When the Perfect Paws Pet Ministry was launched on May 16, 2010, a wonderful feature story about our unique ministry and worship service -- written by Salem News staff reporter, Ethan Forman -- was picked up by the Associated Press and carried nation- and world-wide.As a result, there was coverage of Perfect Paws in Ireland, Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, England and India, winning us long-distance friends who communicated with us by email -- sending greetings and asking for prayers for their animals.Many of those friends still stay connected with Perfect Paws and receive the Perfect Paws Pet Ministry newsletter each month.Additionally, virtually every print and electronic news outlet in the New England regiion -- including Fox 25 News, MSNBC, WBZ-TV, the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe -- covered our ministry, proclaiming "Boston-area church offers first of a kind pet ministry."Continuing with our unique approach toward celebrating and supporting the human-animal bond, and fostering a love and respect for all creatures in God’s creation, All Saints’s Perfect Paws offers an annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving in time for the Thanksgiving holiday and also invites humans and their animal friends to celebrate a special animal-centered Christmas service. Additionally, Perfect Paws and All Saints are the sponsors the annual commuity-wide Blessing of the Animals, in Danvers.
