URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community/article/calif_synagogue_holding_animal_blessing_20110104

A Southern California synagogue is having its third annual “blessing of the animals.” Congregation Dor Hadash in San Diego holds the event in honor of Tu b’Shevat, the 15th day of Nissan, which this year falls on Jan. 20. Pet owners are invited to bring their pets to the Reconstructionist shul by noon Sunday, Jan. 9, where they will be blessed by Rabbi Yael Ridburg. Furred, winged and swimming creatures are all welcome -- from cats to turtles.
