Last Chance Critter Rescue

Saving the animals one at a time

Poems and Words To Comfort

When you have lost your forever friend

Animals who have left us wait at the Rainbow Bridge for our arrival

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

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....

Letter From the Rainbow Bridge

To my beloved owner,

there's some things I'd like to say.

But first of all, to let you know,

that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from the Bridge.

Here I dwell with God above.

Here there are no more tears of sadness.

Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy

just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I am with you

every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you

when my life on earth was through,

God picked me up and hugged me

and He said, "I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again,

you were missed while you were gone.

As for your dearest family,

They'll be here later on."

God gave me a list of things,

that he wished for me to do.

And foremost on the list,

was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night

the day's chores put to flight,

God and I are closest to you...

in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth,

and all those loving years,

because you are only human,

they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry:

it does relieve the pain.

Remember there would be no flowers,

unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you

all that God has planned.

If I were to tell you,

you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain,

though my life on earth is o'er.

I'm closer to you now,

than I ever was before.

There are rocky roads ahead of you

and many hills to climb;

But together we can do it

by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy

and I'd like it for you too;

That as you give unto the world,

the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody

who's in sorrow and pain;

Then you can say to God at night...

"My day was not in vain."

And now I am contented...

that my life was worthwhile.

Knowing as I passed along

I made somebody smile.

God says: "If you meet somebody

who is sad and feeling low;

Just lend a hand to pick him up,

as on your way you go.

When you're walking down the street

with me on your mind;

I'm walking in your footsteps

only half a step behind."

"And when it's time for you to go...

from that body to be free.

Remember you're not going...

you're coming here to me."
