Res­cued dogs are blessed

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Jack Troughton

An­i­mal char­ity APASA is hold­ing its an­nual party for the tra­di­tional bless­ing of an­i­mals and to mark the fes­ti­val day of San An­to­nio, the pa­tron saint of an­i­mals.

The fun starts at the Javea shel­ter at 13.00 on Satur­day Jan­uary 19 and it al­ways has a spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for the char­ity, founded in 1999, be­cause it takes its name from the saint; the Aso­cia­cion Pro­tec­tora de An­i­males de San An­to­nio.

Each of the dogs cur­rently be­ing cared for by APASA will be blessed by the priest and peo­ple who have res­cued a pet from the shel­ter in Cami de Las Sorts fre­quently re­turn with their dog with an ap­point­ment to meet the holy wa­ter.

The af­ter­noon also prom­ises mu­sic, food and drink, tombola and a va­ri­ety of stalls. Any­one will­ing to take along a homemade cake to do­nate will be made most wel­come too!
