There is a bridge connecting

many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of
meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food
and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill
and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or
maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in
our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy
and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very
special to them, who had to be left behind. 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 begins to
quiver. 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. 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 the Rainbow
never again to be separated.
MOMMYakaLILONE419, 4 1/2
She was a mush kitty who loved to be petted, held and cuddled.
Adorable, playful and really sweet, just like cotton candy. As
I held her in her final moments, I told her that her daughter
"Angel" (who was near death a couple of months ago)
was now doing good. And her son "Tailess" is doing
great. I will miss her terribly. She is at the 'Rainbow
Bridge', playing, running, jumping with all of her friends,
and loving it. God Bless you my "Li'l One", I will
always love you...Linda

Rocky 8 years old
when I saw you coming over the Rainbow Bridge, I could not
believe my eyes. I knew you'd eventually get here (as we
all do) but not so soon. I had a lot of things wrong
with me, as did you, that just didn't present, so here we are.
This is a real cool place. It's great to get into our
confrontation pose, do our rough housing, clean each other,
then nap the way we used to. The sunny front
window from which we watched the world go by; the
admiration we received from the neighborhood was a real ego
boost. It's great to be able to run free here and enjoy
the grass and warm sunshine for real. It is sad to see Rita
cry for us everyday, but someday we'll all be together
again.. I hope she continues helping other cats as she
helped us. God Bless her and others like Norm & Jude
from Muffin's; Denise & Peter of Ferals in
Peril, and Diana & Jill Clemente who devote so
much of their time, money and energy to help all the cats who desperately
need them. Special thanks to MaryJo Tobin whose LOVE
WANTED Adoption Events brought us together. We, and
all the others, thank and Bless your for your efforts!

SKOOTER 12 yrs old. Skooter was just around 3 months old when he came to us and he
was so skittish and scared, he just scooted all over the
place, hence his name "SKOOTER". It took a while but
Skooter and Pumpkin became the best of friends, but they did..
Skooter loved to be brushed and held and was a big baby. He
loved his dry Fancy Feast and his treats. He waited everywhere
for me to give him them. At night he would come and sleep on
me, if I moved he would get off, wait until I stopped and
would lay on me again, he was a big boy.
I still miss him, Pumpkin and Tabitha and I guess I always
will. It doesn't make a difference how many cats or animals you
have, you will always remember them after they pass on, they
will always be my loves and in my heart…Linda
GLENDA, 10YRS OLD. After
suffering on the streets for 5 years, you came into my life

MALCOLM, rescued from ASPCA
16 years ago, was the office mascot kitty to Dr. Kofi's
Animal Clinic in Brooklyn. He lived the last seven
months of his life with Carol Kelly. He was a remarkable
Maine Coon kitty.
an outdoor kitty,
8-10 years old, had many litters (until we caught her). It
took months until we were able to trap her, after her last
litter in June of 2008. I still have two of her babies;
Frisky, a loving Orange boy and Missy, his sister, a pretty
Tabby; she is still very skittish. I love them both. -Linda
was so special; she was my
Tuxedo Love, loved by everyone. She waited for me everyday to
feed her turkey. As she was becoming so close to me, but sadly
a car accident took their precious lives. More people knew of
Bootsie, because she was out there everyday, waiting
for me. All I had to do was call her name, and she came. I
still cannot believe that she is not there, it hurts. The
fact that they survived this brutal winter, and then this
terrible tragedy happened, it is unbelievable. Please say a
pray for my angels.”
ABBY, 24 YRS OLD, was
sent to me 23 yrs ago as a rescue cat with a litter of kittens. She would
help feed homeless kittens with no mom's. Her life was saved
so she could help save other lives. Her spots on her back made in
the shape of a angel, that was true to her. She never suffered
as her life ended. I didn't allow her to get that far. She
completed her mission. She
will be missed.

the beautiful Tessalata Eel, lived in a small bucket, rescued
on December 19, 2010, and sadly swam across the Rainbow
Bridge May 30, 2011. Derek DeCapua saved him from a horrible
demise, being dumped down a sewer. He swam relaxed and
comfortable in a ten gallon tank with heat, air, and
filtration, which Derek and his wife Cathy set up as a
temporary home. He dined on goldfish, silversides, and
spearing, he even knew his family, bobbing and weaving
excitedly when it was time to eat his favorite foods.
Eelijah was entertaining with his fun aquatic antics. He was
dearly loved and touched the hearts of his human friends. His
legacy of saving lives continues. May he swim in Peace…

IN LOVING MEMORY:
Rest in Peace 7/16/10
With a heavy heart and many tears
I confirm to you all our biggest fear.
Our hope for a MIRACLE didn’t come,
To her illness Karen did succumb.
We won’t hear her voice, so filled with love,
But now she’ll love us from way above.
To say we’ve lost a fellow animal lover and friend,
Is to painfully acknowledge her life‘s come to an end.
To say these words out loud are painful to me,
For I know her face I will never again see.
Oh how I wish I hadn’t erased her last voicemail to me,
But who could have known the last it would be.
We can’t say goodbye to her because she’s already passed,
But we can keep her alive by making her memory last.
When you see a stray that's down and out,
Remember what Karen was all about.
Helping an unfortunate creature in need,
Is like allowing Karen to take the lead.
Forever I will remember the sound of her voice,
We know that leaving this earth wouldn’t have been her
As a reward for losing the battle she so bravely fought,
It comforts me now to think this thought.
On Rainbow Bridge she
is happily seated,
No longer sad or feeling defeated.
Free of pain and worldly worries,
She’ll spend eternity with her long lost buddies!
I will miss you my very dear friend!
Love Ya, Mary Jo Tobin

the age of just over 2 years old. Let him rest in peace.
I hope he knows how sad and lonely we are without him because
we loved him so much. Randi

looked after a
little princess and her Nana. The little princess, whose life
is constantly afflicted with severe illness, took in rescue
animals all the time and always put others before her, yet
Flint was always there to put her first. He always knew when
something was going to happen to her. He was always there when
she was having a bad day. He was one of those dogs that would
save a family from a burning house. This is how he got his
name "The Wonder Dog." He loved all animals, all
people. He will be missed by many two and four legged
alike, but especially by his little princess. Australia
