Gentle St Martin de Porres, you loved the animals God gives to us in the wonders of creation.
Watch over the animals Our Loving Father has provided for our use and welfare. Bless also our pets.
Intercede that all disease and harm may be averted since on them so much of our livelihood and joy depends.
Help us never to be cruel to them or neglectful of them.
May we always, following your example, attend our daily tasks with gratitude and with ever growing love for God and for one another.
And may we know the joy of animals and pets kept safe by your powerful intercession.
We make this and all our prayers through Christ our Lord.
