Welcome to Honoring the Animals!

Honoring the Animals (HTA) is an animal blessing and remembrance ceremony that is held in honor of Saint Francis Day. Saint Andrews Church in Louisville, Kentucky hosts the event which is sponsored by Chance's Spot, Pet Loss and Grief Support, a nonprofit organization that helps pet parents and professionals understand and cope with the pain of pet loss and grief. HTA is an annual event held in observance of this special day and is just one of the many ways Chance's Spot supports those who have lost a pet.
