The church’s pet service on July 15 was attended by plenty of dogs and even one snake.

The service was held by Revd. Dominique Turnham who had her dog by her side throughout the entirety of the service.

Every pet received a blessing and the Revd. Turnham was even brave enough to give one to the snake.

There were even dogs attempting to join in with the singing as the service was enjoyed by both humans and pets.
