A second-line and Blessing of the Pets were part of the 15th-anniversary celebration for Heaven’s Pets at Lake Lawn Metairie on Oct 24. The Red Wolf Brass Band led the march of more than 100 pets and their owners through Metairie Cemetery, and the Rev. Andrew Taormina led the Blessing of the Pets.
Heaven’s Pets presented a $5,000 donation to Anna 4 Paws, a charity organization that donates K-9 first aid kits to working canines. Animal rescue organizations on hand with information and animals for adoption were JPAWS, Jefferson SPCA, Animal Rescue New Orleans, The Inner Pup, Nola Girl Charitable Giving and Zeus’ Rescues.
