Rainbow Bridge 2016

This page is dedicated to the memory of those animals who have been a part of the AARCS family who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge. It is very hard for us at AARCS when we lose one of our own. This page was inspired after Marea’s sudden and accidental death.

There will always be some who don’t make it to their “forever home.” Maybe we rescued them too late, or maybe it was just fate. But they will have known what it was like to feel the soft hands of someone who cared, to have a full belly and a warm and safe place to sleep. They knew that, even for a short period of time, they were loved and will never be forgotten… Today they await their rescuers at the Rainbow Bridge.

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.

All the animals who had 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 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….
