A faithful and her dog attend a mass during the traditional animal blessing at El Salvador church in the city of Valladolid, northern Spain, 17 January 2020.

Each 17 January, pets and animals are blessed to be healthy during the year to mark St. Anton or St. Antonio Abad Day, the animal’s patron saint.
