Memorials

Many people take comfort in believing that when pets die, they go to the Rainbow Bridge. They romp in the meadows and forests. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. 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 gone by. The animals are happy, but they miss someone who had to be left behind.

They all play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he or she breaks away from the group, flying over the green grass. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend meet, you embrace 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. . .

If your RAGOM dog has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, please email rainbowbridge@ragom.org, and include photos and stories of their life after adoption.
