The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called The Rainbow Bridge

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the 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 The Rainbow Bridge together…. Author unknown….

Taz - July, 2016

Colleen, one of the shelter volunteers writes: "Sadly, one of our TAAG babies, Taz, has passed away. Taz came to us at the beginning of the year with his sister Angel. At fifteen he was our most senior resident, and quickly became one of our ‘house’ cats, free to roam as he pleased. It wasn’t long before sweet, adorable Taz adopted the role of TAAG greeter. Taz’s favorite spot in the shelter was the front desk, where he would sit and greet the volunteers and visitors as they came in, waiting patiently for the requisite pets to be bestowed upon him. Often he would even come to the door to greet us, having heard the outer door open, his happy, handsome face beaming up at us as he waited for some loves. There wasn’t a sweeter, more gentle and affectionate cat you could hope to meet than Mr. Taz; he brought much joy and love to the TAAG shelter, to us humans and cats alike. He was simply a gentle soul and big old love bug and will be greatly missed by all of us at TAAG. We are all blessed for having known you. Rest in Peace Taz, may you have all the treats and loves you could possibly want in kitty heaven."

Miss Kitty - January 5, 2016

After a very long life (22 years) with many years of love from Christina and  TAAG Volunteers, the decision was made to let Miss Kitty go peacefully today. She touched all of our lives in ways we will never forget. She had a beautiful soul and will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace sweet girl.
