(MURFREESBORO) Sprinkles with temps around 50 did not deter animal lovers from bringing their canine and feline family to Beesley Animal Foundation at 2215 Keeneland Commercial Boulevard for the 2nd Annual Blessing of the Pets from 10AM to 1PM on Saturday (10/27/2018).
Beesley Animal Foundation Executive Director Amanda Oliver told NewsRadio WGNS . . .
Rev. Dr. John Hinkle of Murfreesboro First Presbyterian Church held a short service outside before pets and human friends went inside for individual blessings that were held in the privacy of examination rooms.
Dr. Hinkle said . . .
Following the blessing, guests toured the Beesley Animal Foundation building and learned more about the services and programs by the 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
For those well-behaved leashed or crated cats and dogs in attendance, rabies and distemper vaccinations were offered for $15 each. Guests also scheduled spay/neuter surgeries.

More About The Organization
Jesse C. Beesley, a local noted sculptor, was instrumental in forming the first humane society in Rutherford County in 1976. He inspired the formation of the spay/neuter clinic in 1992. Beesley is especially proud it was instrumental in establishing the requirement that all adopted animals be spayed/neutered and in support of that requirement we operate an affordable spay/neuter clinic where approximately 175 surgeries (both shelter adoptions and public pets) are performed each month. Since the opening of our clinic in May 1992 we have performed thousands of surgeries.
