All are invited to join us on Sunday, October 8 for our annual Animal Blessing and Earth Celebration!

We will be hosting this community event in our parking lot from 2pm to 4pm. Visit with the NCH Therapy dogs, the Arlington Heights Bookmobile, the Arlington Heights Forestry Department and the AHPD K-9 squad. Plant seeds with the Arlington Heights Garden Club and find out about pet portraits from Bottle & Bottega. Visit with representatives from the Buddy Foundation, Many Paws Global Rescue, PetSuites, Pet Supplies Plus, Preiser Animal Hospital and Prospect Animal Hospital. There will also be giant bubble making and a chance to win fun prizes in a raffle.

Bring your pet (either on a leash or in a carrier) for an individual blessing. If you don’t have a pet, please come out anyway there is lots to see and do! Invite your friends and neighbors – all are welcome!
