A ceremony to bless the pets of some 30 parishioners of the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Ipoh (Malaysia), was held at the church grounds on 7 October 2018 at 2.00pm. The ceremony was held in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of animals. Fr. Joseph Stephen said a prayer for the pets and their owners, then blessed them all. There were mainly dogs with some cats. Even a pair of Terrapins were there. This video captures the moments from the photos provided by Tony Oon and JAG.
