Just this side of heaven is a place
called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
Our little Penny joins all her friends over the Rainbow Bridge.
Penny, you were loved and learned to be a dog and to love her humans and her foster brothers and sister.
Penny, you will be missed. Fly free sweet Penny.
Heavy gained another Sheltie Angel, Rudy.
We will miss you sweet Rudy. You were much loved and had found your forever home to enjoy, even if it was for a short time with us. Fly free over the Bridge, sweet Rudy.
RIP Luke. We are all heartbroken.
We were hoping you would have a better life after your medical issues, but, it was not to be.
RIP Shelly. You are beloved. May we meet again over the ‘Bridge.
Heaven gained another angel, Shelly.
Shelly is flying free over the Rainbow Bridge. You were held in my arms as you took flight peacefully. Go with love, Shelly. You were a delight and very loving dog. You radiated your love to all who met you. You were silly and loved to chase squirrels, acting like a much younger dog even though you were 14 years old. You ignored Leo with his antics and loved to get snacks and bark at football and sports on TV. You fit right into your home as if you lived there all your life. You were raised with love by your previous owner and it showed in your sweet personality.
Shelly was one of our forever fosters due to her age and medical needs. She had arthritis and had been diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease, both of were treated with medication and testing. Shelly did respond to her treatments while in her forever foster home where she was loved and cared for.
RIP Keira. You have gotten your wings to fly over the Rainbow Bridge.
Heaven gained another angel, Keira.
RIP Max. Join the others in play over the bridge.
Max came into Rescue and enjoyed many months of love and care with his wonderful adoptive forever family. He fit right in with his family and gave back as much love as he was given. It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to Max. His health took a turn for the worse quickly so it was time to help Max cross the Bridge.
RIP Sunny. Fly free over the Rainbow Bridge.
Sunny, half of the Weather Girls, lost her battle with a very aggressive cancer.
Her mom was able to keep her happy and living a great life with the help of several vets since the cancer diagnosis earlier in the year. For a few months Sunny enjoyed her life with her family, surrounded by loved ones, happy, acting like herself, and bouncing around the house and yard and full of life. Toward the end Sunny’s quality of life started to diminish so it was time. Sunny went on her own in her home with her family around her.
The Weather Girls were some of the first dogs that the new board helped out and they will always have a special place in our hearts. Gone, but never forgotten.
RIP dear Grandpa, you were very much loved in the sunset of your life.
The ER vets took him in right away. The fluids and glucose helped a little but not enough, he was fading away. His body was tired and was failing. It is with a very heavy heart that we decided the kindest thing to do for this sweet, sweet dog was to help him over the Rainbow Bridge.
Our dearest Grandpa Spanky, I wish we could have given you another 20 years. But we gave you 6 weeks, where you had a full belly, a soft bed to sleep in, the best vet care we could get you, and you are loved. Oh how much you are loved! Fly free, sweet angel …Grandpa Spanky.
When he was pulled from the shelter he was so frail, and so sweet. He was blind and had been for a long time. He had significant arthritis in his spine. His teeth were so rotten, and that combined with the smell of ammonia was overwhelming – the conditions he came from were pretty horrible.
We got those rotten, infected teeth pulled. It took 3 baths to get rid of the ammonia smell. He was getting accupuncture, cold laser, and chiropractic to help his painful back. That hunch in his back was going away and he was doodling all over the back yard in the sun until he decided it was time to nap. Then, he would lay down and take a nap. He enjoyed snuggling with his foster family.
We’re glad the our rescue got him out of the shelter and and that we got him 6 good weeks in a loving home with the best care we could get for him. We wish we could have given him more time but a lifetime of neglect and poor care finally caught up with him.
