Unusual celebration of World Animal Day

A canary, a goldfish, a guinea pig, a handful of cats and more than two dozen dogs received blessings from a Catholic priest in a Netherlands church to mark World Animal Day. The event featured a weddings zone for pets to tie the knot.

In this ceremony, Rev. Pierre Valkering led his congregation in songs and prayers - frequently interrupted by meowing and yapping from the pews - before the blessing took place.

"Animals go through life with us, and that can be a great comfort," the priest said. Link
