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. Her bright eyes are intent. Her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the 
group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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....

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
