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. 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....

We covered our precious Packer with a blanket of tears as he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.
About six years ago a man drove up and said that he was going to shoot a small, brown tabby cat he had found if we didn’t take her. Of course we took the frightened feline, and that day Clover became part of the Rescued Tails family.
~On June 3, 2016, my beloved Nala crossed over the rainbow bridge. Memories of her will be cherished by all who knew this one of a kind, 80 pound, Rottweiler mix. Nala touched, impacted, and created unforgettable bonds with four generations of our family with her calm, loyal, and human-like demeanor. Lady, Sophia, Simba, and Rafiki are going to miss swimming in the pool, running around the yard, and competing for grandpa’s affection with you. I will miss the gleam in your eyes and Kool-Aid smile whenever you heard the phrase, “do you wanna go for a…….”. Your Scooby-Doo antics will never be forgotten. Thank you for being a part of my life and my heart. You were and will always be the best dog ever, my baby. Nala, I will see you somewhere over the rainbow.
Rescued from the streets, after eight years in a home
Trotting over to greet us each time we
You gave the best hugs, and loved our “cuddle time”
Perfect patient …but too many times a patient.
Go climb to the top of your kitty tree, sweet Calista,
Our beloved friend came into the Rescued Tails family over seven years ago after being found abandoned in an apartment. He had an injury to his knee and x-rays showed someone had once shot him. But Ceaser lived his life without holding a grudge - he absolutely loved people. Never before did we have a dog who enjoyed going to the vet as much as Ceaser - if people were involved, he was all for it. He was a "talker" at times, but we knew he meant no harm. Ceaser enjoyed his days with us snoozing in the sunshine, going on walks and even attending dog training classes where he licked the faces clean of every human he encountered. He enjoyed coffee time, TV time and just plain "pet me" time. Ceaser had a multitude of health issues over the years that we were able to fix or manage except for one that recently surfaced. The cancer came so fast and hard that even the best doctors could not give a good prognosis for our 13 year old friend. On Sept. 30th, 2015, we helped Ceaser cross over the Bridge and end his suffering. We miss you old boy. Say hello to the others - it shall be a grand reunion when we all meet again
