With the current pope of the Catholic Church making the unusual choice
of taking the name Francis as his papal name, there has been a renewed interest in Saint
Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment. You
can bring the blessing of the Saint upon your dog or cat with the
addition of a St. Francis tag to their collar.

While there are many larger-than-life legends about the good St. Francis, he was most certainly known for his limitless compassion towards all, both humans and animals. He believed that all creatures deserved to be treated with respect.  This very special pet tag was designed to commemorate the Saint's legacy as the patron saint of animals.

The front of the tag depicts an image of St. Francis with a dog and bears the words "Saint Francis: Love of All God's Creatures." On the back is a prayer of protection. The medal is cast of bronze alloy with an antique bronze finish. It comes with a hook for easy attachment to your pet's collar.
