Animal Thanksgiving and Blessing Service, Norfolk

On Sunday 5th October, World Horse Welfare will be holding its annual Animal Thanksgiving and Blessing Service at the charity’s Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton, at 1pm.

The service gives long-term – and new – supporters the chance to come along and remember their cherished pets as well as celebrating the joy that our pets, still here with us today, bring to our lives.

Last year, the charity was joined by not just human guests but also their horses and dogs and World Horse Welfare hopes to see yet more animals of all shapes and sizes this year.

During the service, candles will be lit in appreciation of the unconditional love that pets show to their owners every day. Even if you are unable to join the charity at the service you can still dedicate one or more candles which will be lit on your behalf at the service.

Organiser and legacy fundraiser at World Horse Welfare, Dawn Witney, says: “This is the second time we are running our Animal Welfare Service – it proved so popular last year that we decided to make it an annual event. Our expectations for this year are to see lots more people, with their furry friends, joining us in celebrating the unconditional love that our animals so willingly give to us every day. We would love to see you at the service but if you are unable to join us then please consider dedicating a candle: your donation for a dedicated candle will help support the work of World Horse Welfare to improve the lives of horses in need across the UK and overseas.”
