Animal blessing results in dog adoption – Hastings

A Hastings dog had a prayer answered shortly after returning from church on Sunday.

A volunteer from Start Over Rover — a no-kill, non-profit animal rescue — brought Marian, a beagle/basset hound mix, to the 35th annual Blessing of the Animals Sunday at St. Mark’s Episcopal Pro-Cathedral.

Connie Hansen, a board member for Start Over Rover, said Marian was abandoned late at night about a month ago on Marian Road. While Marian is laid-back and likes children, Hansen said she had been waiting for an adoptive family.
