Because of COVID-19 precautions, St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church’s 25th annual blessing of the animals was a drive-up with the Revs. Martin Zlatic and Mary Naughton blessing each animal that arrived at the Boynton Beach church.
More than $500 was raised to be donated to the K9 units for the Boynton Beach and Delray Beach police departments. The church donated an extra $400 to the departments. Zlatic and Naughton blessed six K9 units and about 100 animals in all, including a mouse. The drive-up format made it easier to participate than usual.
