St. Francis born in Italy around 1181 was the Patron St. of Animals. He preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God.
Each year as autumn arrives, people around the world may notice a procession of animals, everything from dogs and cats to hamsters, horses and birds being led to churches for a special ceremony called the Blessing of Pets. This custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.
Pet's We Love offers a handsome St. Francis of Assisi figurine urn made of cast metal with a bronze finish.
