“We welcome all animals and owners. Please make sure they, the animals, are on leases or in a carrier or crate,” a spokesman said.

There will be refreshments for animals, adults, kids. ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to share your love of animals with others, we always linger after the ceremony to chat with other same minded people.

“A food donation for the Jefferson County Humane Society would be very welcome; they would really appreciate it. In case of rain, we will go inside,” the spkesman said.
