MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) - Second Cup on Tuesday is joined by Rebecca Woofter, who stopped by to tell us about Blessing of the Animals at Mission San Luis.

WTXL ABC Sunrise Anchor Christine Souders spoke with her.

Pet owners, animal lovers, and furry, feathered, or other friends are invited to the fourteenth annual Blessing of Animals.

The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and is free.

The Blessing of Animals originated in the 13th century in remembrance of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment, who believed that all animals should be treated with dignity and respect.

You're asked to please bring pet food and supply donations for area animal shelters.

Animals must be on leashes or in carriers.
