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....
As anyone who has had a pet knows, there comes a time when we are sadly faced with losing our beloved companion. We open our hearts and homes to these wonderful creatures that we care for, feed, play with, keep healthy and love with all our heart. They give us joy, companionship, laughter and unconditional love too. When they leave us, our heart is broken and our home is empty. The Purr-fect Cat Shelter knows that part of healing from the loss of a pet can be helped by remembering the pet through a perpetual memorial. The Purr-fect Cat Shelter is offering an opportunity to memorialize your beloved pet on our new Rainbow Bridge Memorial Wall.
The mural at the shelter is the work of Erin Burns, a talented, young lady who has volunteered in a number of ways for the shelter for several years. Erin thoughtfully captured the essence of this beautiful poem in the mural she designed and painted for us. We believe this special wall at the shelter is an ideal offering to supporters to remember and honor your pet.
Your Gold, Silver or Bronze memorial plate will be engraved with your dedication and an etching (if desired), and placed on the wall as a permanent remembrance of your special pet.
Three levels of memorial are available.
Gold Memorial - $500.00 Silver Memorial - $300.00 Bronze Memorial - $150.00
Each Gold, Silver or Bronze plate measures 1” x 3” and allows up to 60 characters total (including spaces), 4 lines maximum. If you would like to add a remembrance of your pet to our Rainbow Bridge Memorial Wall please fill out the form below and submit with your payment. All Memorial Donations are tax deductible.
Please include my beloved pet on the Purr-fect Cat Shelter Rainbow Bridge Memorial Wall.
