KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Kansas City, Mo., held its annual blessing of the animals over the weekend.

Besides blessing domestic pets like cats and dogs, the church also welcomed exotic animals. One family even brought their chicken out to be blessed.

Those who came out say it's important because animals are just as much a part of families as people are.
Many people attending the service brought donations for Wayside Waifs and Great Plains SPCA.
