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....

In loving memory of Charles Houdini, aka "Charlie." 9/13/1999 - 2/8/2011
Charlie was adopted from the Newfoundland Club of America at seven years old and from that point on, he never looked back. Spending the rest of his days as a beloved family member, Charlie shared his giant heart with the people that knew him and leaves cherished memories of better days as his legacy. Rest in peace, Charlie.
In Memory of Eddie Lawlor
Eddie appears here courtesy of his mom and dad, who have contributed to STAR in his honor. Eddie was adopted as a senior and loved and cherished for the rest of his years. His life was given new quality after he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. He received the finest specialized veterinary care and world class love, adding years to his life. A sweet and loving boy, his favorite place was at the feet of his mom, under her desk until he passed in April '09. He is missed every day, Rest peacefully, Eddie!
Maggie, known as "Meg" in STAR, will be missed by her loving family and each of us here at STAR. Adopted as a senior, her time with her family seemed to have been cut short, but Maggie would likely tell us that all that mattered were those final happy years before bloat took her from this world.
A couple years after adoption, Brutus was euthanized due to complications with a paralyzed larynx in January of 2009. This boy had one of the best homes we've ever found and he will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, sweet Brutus!
Dear, sweet, and precious Nougat passed away quietly on 9/10/08 in his foster home. A wonderful boy full of life, a love for veggies and a knack for trouble, he will be sincerely missed.
