abandoned or rescued from bad environments.
