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....
This is a Therapy visit that will always be remembered:
We were taken into a locked day room by a nurse. As we entered the room you could hear a pin drop as there wasn't a sound. There were many patients in wheel chairs all around the room.
There was no reaction to seeing Lacey in her stroller. I pushed Lacey next to a lady and asked if she would like to pet the doggie. There was no response. Then I asked her if she would like to pet Lacey. She then started wacking Lacey, I took her hand and rubbed Lacey's back, all of sudden she smiled then there were tears in her eyes and she looked at me and said dogggggggggg. I turned around and saw the RN that was escorting us with tears in her eyes too. She looked at me and said I never heard her speak before.
I'm thankful that I had Lacey's stroller to hang on to as my knees turned into jelly and we were able to leave the room.
All in all that's what Pet Therapy is about.
Sophie Alana Davis
Our beloved rescue dog, Sophie, passed away today at 12:26 A.M. from a brain tumor. She had no symptoms and suddenly had multiple seizures at 3 AM on July 29,2012. Despite the Vet Hospital's valiant attempt to save her, she passed on at 12: 26 A.M. today. Sophie was a stray in Trenton, N.J. and was bound for the shelter when we saved her. She was our little,starving street urchin that crossed the right street at the right moment and changed our lives forever. Sophie was two years old when we saved her and lived a perfect fairy tale for 7 yrs. with us. She died a pain free and peaceful death, befitting her gentle soul. Sophie loved everyone and even went into nursing homes and assisted living places, wagging her tail and showing off her sweet self. She loved to go to the park daily or just sit in the sun in our house or yard. Sophie never soiled in the house from the day we found her and never destroyed a single thing. She was quiet, loving, and most of all...our little girl. She will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was tucked into bed and had her teeth brushed every night, while we sang her the Sophie lullybye...You are my Sophie, my little Sophie, you are my sweetheart that I love, you are my good girl, you are my sweet girl, oh I love my Sophie in every way.... By the end of the song, she was fast asleep. Now, with all of our wonderful memories of a perfect dog, one that would have surely been put to sleep at the shelter for being a stray Pit Bull, we say farewell and hope that you are running in the fields with our other rescue dog, Robin, who passed over the Rainbow Bridge in Sept., 2008. We will meet again, someday.
Love you, our little Petunia, and rest in peace.

Shelby (Diamond Too)
Shelby brought so much joy to my life the moment I picked her up from Wag on in Rescue. Upon entering her new home 5 years ago Shelby was wagging her tail and was immediately settled into her new home. She was the perfect pet for me. We would go on 4 to 5 walks a day and she loved each and every one. It took her a few minutes to warm up to strangers, however, once she knew they were my friends she became best friends with them. Shelby made non dog lovers into dog lovers. Shelby also loved to sleep in my bed and the spare bed. She loved to spread out and sleep. She ate the best foods, had the best snacks and had the best person looking out for her. She was a joy to be around. Everyone who came across Shelby loved her. She will be missed by everyone. I will miss her the most and will never forget her. I am grateful that Shelby came into my life and she was worth every second of my time. She always brought a smile to my face and I know she was extremely happy in the Troy household. We all miss you Shelby. Ed, Amy and Gabby.
