The Frances Willis SPCA held a Blessing of the Animals at the Farmer’s Market in Summerville earlier this month. Father Bob O’Connell and Father Vincent from the St. Padre Pio Old Catholic Church on Trolley Road in Summerville blessed each owner and their pet during a special ceremony.

 Approximately 50 owners and dogs participated, including dogs from the SPCA in their ‘Adopt Me’ attire. Volunteers from the Board of Directors and Animal Allies rescue organization tended to the SPCA animals.

SPCA Volunteers brought SPCA dogs to be blessed at the Farmer's Market in Summerville during a Blessing of the Animals event. From left to right are volunteers: Patti Kiraly, Cheryl Bruns, Terry Kiraly, Carla Westmoreland, Cathy Eckels, and Jennifer Swenning.

Barbara & Walter Limehouse, owners of the Farmer’s welcomed the event as part of the weekly Saturday event.  “The Limehouses were very generous to allow the SPCA to conduct this event during the Farmer’s Market,” said Walton Salley, Interim Shelter Manager.

“We have wonderful animals available for adoption. The animals are fully vetted for an affordable fee of $120 for dogs and $105 for cats,” said Salley.
“We are also in dire need of dog, cat, kitten and puppy food which can be dropped off at 136 Four Paws Lane (off Highway 78).”

And in other FRWillis SPCA news: Carolina One Real Estate offices in Summerville recently held a food drive for the animals at the Frances R. Willis SPCA. Carolina One donated over 6,600 pounds of food and cat litter for the animals. Carolina One has been a sponsor of the annual SPCA Oyster Roast and Silent Auction and a financial supporter of the SPCA over the last several years. Kudos to Carolina One!
