Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 26th, 11am-2pm, at the Kensington Community Center, 59 Arlington Ave, Kensington for the Kensington Animal Fair. At 12 noon Pastor Tony Clark, M.Div., D.V.M., will offer a blessing of the animals for pets and owners.
The day will include demonstrations by Hazel Weiss and her service dog, K-9 Police Dogs, dog training, Friends of the Library, Dog Scouts of America, and a raffle. We'll have homeless cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds needing adoption or fostering. Contra Costa County Animal Care and Control will provide low cost inoculations, micro-chipping, and registration with amnesty. Their veterinarian will talk with you about the best health care for your pet. Our local Girl and Boy Scouts will be selling snacks and beverages.
Along with the raffle, you'll have an opportunity to donate money to the rescue orgs. Please send raffle items to the church, and checks made out to ACC or Arlington Community Church with Animal Fair on the memo line. All donations go to the rescue organizations - we will give you a donation letter for your tax deductions.
So bring your pets for a blessing, open your hearts to a homeless pet, and have a wonderful family day in the park.
