All creatures great and small will be gathered in the congregation at the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & District Branch annual animal blessing service on Sunday October 5, at the Halifax Minster.

The service will be conducted by Trish Boyd who will bless the animals that attend.

Previous services have attracted a vast array of animals including a bird of prey and a pony.

Owners should ensure that all pets are well behaved and properly restrained, dogs on leads, cats in baskets and other small animals in travelling cages, equines must be unshod to be allowed in the church.

RSPCA staff will be at the church to welcome and give assistance to owners and their pets.

The service will begin at 2.30pm.
