Charity takes over Cathedral for a day!


Wood Green Animal Shelter celebrated their 80th birthday by holding their annual pet service at Peterborough Cathedral for the first time in the event’s 17 year history on Sunday, 23rd May.

The event - previously held at Ely Cathedral - invites supporters of the charity and animal lovers alike to have their pets blessed by the Archdeacon of Oakham, The Venerable David Painter.

Animals of all breeds, type and sizes attend the event each year including Wood Green's very own Penpal pets mascot; miniature Shetland pony Noddy and his friend and companion Max the Shire horse. A procession of working animals from a variety of animal welfare organisations including PAT Dogs, Pro Dogs and Hearing Dogs for Deaf people led the ceremony which was followed by numerous hymns and the Blessing of the animals.

Nicola Bacon, Spokesperson for Wood Green Animal Shelters said, "This is one of the most popular Wood Green events, and by holding the service in Peterborough we hope to see many friends and supporters from the area."
